Colony Square celebrated the opening of The Grove, an urban park along 14th Street, as part of its ongoing renovation.

North American Properties has announced that Rumi’s Kitchen, Sukoshi and Freshii will join the culinary lineup at the under-renovation Colony Square in Midtown.

“Between the restaurants, luxury dine-in theater and expertly curated food hall, Colony Square will be the destination for great food, lively entertainment and community,” said Mark Toro, managing partner of NAP, in a press release. “We’re looking forward to welcoming each of these exceptional dining concepts to Colony Square and are excited to be one step closer to delivering Midtown’s new center of gravity.”

Rumi’s Kitchen, the Atlanta-based Persian restaurant by renowned Chef Ali Mesghali, will open its first Intown flagship location at the corner of 14th and Peachtree Streets in a new upscale, custom designed space. The buildout for the  4,833-square-foot space and 1,500 square-foot patio will begin in December with the restaurant set to open in May 2020. The Johnson Studio at Cooper Carry is leading the design efforts.

James Beard Award-nominated restaurateur Steve Palmer and the Indigo Road team are bringing Sukoshi, an on-the-go, fine casual dining featuring sushi, later this year. The Indigo Road team is well-known for concepts such as Oak Steakhouse and Colletta at Avalon in Alpharetta, along with Donetto and O-Ku on Atlanta’s Westside.The 2,000 square-foot space will be designed by Powell Architects.

Located in Building 100 across from the new Starbucks, fast-casual Freshii will be owned and operated by Atlanta-native Dustin Saboorian, who owns Graveyard Tavern in East Atlanta Village. The menu will include bowls, burritos, salads, wraps, soups, smoothies and juices.

Earlier this month, Colony Square celebrated the grand opening of The Grove, an urban park on 14th Street, the return of Chick-fil-A, and the new Building 400 Lobby.
