Bellsmouth Cafe and 3 Heart Coffee Roastery become the first restaurants to sign on at the historic Pratt Pullman District development taking shape along Rogers Street in Kirkwood, Atlanta Business Chronicle first reported. The cafe and coffee shop, owned by Skip Englebrecht and chef Nhan Le of 8ARM and 3 Heart and artist George Long, open by the end of next year.

Bellsmouth, an all-day cafe, takes over 1,200-square-feet inside one of the 13 historic structures facing Rogers Street on the northwestern end of the development. Le and Englebrecht apparently plan to relocate 3 Heart from its present location at Paris on Ponce to a new building near Bellsmouth on Rogers at the former 27-acre railyard. Once open, it functions mostly as a coffee store and wholesale distribution center. Eater Atlanta reached out to clarify whether the Paris on Ponce location will remain open.

As for Bellsmouth, Le says the cafe focuses on “new American cuisine” and serves breakfast along with soups and sandwiches throughout the day. A coffee counter doubles as a beer and wine bar.

The Pratt Pullman District centers around a collection of television and movie sound stages. However, development owner Adam Rosenfelt of Atomic Entertainment LLC told Eater sister site Curbed Atlanta in June, the sound stages “will ultimately be less than 10 percent of the project—perhaps 20 percent during the first phase.”

A green space, parks, and pedestrian access to the development are all in the works, and Rosenfelt says new restaurants and bars joining the development will likely be announced soon.

Le, who also owns Octopus Bar and So Ba Vietnamese in East Atlanta Village, just opened Memorial Drive takeout joint Supremo Taco with chef Duane Kulers earlier this fall. The chef hopes to finally open his long-delayed seafood and oyster bar Ama at Paris on Ponce next year.
