Red Pebbles Hospitality opens an Atlanta location of its Nashville restaurant Adele’s beside Biggerstaff Brewing Co. and Staplehouse Market in late-March, taking over space once home to a 1930s-era garage on Edgewood Avenue. Adele’s joins forthcoming steak and seafood bar Socu Prime, owned by chef Erica Barrett, opening next door later this year.
The Nashville-based restaurant group, which is also behind the 404 Kitchen, Emmy Squared, and Gertie’s Whiskey Bar, announced plans last year to open a restaurant “reminiscent of Adele’s” in the Old Fourth Ward, but declined to provide further details at the time on just which of its many restaurants would open on Edgewood.
Design plans for the Atlanta location call for an airy, modern dining room and bar with a private event space and patio seating out front, similar in design to the Nashville restaurant.
As in Nashville, the menu at Adele’s in Atlanta centers on “California cuisine” and “rustic” Italian dishes prepared using wood-burning ovens and grills and produce and meats from local farms. The menu features everything from snacks, like marinated olives with focaccia, bruschetta, and salmon belly carpaccio, to shared sides of shishito peppers and rosemary potatoes and large entrees, including smoked duck, roast chicken served with salsa verde, and gnocchi paired with in-season vegetables.
Look for wines by the bottle and by the glass, beers on draft, and cocktails, along with a sizable whiskey collection, from the bar.
