Bubble tea bar Unbelibubble and Tandoori Pizza and Wing Co., from Bhojanic chef Archna Becker, are the final restaurant stalls joining food hall Politan Row at Colony Square, opening this week in Midtown.
A grand opening for the Colony Square food hall kicks off with a ticketed event on Thursday, June 24. Politan Row officially opens to the public on Friday, June 25, with events planned throughout the weekend.
Both Unbelibubble and Tandoori Pizza and Wing Co. open this week, alongside seven previously announced food stalls, including chef Shaun Doty’s Federal Burger; Bun Mi Vietnamese Grill; smoothie and bowl spot YŌM; Hibachi and sushi stall Gekko; Creole-Mexican street taco stall Pretty Little Taco; Neapolitan-style pizzeria Belli; and Caribbean food spot Locale Cafe. The food hall also features a 40-seat bar called Bar Politan offering weekday happy hours, cocktails, and wine.
Owned by Alex Yoon Kim and Mindy Kim, Unbelibubble Tea serves nearly 50 variations of bubble tea on its menu paired with sweets like honey bread or Nutella bread. The couple owns a location on Venture Drive in Duluth and just opened a stall at northwest Atlanta food hall Chattahoochee Food Works earlier this spring.
Owned by Bhojanic chef Archna Becker, Tandoori Pizza and Wing Co. will serve some of the Lambert Drive takeout joint’s most popular items, including margherita and vegetarian naan pizzas; tandoori-marinated wings; chickpea-battered potato wedges; and samosas. Lemonade and chai beverages will also be available, as well as grab-and-go meals. Becker closed Bhojanic last year during the height of the pandemic and shifted its operations to a catering kitchen on Lambert Drive in northeast Atlanta. The location now acts as a catering facility, small Indian market, and as home base for her takeout and delivery restaurant Tandoori Pizza and Wing Co.
Politan Row joins several full-service restaurants now open or opening at Colony Square. Establishment overlooks the Grove at the complex and will eventually offer access to the food hall. Chicago restaurateur Donna Lee opened her first Atlanta location of Brown Bag Seafood Company next to Sukoshi, a fast-casual sushi restaurant from Indigo Road Hospitality (O-Ku). Dine-in theater iPic opened in December. The theater’s restaurant Serena Pastificio opens later this summer, along with the relocated Holeman and Finch Public House, a third location of Persian restaurant Rumi’s Kitchen, a new restaurant from former CEO of Cafe Intermezzo called Saints and Council, and outposts of King of Pops and trendy salad chain Sweetgreen. Most of the new restaurants should open by the end of the summer.
The food hall was first announced in 2017 as part of a multi-million dollar revamp of the 50-year-old Midtown complex. Formerly called Main and Main, it was renamed Politan Row last year and is now run by New Orleans-based food hall operator Politan Group in partnership with Atlanta developer North American Properties.
