A North Carolina restaurant group specializing in Greek concepts will enter the Atlanta market by opening its Kipos Hellenic Kitchen in The Shops Buckhead Atlanta in the space formerly occupied by American Food and Beverage.

The Giorgios Group, headed by Giorgios Bakatsias, will open the taverna in September. The company’s entrance into the market is a potential challenge to Pano Karatassos’ Buckhead Life Restaurant Group’s upscale Greek concept “Kyma,” which is on Piedmont Road in the same area of Buckhead.
