Take-Out Featuring Special To-Go Menus
Oliva Restaurants is thrilled to announce the reopening of all four of its Atlanta concepts next Monday, May 18. After closing Aziza, Bellina Alimentari, Falafel Nation, and Rina on March 16, each restaurant will begin offering limited menus featuring many local favorites along with a few surprises for curbside pickup and take-out.
“We made the extremely hard decision to remain closed for the last two months to help support the global efforts combatting the pandemic. It is an incredible feeling to reopen our doors to the Atlanta community and have our Oliva family in the restaurants again,” said Tal Baum, proprietor of Oliva Restaurants. “We carefully planned our reopening to ensure a safe environment for team members and customers alike. Our industry is all about creating memorable moments and connecting people. We see the current circumstances as an opportunity to reinvent what we do and engage with our guests on a different level, even from a distance.”
Aziza returns to showcasing the best of Israel by offering both modern and comforting Middle Eastern dishes, as well as a number of multi-course options. The menu will change daily and highlight produce from local farm friends. The popular Full Experience menu will be offered as a multi-course dinner and will include salatim, a family-style entrée, two sides, and dessert. Weekly Shabbat Dinner will be available for preorder for Friday pick up. There are a few other exciting surprises that are in the works and will be announced on social media. Aziza’s full wine list and special to-go cocktails, a delectable pastry basket with Aziza’s famous breads and pastries, as well as several a la carte options, are all at diners fingertips.
