A drive along the Midtown Mile on a gorgeous autumn day reveals continued work on what will soon be one of the area’s newest restaurants.
Not only that, but La Tagliatella, a European-based Italian restaurant concept with more than 130 locations across Spain and France, will begin its first U.S. expansion plan with the opening of the flagship store in Midtown.
It will be housed in the former Silk restaurant space at the Shops at Metropolis at 919 Peachtree St. Located on the highly visible pin corner at 8th St., the new eatery will showcase “traditional Italian recipes made with the highest quality ingredients.”
After Atlanta-based real estate investment and management firm Jamestown announced last spring the restaurant's lease signing, Kristen Morris, senior leasing manager for Jamestown, said, “Jamestown is focused on attracting a distinguished blend of dining concepts and retailers in order to cultivate a unique and progressive atmosphere, particularly at the street level.”
The restaurant is targeted for fall opening and a new business means new jobs, too. See here for career opportunities with La Tagliatella.
A company press release reads:
The restaurant will offer genuine Italian cuisine served in a relaxed-yet-distinctive atmosphere, including a center-stage pizza kitchen, as well as a full wine and spirits bar. Atlantans will be the first to savor the genuine tastes of Italy on La Tagliatella’s signature menu featuring a variety of traditional dishes including antipasto, insalate, lasagna and artfully crafted combinations of pasta and sauces, along with more than 20 unique Napoletano-style pizzas, created with authentic ingredients.
From Parmigiano-Reggiano DOP to pomodoro, La Tagliatella’s key ingredients are imported from the northern regions of Italy and give the restaurant’s extensive, approachable menu its authenticity. For more than 20 years, Europeans have loved La Tagliatella as the destination for an exceptional dining experience with an incomparable ambiance that cannot be found in other Italian restaurants. Generous servings are perfect for sharing – from antipasto to the restaurant’s irresistible desserts – and guests are surrounded by enchanting décor that welcomes and surprises on every visit.
La Tagliatella first opened in 1991 and has since experienced successful growth throughout Spain and France. Setting its sights on expansion throughout the U.S., future plans for the brand include openings across multiple states throughout 2012 and 2013. A second location is planned to open in the Clarendon area of Arlington, Va., followed by a third store at Emory Point, a Cousins Properties development located in Decatur.
