Beni’s Cubano and The Southern Candy Company are also slated to open in Peachtree Center Downtown.
Peachtree Center Monday announced several new eateries coming to The Hub as part of a project to renovate and modernize the retail center that serves the complex’s six office towers and multiple connecting hotels: Salata, Bep!, The Southern Candy Company, Taste of India and Beni’s Cubano.
What Now Atlanta earlier today reported on the forthcoming Beni’s Cubano and last week broke news of The Southern Candy Company’s plans.
The restaurants will open on a rolling schedule beginning later this year and into early 2018, as work continues to progress on transforming the retail center into The Hub.
“Downtown Atlanta is the city’s cultural core, and an important part of that experience is food,” Amy Fingerhut, first vice president at CBRE, who leased the new restaurants, said in a prepared statement.
“Peachtree Center, an active, transit-oriented destination, needs palate-pleasing eateries to serve the 12 million people who visit The Hub annually, and we’re positioned in a great spot for any restaurant, from healthy, quick-service concepts to sit-down spots for a business meeting or dinner with friends and family.”
Salata at The Hub will be the build-your-own salad chain’s third location in Atlanta.
Bep! is a first-to-market Vietnamese concept, known for customizable street foods like bahn mi, vermicelli and pho. The restaurant also offers bao buns and Vietnamese coffee, and pressed sugarcane juice.
From the Southern Proper Hospitality team behind fellow Peachtree Center eatery Tin Lizzy’s Cantina, the first intown Atlanta location of Beni’s Cubano will open at The Hub.
Taste of India, from Paradise Biryani’s Siva Gandikota, will offer a mix of north and south Indian cuisine.
Lastly, Southern Candy Company will move into a permanent location after 20 years in Downtown Atlanta.
All five new restaurants will open on the Gallery Level of The Hub, located directly under the courtyard and at the center of the renovation project, joining Aviva By Kameel, Panbury’s, Chick-fil-A and Yami Yami.
Peachtree Center’s retail center is currently evolving into The Hub, which will wrap up construction in spring 2019, bringing new food offerings and experiences to Downtown Atlanta.
The indoor dining area will receive a complete facelift, better connecting it to the outdoor courtyard and Peachtree Street, and Fingerhut is working to remerchandise the retail mix to better suit the office workers, locals and hotel guests who visit The Hub.
