Gypsy Kitchen, the Spanish concept from Chris Hadermann and JP Piemonte (Big Ketch, Tin Lizzy's Smokebelly BBQ) and sister restaurant to The Southern Gentleman, is now open for business. Located in the Buckhead Atlanta mixed-use development, it focuses on communal dining.
Executive chef Randy Lewis will run a kitchen and staff that will be shared with The Southern Gentleman once it opens. At Gypsy Kitchen, Lewis will turn out a menu that features a list of cheeses and cured meats, "snacks," soups, salads, shared entrees, and larger shared plates. The plates intended to be shared by a full table include:
- Majorcan-style whole branzino with potato, red pepper, spinach, tomato, pine nuts, and sultanas.
- Bone-in beef ribeye with roasted red peppers, feta, capers, and preserved lemons.
- Barrel-cut beef tenderloin with Catalan wilted kale.
- Pork shoulder with sautéed Brussels sprouts and lomo-sherry cream.
Right now, Gypsy Kitchen is open Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Lunch service was originally scheduled to begin on Monday, October 20, but that's been pushed back to a currently undetermined date. Once lunch is up and running, the restaurant will open at 11 a.m. daily.
