The 675 North Highland mixed-use development, home of Rize Artisan Pizza, has another restaurant officially on board. Co, which is based out Charleston, is taking over the Unit 6000 space and will serve pan-Asian fare.
The word “co” translates to “feast” in Vietnamese. The restaurant originally opened in the Holy City in 2012, and it has since expanded Charlotte, Savannah, and Myrtle Beach. A look at the Charleston location’s menu reveals an expansive list of banh mi, small plates, dumplings, salads, pho, and stir-fry rice and noodle dishes. The bar offers cocktails that appear to have Asian and Southern influences, sake, beer, and wine. There’s boba tea for anyone looking to steer clear of alcohol.
Menus in Charlotte, Savannah, and Myrtle Beach also include sushi and poke bowls. Preview signage at the space advertises “noodles, sushi, bar,” so it looks like Atlanta diners can expect similar dishes.
As for the ambiance: “Co was designed with an urban interpretation of the Japanese Zen architectural philosophy which promotes the ideas of freedom and the essence of living in a sleek and modern setting,” according to the official website.
The forthcoming Atlanta outpost is currently searching for a head chef, and no timeline for opening has been announced. A representative for Co has not responded to requests for comment.
