The Castellucci Hospitality Group (Double Zero, Cooks & Soldiers, Bar Mercado, Recess, Sugo) opens a second location of Iberian Pig on Monday, May 13. The 4,500-square-foot Buckhead sibling to the Decatur Spanish tapas restaurant resides at the 22-story Hanover Buckhead Village on Roswell Road.
Executive chef John Castellucci leads the kitchen in Buckhead.
Iberian Pig-Buckhead includes a similar menu to Decatur, focusing on tapas like bacon wrapped Medjool dates and pulpo a la plancha (cast iron seared octopus), charcuterie, and Spanish cheeses.
Elizabeth Ingram Studio designed the interiors for the two-story restaurant. Ingram is responsible for the designs of several of Ford Fry’s restaurants, Banshee in East Atlanta Village, and 2017 Eater Award winner Golden Eagle in Reynoldstown.
The first floor banquette seating and large bar overlook Roswell Road and Irby Avenue, with the mezzanine serving as the main dining room for the restaurant.
“We had been looking for the right fit for a second Iberian Pig location for some time,” owner Fred Castellucci says in a prepared statement. “Looking at Decatur and Buckhead, these two parts of town are very different, but both have great energy for dining, and we look to contribute to those dining communities in meaningful ways.”
Take a look at the menu:
The original Iberian Pig opened on Decatur Square in 2009. Beyond its tapas and charcuterie menus, the restaurant is widely known for its considerable selection of Spanish wines and impressive sherry list as well as the “Iberian Old Fashioned” made with bacon-infused rye whiskey and maple syrup.
