Brookhaven tries to ride the Pink Pony out of town
Less than a year old, the city of Brookhaven opened the doors on its brand-new municipal court—complete with two part-time judges—scarcely a month ago. But the young city has already jumped into a legal battle with a long-standing local business that carries a real risk of costing its taxpayers millions of dollars.
After almost eight years in business, Michel Arnette’s Brookhaven restaurant Haven is at the top of its game—a smooth hangout for an affluent clientele who enjoy a Buckhead-level experience without the party-mentality aggravation. Haven’s habitat, in a pioneering multiuse development with upmarket townhomes and attractive shops that still feel like a microcosm of the good life, turned out to be an excellent business decision for Arnette. The young Buckhead Life Group veteran (Pricci, Veni Vidi Vici, and Buckhead Diner) is always on Haven’s floor, sporting flashy fitted shirts and sincere smiles.
