An Atlanta chef plans to bring a Japanese tapas and modern yakitori grill concept to Morningside Village in January 2017.
Chef Chad Crete, formerly with Castellucci Hospitality Group and Iberian Pig is partnering with Anthony Vipond to open a restaurant called Whiskey Bird, according to What Now Atlanta.
Crete recently announced their plans on Facebook, saying, “We are very excited to announce our new company Back of the Napkin Hospitality will be introducing our first restaurant concept to Atlanta in January 2017…We are excited to introduce a new concept to Atlanta and the neighborhood.”
Whiskey Bird will open on North Highland Avenue in the space that formerly held Timone’s Pizza, Crete wrote.
What Now Atlanta reports that in addition to a tapas-style, modern yakitori grill, the restaurant will also have a selection of full entree portions.
