[UPDATE] Fork U Planning to Open Spanish Tapas Eatery Silla Del Toro This Month in Marietta

The owners of Taqueria Tsunami, Stockyard Burgers & Bones, and Forno Vero, plan to open a new concept later this fall in a familiar Marietta Square location.  Silla Del Toro, a Spanish style tapas restaurant and bar, will open at 30 South Park Square on the square in Marietta.  The new restaurant  replaces Pressed Panini Bar which closed this February after a little less than six years in business.  Pressed, like the aforementioned other three concepts, was owned and operated by local restaurant group Fork U Concepts Inc.
Ethan Lane, who most recently was Beverage Director and General Manager at Forno Vero which opened earlier this March in the Marietta Square Market, is serving as General Manager at Silla Del Toro, which roughly translates to "chair of the bull" in Spanish.  Before joining Fork U, Lane spent two years as assistant bar manager at Hugh Acheson's popular Midtown eatery Empire State South. 

Comparing the menus, it's fair to say that Scott Kinsey and his team at Fork U was at least inspired by the menu and concept of Castellucci Hospitality Group's The Iberian Pig.  The Spanish style tapas restaurant recently celebrated its 10th year in downtown Decatur and earlier this year opened a second location at Hanover Buckhead Village in Buckhead.

As of now, the plan is for Stilla Del Toro to open the week of September 15.

When it opens, Silla Del Toro joins a Fork U family of restaurants that today includes eight Taqueria Tsunami locations with a ninth opening soon at Madison Yards in Reynoldstown, three Stockyard Burgers locations in East Cobb, Marietta and Vinings, and the single Forno Vero.

This is an aside, but I hate the Fork U name. I'm not uptight or easily offended, but what an unnecessarily antagonistic, obnoxious name. And it's for a hospitality group!

Can’t wait for this to open! Marietta Square needs a few more “upscale” bars/restaurants with this type of vibe. Been peeking inside and it looks very cool. Love a restaurant that has ample bar seating.
