BIG ACT TO FOLLOW
Question: Who wants to follow a famous chef in the kitchen? Answer: The owners of Baraonda near the Fox Theater. Costanzo Astarita and Mario Maccarrone are starting a new concept at Brookwood Place in south Buckhead, in space that became available when Wolfgang Puck Express failed. (We have to admit we never actually saw Mr. Puck there.) The new concept, Baroni, is being billed as casual Italian and is set to open in the next few weeks. Sounds good enough to try even without celebrity sightings.
