Come April, Atlanta will have one less Houston’s.
The restaurant chain, known for its mood lighting and impeccable service, on March 31 will shutter its Lenox Road location.
A manager for the restaurant, at 3321 Lenox Road NE near Lenox Square Mall, Monday confirmed the news in a telephone interview with What Now Atlanta.
Staff at the soon-to-shutter Houston’s will be relocated to one of the two remaining locations on Peachtree Road and Northside Parkway, according to the manager.
Houston’s on Lenox Road is the oldest location for the chain having debuted in 1977, according to the company’s website.
It’s unclear why the location is closing but a boycott of the restaurant lead by Atlanta rapper T.I. over racism allegations began in October 2017 and just ended over the weekend.
Parent company Hillstone Restaurant Group was not immediately available for comment.
No word on what might open in the restaurant’s place.
