Restaurateur Justin Lim is bringing not one, but two new restaurants to the Aramore condo complex on Peachtree Road in Buckhead this year. Lim just signed a lease to take over the former Restaurant Eugene space to open a Korean steakhouse there, according to documents provided by Steve Josovitz of the Shumacher Group.
Not much else is known about the restaurant, other than it’s billed as an “upscale Korean infused A5 Waygu Steakhouse with some twists never before seen in Atlanta.”
Eater reached out to Lim for more details on the Korean steakhouse.
In March, Lim announced intentions to open a second location of Okiboru Tsukemen and Ramen in the former Karma Farm space at the Aramore, once home to restaurant Holeman and Finch Public House, adjacent to the former Restaurant Eugene. Both Holeman and Finch and Restaurant Eugene are owned by chef Linton Hopkins and Gina Hopkins. Okiboru specializes in tsukemen or “dipping ramen”, where noodles come served in a separate bowl and are then dunked into hot broth before eating.
The Hopkins closed fine dining institution Restaurant Eugene in 2019 after 15 years in Buckhead and announced that Holeman and Finch would relocate to Colony Square in Midtown.
The couple had plans to replace Restaurant Eugene at the Aramore with a much more casual, a la carte restaurant called Eugene and Elizabeth’s. It’s unclear if there are plans to open Eugene and Elizabeth’s elsewhere. Holeman and Finch should open later this year at Colony Square.
