Dunwoody is getting a new restaurant.
Takorea, a Korean / Mexican fusion eatery will soon open a new location in Dunwoody. The new Takorea is opening in place of a shuttered Guthrie's (fried chicken), located in an outparcel of Georgetown shopping center on Chamblee-Dunwoody Road. The center is also home to Goldberg's Bagel, Starbucks, Farm Burger and Morelli's and is anchored by Kroger.
(The former Guthrie's was first, and for many years, a Dairy Queen.)
Guthrie's closed last August and there was early talk that Starbucks would take over the space to gain access to the drive-thru window. Apparently Starbucks opted to stay put in their existing space within the center.
I first heard talk of Takorea as long ago as December, but at the time was told the deal had "fallen apart." A tip from a reader clued me into the fact that the deal is very much alive.
An employee at the midtown location told me the owners hope to have the new location open in August.
The first Takorea opened in late 2011 on Juniper Street in midtown.
