Old Fourth Ward is getting a new Italian restaurant on Friday, July 7.
A Mano, located at the corner of Ralph McGill and Glen Iris, will officially open its doors to the public this Friday evening for dinner.
In 2014, owner George DeMeglio revealed plans to open the restaurant in what was the former “Lantern House” space where the lanterns for the annual BeltLine parade were created. A name change coupled with construction and permitting delays caused A Mano’s opening date to shift several times. As of July 3, DeMeglio told Eater Atlanta the restaurant’s menu had been finalized and he had procured the coveted liquor license from the state.
“A Mano”, which means “by hand” in Italian (and as one word “they love,”) will serve traditional Italian classics and fresh, housemade pasta with Southern influences and ingredients.
Chef Chandler Cottingham told Eater Atlanta in April, “We will have a protein section and an antipasto section that will be some modern interpretations of Italian cooking. You will see a little bit of Southern influence, Southern ingredient influence, mixed with some traditional Italian cooking and Old World techniques.”
Lunch and brunch will be added at a later date.
