Dolce Italian Now Open in Buckhead Atlanta
Buckhead Atlanta announced today that modern Italian concept, Dolce Italian, is opening its doors in The Shops Buckhead Atlanta. The restaurant features an expansive 50-seat wrap-around outdoor terrace, ideal for al fresco dining, and enjoying the seasonally focused menu. The opening of Dolce, on Friday, September 18, comes on the heels of winning Bravo’s 2015 culinary competition, Best New Restaurant, hosted by Tom Colicchio.
Capturing the hospitable charm of the Italian dining culture, Dolce Italian introduces la dolce vita to Atlanta with its fresh take on classics ranging from handcrafted pastas, to indulgent seafood risotto, meatballs over creamy polenta, and a selection of specialty Neapolitan-style pizzas. Open for dinner with plans to serve lunch in the coming weeks, Dolce will transport guests back in time to the elegance and ease of Fellini’s 1960s Rome. The bright, energetic 150-seat dining room is surrounded by a collection of mid-century modern furniture and art, creating the ultimate communal and convivial dining culture that Buckhead Atlanta is known for.
“Dolce Italian is truly a one-of-a-kind dining experience. Their strong presence and unique approach in the restaurant industry is sure to bring excitement to our already impressive spectrum of choices for food lovers” says Mary Kathryn Wells, Director of Marketing The Shops Buckhead Atlanta.
Under the leadership of Local Managing Partner, David Abes, Executive Chef Paolo Dorigato brings to Dolce’s Atlanta, Miami and Chicago locations a culinary passion inspired by his upbringing in Trentino, Italy. Dorigato joined LDV Hospitality in 2012 after stints at legendary Cipriani Wall Street and Michelin-starred Le Cirque. Dorigato expresses Italian cuisine in its purest form with his simple yet bold, authentic and seasonal menus.
The award-winning restaurant is the second of three LDV Hospitality concepts to open in Atlanta, following Corso which opened in December 2014 and leading American Cut slated to open November 2015.
