Double Zero Napoletana, Castellucci Hospitality Group's Sandy Springs restaurant, is packing up and hitting the road. The company has sold the building at 5825 Roswell Road, reports the Atlanta Business Chronicle, and Double Zero will take over the former Ink & Elm space at 1577 North Decatur Road in Emory Village. Ink & Elm shuttered in May.
Pasta and pizza will continue to be a focus, but once the move is made, chef Edwin Molina will revamp the menu to include more small plates and large, sharable dishes. That puts the concept more in line with the restaurant group's other ITP ventures, Cooks & Soldiers and The Iberian Pig. After Double Zero's relocation, Sugo, in Johns Creek, will be the Castelluccis' only OTP eatery. The Iberian Pig is in Decatur, and Cooks & Soldiers, Eater Atlanta's 2015 Restaurant of the Year, takes up residence in Westside.
"We're excited to announce the relocation of Double Zero to Emory Village," restaurant group president Federico Castellucci III said in a prepared statement. "We've enjoyed serving the Sandy Springs community over the past five years and want to thank our patrons for helping us succeed since day one. The Roswell Road property has been sold and we're thrilled to take this opportunity to create a new menu, look, and feel for our brand."
Local firm ai3 is in charge of designing the Emory Village restaurant, which should open in June. Double Zero originally opened in Sandy Springs in 2011.
