Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall owner Michael Lennox is installing two restaurants in the building that once housed H. Harper Station, the first of which, Muchacho, is scheduled to open on October 16. Dishing out new-wave California cuisine during daytime hours, the counter-service spot takes inspiration from 1970s Venice Beach, according to Lennox.
Muchacho’s design features bright colors and windows that let in lots of natural light. Outside, a brick patio with tropical plants, vintage outdoor furniture, and red-and-white umbrellas will offer al fresco dining and a view of what one day will be part of the Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside trail. Some Reynoldstown residents have objected to the new paint job applied to the building’s exterior, but it’s hard to deny the interiors look real nice.
Muchacho will operate seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Take an early look inside via the photos below.
