Atlas Restaurant Group, the parent company of Harbor East restaurants including Ouzo Bay, Azumi and Loch Bar, has named Salvatore Feli its new chief operating officer.
Feli was most recently vice president of operations for Fig & Olive, a restaurant with eight locations in New York, Washington, D.C., California and Chicago. He previously served as vice president of operations for the ONE Group — whose primary brand is the steakhouse and lounge STK — and general manager for the TAO Group, which has clubs and restaurants in New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Sydney, Australia.
The COO position is new to Atlas Restaurant Group.
Atlas owner Alex Smith said in a statement Feli's experience will help his group grow nationally. In addition to its Baltimore restaurants, Atlas also has an Ouzo Bay location in Boca Raton, Fla.
Locally, Atlas is in the process of renovating and rebranding Fleet Street Kitchen and Ten Ten American Bistro in Harbor East. Fleet Street Kitchen is being transformed to Tagliata, an Italian chop house, which is aiming to open this summer.
