We are thrilled to announce the much-anticipated grand opening of AltaToro, the newest addition to Atlanta's vibrant culinary scene. On June 15, 2023, K5 Hospitality, the renowned restaurant group behind 5Church Midtown, 5Church Buckhead and Virtue Rooftop, will unveil AltaToro, a modern Latin restaurant located at 915 West Peachtree Street in Midtown. With a menu inspired by diverse Latin American flavors and an immersive dining experience, AltaToro is set to become a must-visit destination for food enthusiasts and cultural explorers alike.
At the heart of AltaToro's culinary vision is Executive Chef Gaudalupe "Lupe" Nanbo. Hailing from Guerrero, Mexico, Chef Lupe brings a wealth of experience from working under renowned chefs in New York City and Miami. Together with his talented team, Chef Lupe has crafted a menu that showcases the vibrant flavors of Latin America. Over half of the menu will consist of shareable, tapas-style small plates, while the rest will feature seasonal empanadas, tacos, main dishes, and mouthwatering desserts.
Some standout dishes from the menu include:
Pollo al horno (Mexico): Achiote-marinated chicken, served with cilantro rice, escabeche de verduras, and green cauliflower puree.
Mackerel tiradito (Peru): A refreshing dish with cucumber-ginger-apple emulsion, aji amarillo foam, oranges, fennel, fresno peppers, black olive powder, and dill.

Operating principal Ayman Kamel, a Midtown resident, is passionate about bringing AltaToro to the community. With a desire to create a high-energy, colorful, and vibrant experience, Kamel aims to showcase not only the authentic dishes but also the art, music, and history of Latin America.
