Atomic Chicken in New Center is once again shaking things up in March with the addition of a partner restaurant. Temporary pop-up Buffy’s Mexi-Casian Grill is departing this week in expectation of the spring food truck season, making way for a casual Peruvian eatery called Inti, Crain’s reports.
The South American restaurant is being developed by Atomic co-owner Greg Reyner, who owns Cafe Muse in Royal Oak and is partnered with The Royce wine bar’s Ping Ho on a forthcoming restaurant and butcher shop called Marrow in West Village.
Atomic launched the “dual concept” format in mid-January featuring Buffy’s Mexi-Casian (run by another restaurant partner Buffy Campeau) in an effort to rebuild momentum in the business. Co-owner Scott Moloney told Eater at the time, that the partners had discussed transitioning the space into a pop-up restaurant residency for casual restaurant startups. Stay tuned for more updates.
No details were provided on the menu for Inti. However, Eater has reached out for more details. The restaurant is expected to begin popping up alongside Atomic on March 7.
