White Windmill Bakery and Cafe and J’ouvert Caribbean Kitchen open later this year as part of the new lineup of restaurants at Uptown Atlanta, a 47-acre transit-oriented redevelopment project of the former Lindbergh City Center complex anchored by the Lindbergh MARTA Station.
Located along Main Street in the development, Uptown Atlanta becomes the fifth location of White Windmill in the metro area, and the first location of the Korean bakery and cafe to open in the city. As in Duluth and on Buford Highway, the Atlanta location of White Windmill will also serve coffee and tea drinks, cakes, and Korean baked goods and pastries, including the fish-shaped pastry bungeoppang filled with sweetened red bean paste.
J’ouvert Caribbean Kitchen is the latest restaurant from Tasha Cyril, a co-owner in Belle and Lily’s Caribbean Brunch House, APT. 4B, and Ms. Icey’s Kitchen and Bar. Named for the traditional Caribbean festival known as “break day” or “start of the day”, which takes place the Monday prior to Ash Wednesday, J’ouvert will serve a mix of brunch dishes and Caribbean street foods, like pina colada French toast, curry mushroom roti, passion fruit pancakes, and Trinidadian doubles (flatbread sandwich filled with curried chickpeas). Look for brunch cocktails from the bar at the Main Street restaurant, which will feature live music on the weekends.
The owners behind Birria El Gordo open El Gordo this year at Uptown Atlanta, serving the Marietta restaurant’s popular birria and street tacos paired with tequila cocktails. Bene Korean Steakhouse, from chef Vincent Jung and the owners of Korean barbecue restaurant Miss Gogi, also opens at the complex in 2023.
In addition to a location of 26 Thai Kitchen and Bar and the new restaurants opening at the development, future plans for the Main Street revamp at Uptown Atlanta call for connections to forthcoming portions of the BeltLine and South Fork trails, community gathering spaces for events, and a large park.
