Jamaican restaurant Perfect Seasoning will be opening a second location in the upcoming commercial development Terminal South in Atlanta’s Peoplestown neighborhood.
Co-owner Dalisha Williams told What Now Atlanta that the restaurant should be open by the first quarter of 2024. Williams, who already signed the lease for the new space, will be running the second location with Jamaican-born chef and co-owner Nicoy McLean.
The second location at Terminal South’s food hall Switchman Hall will have a different layout than the one at Chattahoochee Food Works, according to Williams who said that the new restaurant will be larger and that she is working with an architect to look into how to best utilize that extra space.
The restaurant is known for its Caribbean-inspired menu, which includes Oxtails and Jamaican Jerk Smoked Chicken along with various side dishes that include fried plantains, steamed cabbage, and rice and peas. Williams said that the second location will have a space dedicated to selling Jamaican spices and that some new items might be added to the menu.
Terminal South is one of Stafford Properties’ latest projects that has been seeing interest in leasing at the space. Terminal South’s Switchman Hall is expected to feature 18 food stalls that range in size from 350 to 750 square feet, according to the company’s press release.
“In all seriousness, the level of interest and pace of leasing have been just incredible. We’re really thankful to be working with a local architecture firm that not only shares our vision, but is able to pivot with us to meet demand,” said project developer Melissa Ahrendt.
