Chefs Todd Richards and Josh Lee are planning a new restaurant for the East Lake neighborhood of Atlanta called Lake and Oak.
Lake and Oak will replace Greater Good BBQ in the Hosea + 2nd development, at 2371 Hosea L Williams Drive SE, Richards late last week confirmed in a telephone call with What Now Atlanta (WNA).
Richards said it was too early to discuss specifics of the restaurant, however, because of delays caused by City Hall being closed amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I can’t even get a water permit right now,” Richards told WNA on Friday, asking for a follow-up Wednesday.
Calls by WNA Wednesday went unanswered.
Richards as the Culinary Director for Jackmont Hospitality was planning on opening a new barbecue concept in the former Anderson’s Old Fashioned Bar-B-Que space on Willis Mills Road in the southwest Atlanta neighborhood (SWATS) of Florida Heights.
It’s unclear if that project is moving forward.
