Ribs Etc. in North Buckhead to become Mirko Pasta
Chef Mirko Di Giacomantonio, founder of FIGO Pasta, will soon be converting the Ribs Etc. building on Roswell Road into Mirko Pasta.
Di Giacomantonio opened his first Mirko Pasta three years ago in Watkinsville and now has seven locations throughout Georgia. Mirko creates authentic, made-from-scratch Italian cuisine prepared by ‘culinary missionaries’ in a friendly, casual cafe atmosphere. The menu incorporates seasonal vegetables and fruits, and changes up some of the sauces to offer their customers some lighter choices in the spring and summer, and heartier choices during the cooler months. From the bread to the sauces, their food is made from scratch daily, using only the freshest and most authentic ingredients available. Desserts are also offered along with a selection of coffee, beer and a wide range of wines from around the world.
Mirko and his partner, Archie Crenshaw, are aspiring to open an additional 100 restaurants over the next seven years in the Southeast as they begin franchising the choose-your-own pasta and sauce concept. The North Buckhead Mirko Pasta will be located at 4233 Roswell Road, adjacent to Chastain Square shopping center.
