Fifth Group Restaurants Announces Alma Cocina Buckhead

Fifth Group Restaurants announced plans for a second Alma Cocina concept at the Terminus development in Buckhead, to be located at what was previously the Bricktop’s space. Slated to open mid-2019, the restaurant and bar will bring Alma Cocina’s authentic Mexican cuisine and lively atmosphere to the burgeoning mixed-use destination, occupying 7,000 square feet at the corner of Peachtree and Piedmont.

Continuing the concept’s approach to contemporary Mexican and Latin American cuisine, Alma Cocina Buckhead will feature local ingredients and Latin American flavors.

“Buckhead has been a major area of growth for Fifth Group in the past several years – we opened South City Kitchen Buckhead in 2016 and Ecco Buckhead is slated to open later this year,” said Fifth Group partner Robby Kukler. “In our 25th year as a restaurant group, we’re excited to share our plans for an expanded presence further on Peachtree Street as we bring Alma Cocina’s energy and flair to the Buckhead neighborhood.”

The announcement of Alma Cocina Buckhead marks a new chapter in the relationship between Fifth Group Restaurants and Terminus building ownership, Cousins Properties.

“We’ve had the pleasure of working with Fifth Group Restaurants to open the original Alma Cocina concept at 191 Peachtree, as well as South City Kitchen Buckhead on Peachtree Road,” said Larry Gellerstedt, chairman and chief executive officer of Cousins Properties. “Fifth Group is a proven operator with an exemplary twenty five-year track record of delivering some of the most successful restaurants in the city, and we’re thrilled to work with their team on this project.”

The Alma Cocina Buckhead announcement comes at the onset of Fifth Group Restaurants’ 25-year anniversary, marking an exciting 2018 including the openings of South City Kitchen Avalon in Alpharetta, Ga. and Ecco Buckhead in the Phipps Plaza area.
