Have you heard the buzz about Aziza? We recently announced Oliva Restaurants is opening its second restaurant in late July. From restaurateur, Tal Baum (of award-winning Italian market and wine bar Bellina Alimentari), the modern Israeli eatery will be a first of its kind in Atlanta!

Meaning ‘happiness’ in Arabic, the restaurant will feature a menu designed around the Israeli tradition of sharing and bringing together patrons for a meal that utilizes all of the senses. The full menu will explore the non-traditional side of Israeli cuisine with modern spins inspired by local ingredients and Chef’s personal take on Israeli dishes.

Designed by Smith Hanes, the 3,938 square foot space will be focused around an open kitchen with a wood-burning oven and comfortable indoor seating. As a bonus, there will be outdoor seating and a neighboring falafel stand, named Falafel Nation, with to-go items including hummus bowls, falafel, pitas, and other vegetarian street food.

Baum plans to continue her expansion in Atlanta with the opening of a third restaurant, Rina, this fall. The Israeli street food concept will open along the Eastside BeltLine trail in the Ford Factory Lofts, across from Ponce City Market.
