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.
Castellucci Hospitality Group, the culinary company behind Krog Street Market’s Spanish tapas spot Bar Mercado, is opening its first non-regionally focused restaurant February 26. Recess is a 15-seat Krog Street Market food stall focused on “healthy-ish food satisfying to the soul,” says chef Victoria Shore. “We focus on delicious first at an accessible price point,” she says.
I attended more than a dozen weddings last year. When each couple was inevitably asked how they met, the answer, 50 percent of the time, was Tinder. So, if you’re looking for love this Valentine’s Day, you might just find it there—or at least you can find a hot person to drink with.
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.
Parking in Atlanta can be a nightmare, especially when all you want is a bite to eat. So we've rounded up where you can park for free. No, not complementary valet and no, not in the occasional open space found on a side street after rounding the block three times. These are free lots next to the restaurant itself.

Atlanta is a city that looks outward far more than inward, or even nearby. Outward, say, to the Lower East Side (the General Muir’s pastrami), or to China (Gu’s Dumplings), or to France (Bread & Butterfly’s tender, airy omelets). With the glorious exception of Ryan Smith at Staplehouse, I didn’t find a posse of young, or youngish, chefs all cooking as much for each other as for the public. The priority in Atlanta is less innovation based on local ingredients, as at Staplehouse, than finding a formula that works and then pumping out food to fit it. This makes for generous, untweezed food. But it also means food that, once successful, can become rote.
The bun on that famous H&F cheeseburger? The bread for that banner cheesesteak at Fred's Meat & Bread? You can thank Rob Alexander for both—and a whole lot more.
