Most recent tenant, Cafe Sage Hill, abandoned premises during remodel. Landlord forced to re-lease property.

Pig-N-Chik barbecue restaurant signed a lease early this week for space that was most recently Cafe Sage Hill, according to sources involved with the property.

The Owner of Sage Hill closed the restaurant located at 1815 Briarcliff road, for a remodel back in December 2010, with plans to reopen sometime in January.

Multiple signs were posted on the inside of the space announcing the temporary closure and later, a “For Lease” sign graced the front parking lot.

Sources at the property claim the owner walked away from the restaurant during the remodel leaving behind all equipment.

Sage Hill first opened in September 2009 taking over the former Dusty’s Barbecue that closed just five months prior.

Dusty’s was in business for 27 years. Cafe Sage Hill for a year.  How long will Pig-N-Chik last?  Let’s hope the food’s better than the name.

Er – Really What Now Atlanta? You claim to be an industry insider but have never eaten at Pig-n-Chik? Maybe your name should be What the F*** Atlanta? I enjoy reading your updates, but have noticed a bit of a turn toward the bitchy as of late. Remember, critique without substance is little more than an opinion derived from ignorance – (sometimes) entertaining, but ultimately shallow. Try conducting a little research – and by research I mean: take a drive, spend $10 and get some lunch for crying out loud. For the above you get a score of Snarkiness: 8/10… Read more »

Thank God for something that might stand a chance of surviving. I’ve been wanting to go to the Pig-n-Chick but their Peachtree Industrial location looks a little grim for me. I’ve heard the food is good though.

Sometimes the hater-ism devalues your blog’s informative posts, Pig-N-Chik has been around almost 10 years .. What happened to the background research?

Pig n Chick happens to be some of the best bar-b-que in Atlanta!!!!! I agree with the above that you really should have done some research first. We are delighted to have them in our neighborhood. Pig n Chick will undoubtedly last longer than this website. Snap!
