Old Fourth Ward's P'cheen to Shutter, One-Time Woodfire Grill Restaurateur to Open New Spot in Its Place

New, 1 comment

Old Fourth Ward bar P'cheen will close on Sunday, February 9. One-time Woodfire Grill restaurateur Bernard Moussa has bought the space and plans to put a "cocktail-driven restaurant and bar" in its place.

P'cheen posts to Facebook:

While it's with heavy hearts that we share the news P'cheen will be closing its doors, we are excited that a new concept will open in its place – our home for eight wonderful years in the Old Fourth Ward - by a longtime friend and patron of the restaurant. We cannot thank our neighbors, the community, the City of Atlanta, our loyal patrons, and our friends and family enough for their ongoing support and encouragement over the years. We will be focusing our efforts the Edgewood Speakeasy, Pizzeria Vesuvius, and Bone Lick BBQ along with exploring new ventures. In the meantime, we will be hosting a number of closing events at P'cheen through Sunday, February 9th as our way to thank all of you. Please feel free to stop by the restaurant, ask questions, and simply hangout for one last time. Thank you again for believing in us and in the Old Fourth Ward. We look forward to seeing you on Edgewood Avenue and in West Midtown at Bone Lick.

P'cheen chef and co-owner Alex Friedman says that while it's "sad to see [the restaurant] go," the decision made sense business-wise since many new "heavy hitter" restaurants will open in nearby 280 Elizabeth development next year. He plans to focus on Pizzeria Vesuvius and its behind-the-bookshelf speakeasy on Edgewood Avenue. Stay tuned for more information, and do send intel through the tipline.

Update: Moussa is no longer involved with Woodfire Grill. This post has been updated to make that clear.
