Pano Karatassos’ Lamb Shack Brings the Meat to You in Atlanta

If you're in the Atlanta area and have a craving for some lamb, you don't have to hustle to a Greek restaurant for a specialty becaus Pano Karatassos' Lamb Shack will have it delivered right to your door.

That's part of the growing Ghost Kitchen idea that popped up during the COVID-19 pandemic that saw restaurants that weren't allowed to have indoor diners offering take-out and delivery, which has become a kind of new craze.

He's offering it from his facility in the Buckhead area, specializing in customizable pitas and salads, while also offering a handful of appetizers, entrees and desserts because what's lamb without something to follow it?

Karatassos is head chef of the restaurant Kyma and spun off the Lamb Shack to take advantage of the popularity of ghost kitchens, wrote the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“We were never really doing to-go-style food from Kyma until this past year. We do a tremendous amount now,” he said, adding that, because Kyma is not open for lunch, it offers an opportunity “to open something casual on the Greek side,” using that restaurant’s kitchen during weekday lunch hours.
