Feeding employees and selling toilet paper: How one Atlanta restaurant group is trying to survive COVID-19
With thousands of dollars worth of produce and meats in their fridges, Double Zero and other Castellucci Hospitality Group restaurants were quickly trying to use up their supplies and hand out free meals to their hourly employees—who will likely be without work for the foreseeable future.
Christiane Lauterbach is embarrassed by the amount of food she sees sent back to the kitchen. "In some respects, I’m still not a wasteful American. I eat the tails of my shrimp. I chew on chicken bones until they are perfectly clean of cartilage. And still, the amount of food I leave behind in restaurants makes me feel like a criminal. I secretly hope that some rodent will enjoy whatever ends up in the dumpster."

Castellucci Hospitality Group, the team behind the Iberian Pig, Double Zero, and Cooks & Soldiers, is opening a food stall called Recess at Krog Street Market in late fall.
The family behind Atlanta's Castellucci Hospitality Group (Cooks & Soldiers, Iberian Pig) has been in the restaurant business for a century. Father and son Federico W. Castellucci II and Federico W. Castellucci III share the lessons they've learned from Dad.
As the family behind the Iberian Pig and Cooks & Soldiers, the Castelluccis certainly know their Spanish cuisine. So it's only natural that their new restaurant, Bar Mercado, focuses on tapas from multiple regions of Spain.
