You know that restaurant in your neighborhood that you always wonder how it stays in business, but figure it must be busy at some point, or else must have some well funded and carefree owner who just needs a hobby? That was Atlanta Diner to me. The restaurant had been a fixture on North Druid Hills Road, just off I-85, since the mid 90s, and it quietly closed a of couple weeks ago. I'm not exactly sure when it closed, but it appears to have been a fairly recent development.
Although it was unrelated to either Landmark Diner or the Marietta Diner, my recollection is that there was some connection to the now demolished Northlake Diner on LaVista Road.
The space has already attracted at least one "urban camper," and is just a few blocks too far away from either the Loehmann's Plaza area or the Buford Highway/North Druid Hills Road intersection to be very appealing. The parcel does have access from both North Druid Hills Road and West Druid Hills Drive but it's also across the street from the Salvation Army and a Krystal restaurant, possibly limiting potential replacements.
What do you think should open in place of this restaurant?
