gusto!, a quick-casual restaurant opened in August in Parkaire Landing Shopping Center in East Cobb. Former NFL quarterback Nate Hybl started gusto! in Atlanta as a means of providing fast, healthy food. Nate Hybl was raised in small-town South Georgia — Hazlehurst, to be exact — but when his skills on the football field took him around the world, he developed some international tastes.
gusto! features a menu of assorted bowls, salads and wraps, each served with your choice of protein and finished with your favorite “gusto” or flavor (sauce). To customize an entrée, guests start by selecting a base of crisp mixed greens, seasoned brown rice, half and half (rice and greens) or a steamed flatbread wrap, then picking a protein such as grilled and spicy chicken, grilled umami tofu, grilled shrimp or baby bella mushrooms. To bring the bowl or wrap to life, guests choose a gusto, or signature flavor profile, like chili sesame BBQ, tzatziki lemon artichoke or sweet soy sriracha. gusto!’s beloved house-made sweet potato chips, which are gluten free and vegetarian, come with every dish.
“This version of gusto! will be a big part of our future,” Hybl said. “The drive-thru option extends our product differentiation, and we’re hoping that moms and dads are going to appreciate that convenience!” (Now What)
gusto! is open from 11am – 9pm in East Cobb on Johnson Ferry Road. The brightly lit interior and outside eating area is perfect for catching lunch, dinner or a snack. Go for the gusto!
