Is Antico opening a Buckhead location? Tomorrow's News Today reports that Giovanni Di Palma's oft-hyped pizza place is "likely" in the middle of "finalizing a lease for the former Lime Fresh Mexican Grill space" at the intersection of West Paces Ferry Road and Early Street. Di Palma is also expanding the site of his original location into the Piazza San Gennaro and will open an Antico outpost in Avalon, the Alpharetta mixed-use development set to open late next year.
UPDATE: Per an email, the Buckhead spot is on hold right now. The restaurant "[was] in talks to potentially open a small takeout / late night and al fresco operation in the Buckhead area," but is now "focusing on the recent opening of Caffe Gio, the construction of Piazza San Gennaro and our new venture at Avalon in Alpharetta." Got intel? Let us know.
