A third Atlanta location of Ford Fry’s Tex-Mex restaurant Superica and a second location of bowling alley and restaurant The Painted Pin will open at the 118-acre Revel development in the Gwinnett County city of Duluth, the Atlanta Business Chronicle first reported. Revel is anchored by the Infinite Energy Center arena and theater complex.
Fry opened his first Superica in 2015 at Krog Street Market in the Old Fourth Ward. A year later, the chef opened a location in Buckhead. Two locations of The El Felix, with a similar menu to Superica, are located at Avalon in Alpharetta and Battery Atlanta in Cobb County.
The Painted Pin, owned by Justin Amick and William Stallworth, opened on Miami Circle in Buckhead in 2014, followed by gaming parlor the Painted Duck on Brady Avenue across from Miller Union three years later. Both feature bowling and other games such as bocce ball, ski ball, and darts and a full-service restaurant and bar.
Jinya Ramen Bar, Honeysuckle Gelato, Secreto, a Southern restaurant, The Local Expedition Wood Fired Grill, and Maker’s Coffee & Wine also plan to open at Revel.
In addition to its restaurants, the Revel development will eventually include an 18,000-square-foot food hall, a movie theater, a hotel, 900 residences, a central green space, and offices.
The development is a public-private partnership with the Gwinnett County Convention and Visitors Bureau, similar to the arrangement between the City Springs development and the city of Sandy Springs in Fulton County. City Springs includes a performing arts center anchoring the development as well as retail, restaurants, residences, and Sandy Springs city hall.
