Italian eatery to make way for Asian concept.
Firenze Ristorante at 6025 Peachtree Parkway in Norcross will close later this week. The 6,000 square foot restaurant is located in the same center as Nemoe's Bar & Tavern (fka Slocum's Tavern & Grill). Firenze seemed to have offered discounts and deals on just about every site from Scoutmob to Living Social to Groupon, and likely many others. Despite their constant marketing efforts, locals tell me the restaurant never seemed all that busy and was just not that good.
In its place, a new, as yet unnamed concept specializing in "Asian street food and tapas," will open. The new concept will reportedly have a "killer lounge and outdoor patio."
