Two new Atlanta restaurants are set to open soon in the Home Park neighborhood near Georgia Tech on Atlanta’s west side and in Inman Park, just east of the city. Here’s what to know about each right now.

HOME PARK: Giovanni di Palma expands his Home Park Antico pizza empire in the “Little Italia” food village with Gio’s Sicilian, according to Atlanta Magazine. The Sicilian pizza and slice shop apparently opens this weekend along Hemphill Avenue in the back of Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano. Di Palma plans to do mainly takeout orders and deliveries via DoorDash there. Sicilian-style pies are typically rectangular in shape, include a thick, focaccia-like crust, and are loaded with oregano and tomatoes. For now, Gio’s Sicilian only serves 50 to 75 pies a day, which come in whole, half, and slices and mini pies called “pizzettas”. [ATLMag]

INMAN PARK: A Middle Eastern restaurant called Delbar replaces the short-lived Daily Tavern on Inman Village Parkway in May, What Now Atlanta reports. The Daily Tavern, which replaced Indian restaurant Amara, opened last October and closed in February. Delbar is owned by former Rumi’s Kitchen manager Fares Kargar. Little is known about the restaurant, but the menu focuses on Persian, Turkish, and Israeli dishes. [WNA]
