Dave Green and Tom Murphy put their popular Vinings Jubliee restaurant Paces and Vine up for sale at the end of December. Listed by Steve Josovitz of the Shumacher Group, the restaurant and bar remain open for business.
But, a representative for Paces and Vine tells Eater the owners aren’t completely set on selling the restaurant and are simply “feeling out the market” in order to “evaluate their next steps,” which could include finding a larger, multi-purpose space for the restaurant or a similar establishment.
Murphy is also behind Murphy’s restaurant in Virginia-Highland, while Green and partner David Lester own the Select in Sandy Springs and plan to open a yet-named restaurant and bar at the Works in Underwood Hills later this summer.
“Because their growth is focused on larger dining venues with multiple components, like The Select and their new restaurant and event space opening at The Works this summer, which features an expansive restaurant and rooftop bar, they are looking for other spaces that have a 7500-9000 square feet footprint to accommodate these concepts,” the representative says.
Eater reached back out for more details on the future plans for Paces and Vines.
Murphy and Green first opened Paces and Vine in 2014, tapping chef Ian Winslade to run the kitchen at the neighborhood restaurant with its sprawling front patio. The pandemic led Murphy to refocus on his Virginia-Highland namesake restaurant. Winslade has since gone on to open his own restaurants, Mission and Market in Buckhead and Italian restaurant and market Tre Vele in Sandy Springs.
Green’s latest restaurant at the Works, combining a tasting menu with tapas-style dining, will be located in the Makers building and feature a large patio opening onto the property’s quarter-mile linear park, a rooftop bar, and a walk-up window serving to-go drinks.
Paces and Vine open for dinner and drinks Tuesday - Sunday, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Patio seating available.
