Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison have been working on a new home for Star Provisions and Bacchanalia since last spring, and the wife-and-husband team has a moving date circled on the calendar. The restaurants will remain open at Westside Provisions District through the end of March, and they will debut at their new Westside digs on Saturday, April 1.
With the impending move, time has run out on Little Bacch. The tiny dining room that opened below Bacchanalia at Westside Provisions District in May 2015 quietly closed at the end of December.
Quatrano, who won the 2003 James Beard Foundation Best Chef: Southeast award for her work at Bacchanalia, and Harrison are moving their restaurants into a brand-new building located at 1460 Ellsworth Industrial Blvd., about a mile away from their current home. Star Provisions will settle into one side of the building, Bacchanalia will claim the other, and a shared kitchen will take up space between the two businesses. Architecture firm Perkins+Will is in charge of the design.
Star Provisions will offer dine-in service and market items at the new space, but its to-go business will remain at Westside Provisions District. Quatrano has said that Little Bacch’s closure will likely result in its menu having some influence on the offerings at the new Bacchanalia. Joe Schafer will continue to run the kitchen as executive chef.
Star Provisions and Bacchanalia have been in their current location since 1999, with the latter, which opened in 1993, previously occupying a space in Buckhead. Quatrano and Harrison also operate Dub's Fish Camp in Ponce City Market and Floataway Cafe in North Druid Hills. The duo closed another Westside Provisions District restaurant, Abattoir, in March 2015. That space was taken over by Ford Fry's Marcel.
