Zarate Kitchen, a local kitchen and tiki bar inspired by modern Filipino cuisine and family traditions from brothers Marcus and Michael Fernandez, is now open at Dailies & Sides at Pullman Yards.
Following a successful one-night pop-up during one of the venue’s monthly Asian Night Markets, which take place every fourth Friday of the month, the Zarate Kitchen and Pullman Yards teams joined forces, according to a press release.
Extending the Dailies & Sides patio and seating, the restaurant features Zarate’s signature menu favorites, from “pulutan” small bites and islander tacos to “balikbayan” combo boxes.
The Fernandez brothers learned to cook from their grandmother in the Philippines, who operated her own neighborhood store on Zarate Street a few yards away from their childhood home. Zarate at Dailies emulates this journey, serving a few of her classics, like lumpia (hand-rolled crispy Filipino pork egg roll), adobo and barbecue pork and chicken, and arroz a Valenciana.
“We are extremely humbled and grateful to be partners with the Pullman family,” co-founder and chef Marcus Fernandez said. “This gives us an incredible opportunity to be a part of this neighborhood, share our love of island culture and add to the contagious energy and vibes here at Pullman Yards.”
Zarate at Dailies is now open on the Dailies & Sides patio Wednesday through Sunday (with the D&S menu also available), and it takes over the kitchen on Mondays and Tuesdays. Seating is available on the patio and inside Dailies & Sides.
Pullman Yards is an entertainment district in the Kirkwood neighborhood of Atlanta.
