The recently-shuttered J&J Bourbon Bar & Grill in Virginia-Highland won’t sit dark for long.
Muzo Saritas, the restauranteur behind concepts like Cuts Steakhouse, Truva Turkish Kitchen, Metro Diner, and the newish-owner of neighboring American Roadhouse, has acquired the space.
Saritas is developing a new concept for the prime corner spot on North Highland Avenue, the restauranteur Thursday told What Now Atlanta (WNA) in a telephone interview.
“I’m going to first gut that space to see what we’re working with,” Saritas said.
Demolition could start as early as February pending the permitting process with the City of Atlanta.
“We don’t know what’s waiting for us until we start demolition.”
There’s no timeline for when the yet-to-be-disclosed concept will open but when it does, “it’s going to be beautiful.”
Saritas is also the owner of two Metro Diner Cafes.
