New Restaurant Is From Michal Lennox, Owner of Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall


Muchacho opened, Monday, October 16th, in Reynoldstown, and the menu is available here. The restaurant is located at 904 Memorial Drive and neighbors its upcoming sister spot, Golden Eagle, also opening this fall.

Michael Lennox is the founder of Atlanta favorite Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall and is behind both Golden Eagle and Muchacho. Featuring distinct menus and design, the two restaurants are housed in a former rail depot, separated by an interior brick wall.

With a nod to 70’s-era Venice Beach, Muchacho is a casual hangout following a bright color palette with tones of orange, yellow, and white. An expansive brick patio shared by Muchacho and Golden Eagle overlooks the Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside Trail and comes alive with lush, tropical plants, vintage outdoor furniture and red and white umbrellas.

Open seven days per week from 7am to 4pm, counter service at Muchacho offers a menu of breakfast and lunch tacos, toasts, grain bowls, poke and pastries, plus a tight drink list featuring a handful of canned beer and wine, cocktails and housemade agua frescas.

Key members of Muchacho’s team include Taria Camerino as Culinary Director (formerly of Sugar Coated Radical, Ford Fry Restaurants, Resurgens Hospitality and Tate Modern in London); Jason Simpson as Chef de Cuisine (formerly of St. Cecilia and Chef Josiah Citrin’s two-star Michelin restaurant Melisse in L.A.); Nicholas Bown-Crawford as General Manager (formerly of Le Fat, Ton Ton, One Rooster, Concentrics Restaurants and Murphy’s); and Sarah Harlan as Coffee Director (formerly of Condesa Coffee and Everyman Espresso).
