A popular restaurant that specializes in bowls and wraps will open soon.

According to a spokesperson, gusto! will open at the North Decatur Square development in late September. The address for the greater Decatur location is 1545 Church Street, Suite 310, Decatur, GA 30033. That development includes the Whole Foods 365 store. gusto! was first announced as a tenant in 2017.

“One of the main reasons we selected this location is its proximity to DeKalb Medical,” founder Nate Hybl  said in the press release. “We have been very fortunate to serve many Piedmont Hospital and Shepherd Center staff members and patients with our Peachtree location and are looking forward to providing a fast and better-for-you dining option for the neighboring medical community in Decatur.”

The restaurant will also have a “Medical Monday” special for healthcare professionals. People who show their medical badges can get a “buy one, get one free” deal on meals, the company says.

The company said it is also opening a location in West Midtown.

Here’s more information about the Decatur location:

 

 

While maintaining the modern industrial design that gusto! has become known for, Hybl collaborated with designer Lindsay Denman to warm up the2,400-square-foot-space with custom wood booths and tabletops along with a wood feature wall illuminated by inspirational signage. Chairs and stools from Grand Rapids Chair Co. are custom-coated in gusto! gold and brighten the space along with industrial Barn Light fixtures. Staying true to the brand’s “made in ATL” roots, gusto! Decatur is working with B-10 Union furniture collective to detail and fabricate the restaurant’s wood and metalwork. As with gusto!’s first two locations, a white and signature sunshine yellow color palette contributes to the bright, cheerful ambiance.

“We want to create a space that is as much of a draw as the food – carefully crafted and detail-focused in a way that becomes a part of guests’ daily lives,” says Denman.

The restaurant’s team greets guests by asking “what’s your gusto?” Inspired by both international cuisine and familiar American flavors, these  gustos – like sweet soy sriracha, chile sesame bbq or tahini cucumber feta – can be hot, bright, earthy or sweet. They all bring the food to life with freshness and flavor, not fat. The next steps are as simple as picking a style (mixed greens, Jasmine brown rice, half greens and half rice or a flatbread wrap) and adding a protein (chicken, shrimp or portabella mushroom). The menu at gusto! features all-natural, antibiotic-free chicken and, whenever possible, local and organic ingredients.

gusto! Decatur is also going to offer catering services and delivery via Uber Eats and Postmates, allowing for even more convenient dining options for guests and extended reach of the restaurant’s
fast casual menu items.
