Elizabeth Street Kitchen & Bakery, a shared commercial kitchen space, is closing March 30, 2022, displacing several tenants including Hutchinson’s Finest Biscuits, Todd Tharp, the owner of Hutchinson’s, told What Now Atlanta Tuesday.
The property, at 337 Elizabeth St., was sold, Tharp said, and the tenants have been given the notice to vacate.
“The building that houses the Elizabeth Street Kitchen & Bakery (home to Queen of Cream, Sarah Dodge, Graze Atlanta, and Hutchinson’s) was recently sold and we were notified that March 30 would be the kitchen’s last day of operation,” Tharp wrote in an email. “[Elizabeth Street Kitchen & Bakery] was really fantastic for us because of the location and the use of the pickup window that opened onto the sidewalk.”
Tharp is scouting Inman Park, Candler Park, and the Old Fourth Ward area, with plans to open in a new home sometime in April 2022, the restauranteur said. March 27 will be the last day for Hutchinson’s Finest Biscuits in the Elizabeth Street Kitchen.
Hutchinson’s Finest is a small batch biscuit business started in 2018, offering fresh, from scratch buttermilk biscuits Sunday mornings.
“We do all of our baking early Sunday mornings so we can deliver the freshest biscuits possible,” Tharp writes on the company’s website. “Every biscuit is made by hand in small batches much like many of our mothers and grandmothers made many years ago. Like our biscuits, our jams and cheese spreads are made weekly and we change the flavors every month. We always try to have some classic jams available like strawberry or pear preserves, but some months you may find homemade mascarpone with blueberries or lemon curd with sugared raspberries on the menu. We like to change things up.”
It’s currently unclear who acquired the property or what their plans are for the space and reps for Elizabeth Street Kitchen & Bakery did not immediately comment Tuesday.
