Michael Patrick and Pietro Gianni, the team behind Buckhead’s Storico Fresco, Monday in a press release announced their forthcoming West Midtown eatery will be named Forza Storico.
The Roman-inspired eatery which is set to replace Little Bach in Westside Provisions District (WSPD) was nameless when it was first announced mid-2018.
“On the ground level, opposite of JCT Kitchen and facing the common area garden, Patrick and Gianni have joined forces, again, to bring the Westside a true Roman experience,” according to Monday’s release.
Forza Storico is Roman slang for “let’s do this.”
The restaurant, set to open summer 2019 at 1198 Howell Mill Road, will include full-dining, an “elevated” bar experience, and a patio.
Unlike its sister restaurant in Buckhead, Forza Storico will not offer a retail market.
WSPD later this year will also welcome Aziza from Tal Baum of Ponce City Market’s Bellina Alimentari and Zeb Stevenson’s Red Bird which is currently in permitting with the City of Atlanta.
