Walker's 1834 To Replace ParQ Near Piedmont Park

The new restaurant, from the owners of The Nook, appears to pay homage to Samuel and Sarah Walker, some of the area's first settlers.

In 1834 Samuel and Sarah Walker spent $450 to purchase the land that would one day become Piedmont Park.

Nearly two centuries later, Walker's 1834, a restaurant bearing the settlers' family name, will open on that very same land.

The restaurant, from the owner's of The Nook at Piedmont Park, will replace the now-shuttered ParQ (formerly Quattro.)

The owners of The Nook, the nearby tavern known for its Totchos and Bloody Marys, last week filed a permit application with The City of Atlanta to significantly re-do the restaurant space at 1071 Piedmont Avenue.

The team in August secured a lease for the Midtown space.

Katherine Drolett, the Managing Partner for The Nook, at the time of the lease told What Now Atlanta "things are just solidifying," and would not provide additional details.

Construction will include both interior and exterior alterations, including new floors, finishes, and fixtures.

Exterior site improvements will include new sidewalks, pavers, an outdoor fireplace, and planters with benches.

An estimated $350,000 will be spent converting the space into Walker's 1834.

The new restaurant will share a building with Willy's Mexicana Grill and the Piedmont Park Community Center. 

Drolett and team were not immediately available for comment.
