Marc Taft and Mike Latham to open Castle restaurant and bar in October

The Castle, a historic Midtown building dating back to 1910, will be renovated and reopened as a restaurant, bar, event space, and luxury suites in the next year. Marc Taft, chef and owner of Chicken and the Egg, has partnered with architect and industrial artist Mike Latham to transform the 12,000-square-foot space on 15th Street across from the Woodruff Arts Center into a white tablecloth, Southern-inspired restaurant with a bar, a separate late-night bar, plus four or five hotel suites with spa-like bathrooms. The restaurant and bars will open in October, with the event space to follow in the spring of 2014, and the suites shortly thereafter.

The combined affiliation, called Legendary Partners, won the contract over major national companies, including Wolfgang Puck. (It was rumored that local Fifth Group restaurants was also in the running.)
