Lazy Betty, the forthcoming restaurant from Executive Chef Ron Hsu and Chef de Cuisine/Partner Aaron Phillips, is no longer opening in Poncey-Highland.
Instead, Hsu and Phillips will bring the restaurant to 1530 DeKalb Avenue NE in early 2019, in the space formerly occupied by Radial Cafe.
The news was announced Wednesday in a press release.
Chef Ron’s siblings, Howard and Anita Hsu, who operate Sweet Auburn BBQ in Poncey-Highland, and are also partners in the restaurant.
Local architecture firm Praxis3 is designing Lazy Betty with an “industrial chic aesthetic,” according to the release.
“Natural light will illuminate soft, muted colors of the interior, which stand in contrast to exposed brick and concrete flooring.”
Seating for 28 will be inside the main dining room and another 18 seats will be in a lounge area with a chef’s counter.
Lazy Betty will also open an outdoor patio seating 25 in the spring.
A tasting menu and à la carte options will feature seasonal fare.
In anticipation of the opening, Lazy Betty hosted supper club dinners throughout the summer to offer guests a preview of the cuisine and experience.
