Space formerly occupied by Cakes and Ale, at 155 Sycamore Street in historic Decatur Square, house the new businesses.

An exact opening day has not yet been “pinpointed,” a company spokesperson in an email Wednesday told What Now Atlanta.

A pop-up at B-Side was held Wednesday morning.

“At The Deer and The Dove, Chef Koval’s cuisine will pay homage to the bounty of the region’s surrounding farms and local purveyors,” according to a press release Tuesday.

“With many items coming out of a wood-burning oven and grill, the cooking at The Deer and The Dove will be rustic, creative New American cuisine, rooted in the seasons with ingredients sourced from local farms.”

Guests can expect an ever-changing and seasonally driven lineup of dishes including vegetable platters and shared plates with local cheeses, chef cured meats and in-house-baked bread.

Smaller items will also be available such as Quail, strawberry lacquered with red peas, and Beef Tartare, made with Comfort Farms aged dairy cow beef, soft boiled gribiche, focaccia, and olive oil.

A selection of full plates include Whole Wood Roasted Bramlett Farm Trout with kale florets, green coriander cream, sweetbreads, and nasturtium powder, the D&D Grilled Burger with thyme aioli, chanterelle mushrooms, gouda and truffle cheese, crispy shallots and salted egg yolk on a brioche bun and a Comfort Farms Bone-In Dry Aged Ribeye, served with a housemade anchovy and grilled onion relish and beef fat potatoes.

B-Side will serve NY bodega-style breakfast and lunch sandwiches (think “egg on a roll”), wood-fired bagels, salads, soups, and other bites.

The restaurant will also house a full-service coffee bar with espresso-based drinks using Counter Culture’s coffee.

Starting late summer, B-Side will transform into a bar in the evenings with a focus on natural wines, cocktails, and small plates, and on occasion, the space will host pop-up dinners from local and visiting chefs.

A long shared hallway connects The Deer and The Dove to sister-spot B-Side, doubling as an interior passageway for those seeking to move from dinner to late-night cocktails next door.

The Deer and The Dove will be open for dinner service Tuesday through Thursday, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday, 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

B-Side will serve breakfast and lunch Tuesday through Sunday, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
