Nowak and his team plan on converting the space into an undisclosed concept.

Tom Murphy has sold his Morningside Kitchen restaurantSteve Josovitz of The Shumacher Group. Inc., confirmed in an email to What Now Atlanta (WNA) Tuesday.

Josovitz represented Murphy and his team in the transaction.

A group led by Blaiss Nowak, son of Hal Nowak (owner of Hal's Steakhouse), bought the restaurant, according to Josovitz.

Nowak and his team will convert Morningside Kitchen into an undisclosed concept.

The 4,000-square-foot space, with seating for 100 inside and 50 outside, first opened in March 2016 and reached annual sales "approaching $2,000,000."

Rent on the space "all in" is $13,000 with a ten-year lease and options to renew.

Nowak did not immediately return WNA's request for comment.

  1. I'm actually really surprised by this-- Morningside Kitchen seems to have a steady stream of regulars and consistent (though not spectacular) delicious meals. I wonder what the new concept will be...perhaps they can bring back Rosebud 🙂

  2. We have been 3 times since moving back into Morningside 3 months ago and the food the first two times was decent but uninspiring for sure. The last time we went the food was downright horrible. All three times we were there (and twice was on the weekend) the restaurant was half full, not something you saw when the restaurant was Rosebud.
