Highly anticipated sandwich shop, Villains, will open in Midtown early next year. The "wicked heroes" crew signed on a space at 903 Peachtree Street, across from the Vortex and in the same shopping center as Noodle and Lime Taqueria. It'll replace Little Azio, which shutters on December 15. Owners Alex Brounstein of Grindhouse Burgers and Jared Lee Pyles and Jason McClure, formerly of HD1 and Flip Burger, are revamping the interior completely; renovations to the space include the addition of a 12-seat bar.
In September, the sandwich slingers held a pop-up lunch at Miso Izakaya, which gave guests a sneak peek at the menu. The restaurant is slated to open for lunch and dinner in late January and will offer around 12 sandwiches— most of which will be served hot— as well as salads, soups, and sides like vegetarian chicarrones. The Villains team also plans to eventually host a supper club-style dinner service on the weekends.
