Nick Leahy dishes on closing Nick’s Westside, turning his attention to Vice Kitchen butcher

If the name Nick Leahy sounds familiar, it’s because he’s done it all. He ran Saltyard, the Brookwood small plate restaurant for many years in the 2010s, opened the now-defunct American pub the Usual in Brookwood, and launched fine dining French spot Aix and accompanying wine bar Tin Tin pre-Covid. In 2020, he transformed Aix and Tin Tin into a more casual restaurant called Nick’s Westside. Last week, Leahy shuttered Nick’s, choosing instead to spend more time with his family and turn his attention to other opportunities—namely, a butcher and retail spot in Johns Creek. Called Vice Kitchen, it is slated to open January 20 on Medlock Bridge Road.

Review: Aix is inspired by the South of France but feels like Westside Atlanta

Rather than trying to procure ingredients indigenous to the South of France, chef Nick Leahy embraces the philosophy of all local, all the time. Expect a great drink with intelligent cocktails and a wine list that offers unusual bottles from southern France.
