Isla & Co. brings Australian café culture to Georgia with the launch of its first Atlanta location. Located in the city’s Buckhead neighborhood, Isla & Co. is an all-day concept with a seasonal menu highlighting the best of coffee, brunch, cocktails and dinner, mixing cuisine inspired by Australian coastal towns by day with the flair and flavors of Southeast Asia and the Mediterranean by night. The restaurant, from NYC-based Parched Hospitality Group, joins Isla & Co. locations in Midtown Manhattan; Williamsburg, NY; Fairfield, CT; Dallas, TX; and an opening coming soon in West Palm Beach, FL.
It’s the newest Isla & Co. location.
“Atlanta has an amazing culinary and bar scene, and we are so excited for Isla & Co. to become a part of that hospitality community and to bring our culture to the city,” says Parched Hospitality Group president and co-owner, David Orr. “We wanted to find a neighborhood that would embrace the Australian experience and where we would feel at home delivering it, and Buckhead gave us just what we were looking for. With a second lease just signed in the Midtown neighborhood, Isla & Co. is looking forward to making our home in Atlanta and growing our presence in the years to come.”
It’s a customer-friendly establishment.
You’ll see that the 2740 sq. ft. interior of Isla & Co. pays homage to the expansive natural environment Australia boasts through lush, greenery-clad walls. Seating up to 110, guests are invited to get comfortable at the green tiled bar, a signature feature of the restaurant, take a seat in the dining room or try al fresco in a cozy outdoor patio space. Great decorations displayed throughout the restaurant and the abundance of natural light, giving an airy atmosphere in an intimate setting.
Coffee and cocktails.
Led by Parched Hospitality Group executive chef Matthew Foley, formerly of New York’s two Michelin-starred Marea, along with local Atlanta chef Kate Huang, Isla & Co.’s menu encapsulates Australian-style cooking with a focus on quality, presentation and seasonally charged ingredients. Excellent cuts of meat paired with bright flavors are offered alongside vegetable-focused dishes filled with fresh, local produce, and a robust beverage menu compliments any meal to celebrate the all-day dining experience. As another nod to Australian café culture, a carefully curated specialty coffee program features PHG coffee brand, Hole In The Wall, with two signature house blends originating from the Americas and Ethiopia perfect for espresso and drip extraction.
