The shuttered restaurants could be back in service as early as January 2016.

One month after Here to Serve shuttered all ten of its Atlanta restaurants, founder Tom Catherall hopes to reopen the eateries starting with Noche, according to a report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC).

Cathedral transferred ownership of the restaurant group last year to Leigh Catherall as part of a divorce settlement, but it appears he wants the company back under his leadership in the coming months.

The Noche locations in Virginia-Highland and Vinings would be the first batch to reopen. Catherall is in negotiations with the various landlords.

An insider close to the situation told What Now Atlanta (WNA) that Leigh took a loan with a local bank when she inherited the restaurants, and used assets in the eateries (furniture, equipment, etc.) as collateral. The undisclosed bank has since liquidated most all the assets, leaving all but empty spaces, our insider suggests.

Tom wants to open the Noche brand by January 2016, February at the latest, the chef told the AJC.

  1. I see no evidence that anyone has liquidated anything at the Noche in Virginia-Highland. If you look in the window you see everything just as it was obviously left the night they closed – including dirty glasses still sitting on the bar, liquor on the shelves, and chairs and tables in place.
