What do a former “Top Chef” contestant, pioneers of the sushi burrito and a health food purveyor have in common? They are going to be among the first tenants at Midtown Coda's food hall.
Portman Holdings has secured a trio of famed Atlanta restaurateurs as the debut tenants at its food hall known as The Collective, which is part of its $375M, 770K SF Coda high-performance computing office tower at 771 Spring St. in Midtown.
Former “Top Chef” contestant and El Super Pan founder Hector Santiago is opening El Burro Pollo Burrito Kitchen, a concept based on Santiago's pop-up eatery. Santiago is best known for his El Super Pan sandwich shop at Ponce City Market, a concept he recently announced plans to expand to The Battery at SunTrust Park. El Burro Pollo is a Mexican street food concept.
Poke Burri founders Ken Yu and Seven Chan have signed a lease to open a second Poke Burri at The Collective. Poke Burri, which got its start in East Atlanta Village, is a sushi restaurant that offers dishes like sushi burritos, poke bowls and novelties such as sushi doughnuts and sushi corn dogs. The duo opened a Poke Burri in 2016, which was designated a What Now Atlanta's “Elite 100” restaurant a year later.
Portman also inked a deal with the owners of salad shop Wildleaf to open a second location at The Collective. SRS Real Estate Partners vice presidents Adrienne Crawford and Lily Heimburger brokered the deals for the landlord. Portman is developing the high-tech tower on West Peachtree Street in the heart of Georgia Tech Square. Georgia Tech will be the main office anchor at Coda.
