Justin Amick, who once served as the general manager of Inman Park’s now-closed Brasserie and Neighborhood Cafe at Parish when it was simply “Parish,” is now opening his own business called Painted Park in the 240 North Highland Avenue NE building along with partner William Stallworth.
Painted Park will be part of Painted Hospitality Group, Eater Atlanta Friday first reported, which includes The Painted Pin restaurant and bowling alley, and The Painted Duck at the Stockyards development, an old-school gaming parlor and restaurant combined into one facility.
“Unfortunately, [this] was leaked by a tipster [to Eater],” Amick told What Now Atlanta. “[I am] unable to share any details at this time, [but will] hopefully be reaching back out very soon… once I officially announce details of the concept.”
The previous restaurant at the site, which had operated for 13 years before its closure this January, was owned by Concentrics Restaurants — a group founded by Bob Amick, Justin Amick’s father. The new establishment will reportedly serve food and drinks in an outdoor seating arrangement alongside a grassy area featuring lawn games along the Eastside Beltline.
Parish was one of our favorite date night places. We’d sit at the bar and talk trash with the
bartenders etc. Since we could walk there, we were kinda regulars and always got a warm reception.
It seems like when Barcelona et al opened up down the street, Parish lost a good bit of business. So sad to see it go…
Hopefully they won’t change the upstairs bar/dining room– it’s absolutely beautiful as it is! Since it’s staying in the family, maybe they’ll keep the integrity of the interior.
Went there for scone and coffee before there was a belt line in their backyard. Great building.
