Morningside-Lenox Park’s Lazy Llama Cantina has closed after 18 months in business at 1551 Piedmont Road, and the free-standing Mexican joint is being replaced by Mediterranean seafood restaurant, Octopus.
Steve Josovitz of The Shumacher Group tells What Now Atlanta that Octopus will be a full-service, upscale-casual Mediterranean bar and restaurant. At 3,500 square feet, the space boasts a patio that seats nearly 75 people, a 12-seat bar, and a dining room that seats 125 people.
What Now Atlanta reached out to Lazy Llama Cantina owner Sean Yeremyan for further details about who the new owners might be, but the restaurant owner declined to comment. What Now Atlanta was able to make contact with a source at the space who was preparing the restaurant for its new owners, but was also unable to provide further details.
No word yet on when Octopus plans to open, or what, specifically, the menu will look like, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed for fresh seafood and some classic Mediterranean spreads we can slather all over freshly-baked pita bread. Stay tuned for an update.
