Spectacular One-of-a-kind 6-family apartment building in the incredibly popular and high-end “Moorlands” part of Clayton. This building has so much going for it that it will be hard to describe it in this paragraph. Huge three-bedroom, two full bath units, several of which have a full-sized washer and dryer. Many, many updates! The roof is in great shape. All new windows and brand-new electric. Copper supply lines. Freshly tuck-pointed. Some of the units rents have achieved $2395 per month, and that is where they all should be by the next season turnover, maybe even higher. This is a Five Star Condo Grade Apartment building. Being offered at a true 5.7% Cap Rate on current rents with plenty of room for rental increases! Must provide proof of funds or pre-approval prior to the release of any financial information or scheduling of any showing.

The owner of The Restaurant at the Cheshire just announced this week that the establishment will close after business on New Year’s Eve to begin a renovation of its interior. Not only is the interior going to be overhauled, but the concept of the restaurant is getting a facelift as well! The new space, set to open early next year, is now going to feature small plates, a raw bar, and craft cocktails. A new name for the restaurant has not been disclosed.
Steve O’Loughlin, president of Lodging Hospitality Management who owns the restaurant, points to the hotel’s Italian gastropub Basso as the direction he is going as far as the energy in the space. O’Loughlin’s goal is to make the atmosphere more approachable. Among those assisting O’Loughlin in the renovation and rebranding will be Concentrics Restaurants, an Atlanta based firm, as well as Restaurant at the Cheshire executive chef Rex Hale.
Renovation work begins January 3rd and Lodging Hospitality Management aims to reopen by Valentines Day.

Ben Poremba, chef-owner of Elaia, Olio and Old Standard Fried Chicken, has plans to add an Italian restaurant to his collection right here in Clayton. Poremba will open early in 2016 on the first floor of the Clayton on the Park apartment building located at 8025 Bonhomme Avenue in Clayton.
The dinner menu is slated to be recognizably Italian, with a French twist added when it comes to the sauces. There will still be the classic pasta dishes, but there will also be a focus on beef and grilled meat. Poremba said there will be “sort of a bridge between American steak house (far), for lack of a better word, and classic Italian. You’ll get a protein with a sauce and share side dishes family-style.” Parigi will also have more casual menu options for a breakfast and lunch menu.
Poremba’s chef de cuisine at his current restaurant Elaia will move to Parigi and serve as the head chef. Poremba has also hired Aaron Sherman, who recently left a restaurant group on Chicago, to serve as the wine director for his restaurants.
This is the first of Poremba’s restaurants that will be in Clayton. He says he was drawn to the area as it is a center for business and draws a lot of traffic. He is hoping for a November opening of his new restaurant, and I can’t wait to try it out!

With an average yelp score of 4.5/5, I am surprised to see it go. According to the owner, business was just not doing as well as it needed to be. Pizzino posted the following on their Facebook page Sunday morning:
Many loyal customers left heartfelt comments about how sad they were to see it go. Jim Zimmerman was quoted saying, “While we have not been able to hit the revenue targets needed to continue operations we felt good pursuing this dream and we hope you enjoyed your dining experiences at Pizzino.”
Although I am sad to see it go, I hope that something else can take its spot!
Many who frequent Clayton can probably think of a few other businesses that met the same fate. What are some Clayton restaurants that you miss? Leave a comment below!
Do you guys remember our post from last week about the beautiful new development project that has been proposed in Clayton? Well, it seems that the new development that is in the works for 8125 Forsyth is just the first stage in a new hotel, retail, residential, and entertainment project proposed for downtown Clayton. The final project, which would develop over the next few years, could come to include 230 room hotel, 62 residential units, more than 200,000 square feet of office space, restaurants, luxury, shopping, and even an ice area/amphitheater in Shaw Park!
Apogee Associates, who submitted the project to Clayton officials, stated in the proposal that this project “goes so much further to cement Clayton’s place as a destination, not just for office but a Live-Work-Play destination for generations to come.” Apogee is hoping to create a sort of “Rodeo Drive” effect with the high end shopping boutiques and luxury apartments above.
Unfortunately, at this point Apogee Associates has yet to release more detailed images of the development and what is planned. Once we know more we will be sure to share it.
