The Latin, Asian-fusion spot is the first in Atlanta from All In Restaurant Group.
Columbia, South Carolina-based Publico Kitchen & Bar is expanding to Atlanta.
The Latin, Asian-fusion eatery will take over the space at 1004 Crescent Avenue formerly occupied by Front Page News, Michael Duganier, COO of Publico’s parent company All in Restaurant Group, Tuesday confirmed to What Now Atlanta in a telephone interview.
An Atlanta location had previosuly been teased on Publico’s website as “coming soon,” without mention of the exact space.
The menu is centered around tacos but also offers ramen and poke bowls, which have recently exploded in popularity.
The Atlanta location’s offerings will differ slightly and the space won’t be recognizable after renovations, according to Duganier.
Artificial turf will cover the patio to produce a “backyard vibe” and upstairs walls will be removed opening up the space.
The bar will be moved to the second floor and offer a variety of drinks on tap including beer, house cocktails, wine, sake and other libations.
The Atlanta restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. Brunch will be introduced “a few months” after Publico Midtown debuts.
Expect an early 2018 opening.
