Ackerman Retail’s Daniel Yi represents restaurant in 4,500 SF lease at the redevelopment of the former Lindbergh City Center

ATLANTA, June 8, 2022 – An upscale Korean barbecue concept called Bene Korean Steakhouse is coming to the Uptown Atlanta mixed-use redevelopment. Ackerman Retail Vice President Daniel Yi represented the restaurant in the 4,500-square-foot lease at the 47-acre Uptown Atlanta redevelopment, formerly known as Lindbergh City Center.

Targeting a spring 2023 opening, the new venture is the fourth metro Atlanta restaurant from the restaurant team behind Miss Gogi Korean Barbecue (two locations) and Yuki Izakaya fusion sushi restaurant. Distinguished from traditional Korean barbecue, the restaurant will offer an elevated dining experience in a fun atmosphere.

“This is a great opportunity to launch Bene Korean Steakhouse in a mixed-use development undergoing an exciting transformation,” said Daniel Yi. “The project’s strategic location between Midtown and Buckhead combined with onsite amenities, 1 million square feet of office space and hundreds of adjacent apartment units will help attract a wide customer base.”

Customers can expect an upscale dining experience, with a focus on Korean flavors and premium meats, including filet mignon, N.Y. Strip, porterhouse, ribeye, Wagyu, pork shoulder and pork tomahawk. The menu will also offer spicy prawns, scallops and chicken. On tap for the diverse appetizer menu are items such as fried dumplings, seafood and kimchi pancakes, Bulgogi cheese fries, Korean tacos and sliders, kimchi fried rice, Korean fried chicken wings and a variety of soups. The beverage menu will feature an assortment of Korean spirits to complement the delicious food.

Known as Atlanta’s first transit-oriented development, Uptown Atlanta will bring renovated offices, globally-inspired retail and restaurants, an artist’s hub and expanded public gathering spaces. The project provides direct connectivity to the MARTA Lindbergh rail station and is also situated at the convergence of the Atlanta Beltline, Path400 and South Fork multiuse trails that will eventually intersect at Uptown Atlanta.
