Jeffrey Chodorow's Maxim Prime restaurant will close its first location March 1st*. Open for about a year, the restaurant was the first of a number of planned Maxim Prime locations nationwide. The reason behind the closure is owner David Marvin's desire to increase the meeting and banquet space of the hotel. There was talk months ago of Chodorow's China Grill restaurant coming to Buckhead, but no word of late. The speculation now being that Maxim Prime will reopen in a bigger Buckhead space within the next few months. Repeat Atlanta!
* Despite the closing date being reported as March 1st, a source within the restaurant claims it will in fact close this Sunday, February 15 after dinner service. Maxim-ize your time, eat while you still can!
