On Friday, Anne Quatrano broke ground on the new location for her celebrated Atlanta restaurant Bacchanalia and the gourmet market Star Provisions.
The 10,000-square-foot space is part of a project known as Ellsworth Office Lofts. It’s owned by Stream Realty and sits near Topgolf Midtown.
Bacchanalia and Star Provisions are relocating from Westside Provisions District on Howell Mill Road, where Quatrano and her husband, Clifford Harrison, have been since 1999. Bacchanalia originally opened in 1993 in Buckhead.
Quatrano called the new location a perfect fit.
“It’s a built-for-us location, which I think is only a dream with a restaurant,” she said. “I’ve never had that opportunity. I always take a strangely-configured space and make it work. This we got to design from the ground up.”
She added the site will offer ample parking and greenspace for a future garden.
Stream Realty Partners L.P. launched the $12 million Ellsworth Office Lofts more than a year ago. It features 75,000 square feet of new loft office space geared to West Midtown creative firms.
Stream Realty’s Ben Hautt, Chris Dean and Kevin Driver spearheaded the deal to relocate Bacchanalia.
Bacchanalia and Star Provisions likely will reopen in the new space in first-quarter 2017. Star Provisions To-Go will remain in its current location. And, Little Bach will close.
