Restaurants on the move

Expansions, relocations and more

With the development of Krog Street Market and the 280 Elizabeth Street project (rumored apartments and retail), Atlanta restaurants—especially those in Inman Park—are on the move. Read on to see who’s going where, which of your favorite spots are expanding, and more.

Café Agora
The Buckhead location of Café Agora, which has resided at East Paces Ferry Road Northeast since 2005, will close in mid-August. The restaurant will reopen at that time in a larger spot down the street—318 East Paces Ferry Road Northeast, the former home of Rama 5 of Thailand and briefly, Thai Silk. The new location will offer more seating as well as free parking on site. The Midtown location (92 Peachtree Place) will continue operations as usual.

Park’s Edge
Perhaps best known for its brunch and its Kitchen Nightmares makeover, Park’s Edge will cease service at 913 Bernina Avenue on November 30. A banner outside the restaurant promises fans it will reopen, but the new location has yet to be revealed.

Victory Sandwich Bar
The original Victory Sandwich Bar in Inman Park closed after 4th of July celebrations and will be moving to the Park’s Edge building off the Beltline in late 2013, according to the restaurant’s website. The Decatur location, 340 Church Street, which opened earlier this year, and its sister bar Paper Plane, remain open.

The Spotted Trotter
This popular charcuterie shop is opening a second location in the Krog Street Market in Inman Park. Its 800 square feet will be a “full American butchery” and market where owners chef Kevin Ouzts and director of operations Megan Ouzts will continue to sell their meats and cheeses. The Krog Street Market is scheduled to open in winter 2013.

Kevin Rathbun’s original restaurant has been closed since a fire broke out in its kitchen on July 4. According to Kevin’s business partner Cliff Bramble, Rathbun’s will reopen mid-August with all new kitchen equipment and a new look.
