[EXCLUSIVE] Velvet Taco Joins The Interlock in West Midtown

Dallas, Texas-based Velvet Taco plans open their second  Atlanta area location next year at The Interlock in West Midtown.  The new restaurant will open as part of the mixed-use development that is currently under construction at the corner of 14th Street and Howell Mill Road across from Westside Provisions District.

The new location will join the company's first outpost at Buckhead Market Place on West Paces Ferry Road in Buckhead.  The Buckhead location, which replaced a portion of The North Face [the retailer relocated to Lenox Square], is currently under construction and is expected to open in mid-July, according to sources close to the restaurant. 

Velvet Taco - which proudly promotes its restaurants as offering "tacos without borders" - features a wide variety of taco options including the Nashville hot tofu, Korean pork, Kobe bacon burger, shrimp & grits and the chicken & waffle, a brunch favorite but served all day.  

The West Midtown Velvet Taco will be 2,666 square feet and be situated along Howell Mill Road, across the street from YEAH! Burger.  The Velvet Taco at The Interlock will be slightly larger than the Buckhead outpost, which according to the siteplan for the center measures 2,514 square feet.  

Clay Dover, President of Velvet Taco, told ToNeTo Atlanta in April that the company is bullish on the Atlanta market and sees opportunity for as many as eight Velvet Taco restaurants in metro Atlanta in the years to come.    

At The Interlock, Velvet Taco joins previously announced eateries Saint-Germain Bakery and Curry Up Now, a new-to-market quick-serve Indian eatery.  A gazillionth WeWork co-working facility is also planned for the project.

In addition to the WeWork and restaurant offerings, 350 apartment units, 70 for sale single family housing units, and a 160 room boutique hotel are also planned 

Leasing documents for the project indicate that a new branch of Chase Bank will open alongside Velvet Taco on the front side of the building, too.  Sources also confirm that Eight Sushi Lounge will open a mini location in a 650 square foot freestanding structure within the parking garage.  

Restaurants and retailers in the project are expected to begin to open in the third quarter of 2020 followed by the hotel and other tenants in the fourth quarter.
