Marc Forgione, Shake Shack, And Others Coming To Atlanta

It's about time! It looks like the wheels are finally turning on Atlanta's highly-anticipated Buckhead Atlanta luxury retail and restaurant community, which will have  1,400 retail shops and boutiques, 5,000 hotel rooms, as well as the recently-announced lengthy list of 200 restaurants including Atlanta's first Shake Shack and the South's first American Cut by Marc Forgione, according to AJC blog. Other restaurants that will open in the space include New York's Le Bilboquet, the Texan-favorite upscale tavern American F+B, and a 2,725 square-foot outpost of Doraku Sushi.

Other eateries include Corso Coffee, an upscale coffee bar with handcrafted beverages; Gypsy Kitchen, a Spanish fusion restaurant; Lugo Caffé, an Italian restaurant specializing in homemade pasta; a gastropub called the Southern Gentleman; and Thirteen Pies, an artisanal pizzeria.
