The Peach shopping center on Peachtree Street in Buckhead will soon be home to Tamago Ramen Bar, according to a business license issued by City of Atlanta on Monday. The restaurant takes over the space formerly occupied by Southwestern grill Barberitos, which closed in December after five years.
A website for Tamago yields little information about the restaurant, other than it claims to be the “finest traditional Japanese restaurant” in Atlanta and is “coming soon” to the Publix-anchored shopping plaza. A source close to the restaurant says to expect Tamago to open Sunday, August 4.
Eater Atlanta reached out for further details on the menu.
Several ramen restaurants plan to open over the next year around metro Atlanta, including a second location of East Atlanta’s Lifting Noodles Ramen at the Battery’s new Ph’east food hall, Jinya Ramen Bar at Plaza on Ponce, E Ramen in Midtown from the owners of Eight Sushi Lounge, LA import Okiboru in Sandy Springs, and Kin No Tori across from Ponce City Market.
Restaurateur Michael Lo and chef George Yu (Son of a Bear Korean tavern, Ramen Station, Noona) will open Salaryman in the former Mary Hoopa’s House of Fried Chicken in East Lake later this year. While they have yet to confirm whether ramen is planned for the menu, the name “Salaryman” refers to a salaried, white-collar business person in Japan and could indicate a Japanese restaurant is in the works. Lo and Yu recently closed Taiyo Ramen (formerly Makan) in Decatur.
