The family behind Cameli's Pizza has opened a new restaurant in the rooftop space above its Little Five Points outpost. Arcadia is a "retro-influenced night spot," according to a press release, with chef Sarah Case turning out "throwback favorites" in the kitchen.
The restaurant serves simple fare, including country-fried pork chops, chicken pot pie, and sloppy Joes for dinner, as well as biscuits and gravy, pimento cheese grits, and griddle-fried Monte Cristo sandwiches for brunch. Arcadia seems to be leaning in hard to a nothing-fancy attitude: "You won't have to Google anything on the Arcadia menu to find out what it is," owner George Cameli said in a prepared statement.
Curiously, the release calls Arcadia's 337 Moreland Avenue NE address Midtown, which it most certainly is not. The restaurant's atmosphere is meant to transport guests "back to a time when LPs and turntables ruled, spinning old-school ‘70s vinyl." An in-house record collection includes David Bowie, Iggy Pop, and The Ramones, "among many others of that period."
Specific hours weren't immediately available, but Arcadia claims to be open for dinner, late-night, and weekend brunch. Take a look at the menus for the yesteryear-inspired restaurant below.
