[CLOSURE ALERT] Maki Fresh Quietly Shutters in Peachtree Battle

Fledgling quick-serve sushi eatery Maki Fresh has closed its lone Atlanta area restaurant.  The roughly 3,400 square foot restaurant opened in Peachtree Battle Shopping Center in Buckhead in June 2011, and quietly closed last month, according to sources familiar with the restaurant.  Boneheads, a failed Raving Brands concept, had previously occupied the space.   Maki Fresh featured a number of sushi options, as well as curry bowls, rice bowls, salads and sliders, among other offerings.  One of the restaurant's most unique but underutilized features was a room in the back where they would occasionally offer sushi making classes for groups and date nights.
