57th Fighter Group Restaurant Resurrected?

57th Fighter Group Restaurant, nestled behind thick trees and shrubs on Clairmont Road, closed over a year ago with little mention of it anywhere. Located next to Peachtree-DeKalb airport, the space seemed ideal for a unique dining experience, as the eatery's outdoor patio allowed diners to view takeoff and landing closer than any restaurant we're aware of. Once said to have been considered by Metrotainment for a new concept, there is now a sign at the restaurant's Clairmont Road entrance proclaiming "57th Restaurant Coming Soon". Another chance, a new life, new owner, new menu, little is known at this point but rest assured we'll have details long before takeoff. Repeat Atlanta!

Yes - the restaurant will re-open soon (Late Sept or Early Oct 09). I spoke with the manager, Sept 16th, and the place is totally refreshed to the original period decor of the WWII era. The GM will be the same person that ran the restaurant back in the 90's when the place was well known for great food and service, and with the support of new owners, they are realy excited about re-opening and returning to an exceptional dining experience for Atlanta.
