Bellina Alimentari was among the most recently announced food vendors at Ponce City Market, labeled as a gourmet Italian market that will offer "fresh ingredients and slow-cooked foods for consumption on-site and at home." Owner Tal Postelnik Baum hopes to be in business by summer, and she shared some details on the concept with Atlanta Magazine.
The market will have all imported goods from small producers in Italy. We'll have unique pasta sauces, antipasti platters, olive oil, condiments, and, of course, pasta. Our food will be Tuscan-inspired dishes ranging from charcuterie boards to mozzarella that we make daily in house. We'll have fresh pasta dishes made from scratch in the dough room, Panini, meat stews, and homemade desserts.
Bellina also plans to serve wine, Italian cocktails, and local beer in the 4,000-square-foot space, the Central Food Hall's largest. Smith Hanes, who's work includes The Optimist, Watershed on Peachtree, and the forthcoming Le Fat, is in charge of the design.
