2012 October: La Tagliatella to open first U.S. flagship restaurant

ATLANTA, Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — La Tagliatella, the European-based Italian restaurant with more than 130 locations across Spain and France, announced today its first steps in its U.S. expansion plan with the opening of a flagship store in Midtown Atlanta. Showcasing traditional Italian recipes made with the highest quality ingredients, La Tagliatella will open at the Shops at Metropolis in fall 2012.

The restaurant will offer genuine Italian cuisine in a relaxed-yet-distinctive atmosphere, including a center-stage pizza kitchen and a full wine and spirits bar. Guests will savor the genuine tastes of Italy on La Tagliatella’s signature menu featuring traditional dishes including antipasta, insalate, lasagna, artfully crafted combinations of pasta and sauces and more than 20 unique Napoletano-style pizzas.

From Parmigiano-Reggiano DOP to pomodoro, La Tagliatella’s key ingredients are imported from the northern regions of Italy, giving the restaurant’s extensive, approachable menu its authenticity. For more than 20 years, Europeans have loved La Tagliatella for its exceptional dining experience, incomparable ambiance and generous servings perfect for sharing, not found in other Italian restaurants.

“We’re thrilled to bring this popular Italian concept to the United States,” stated Mike Muldoon, president of La Tagliatella, LLC. “Europeans have been enjoying the unique cuisine and warm hospitality of La Tagliatella for the past two decades; now Americans will be able to enjoy them, too.”

Operated in the United States by La Tagliatella, LLC, a division of AmRest Holdings, La Tagliatella first opened in 1991 and successfully grew throughout Spain and France. Setting its sights on expansion throughout the U.S., the brand plans to open across multiple states throughout 2012 and 2013, including locations in Arlington, Va., Atlanta’s Emory Point development and Germantown, Md.

La Tagliatella’s flagship U.S. opening is scheduled to open at Shops at Metropolis at 919 Peachtree St. in Atlanta, Ga., in fall 2012.
