New pizzeria coming to Buckhead.
Rosati's, a Chicago-based pizza franchise, is adding a second Atlanta area location. The new Rosati's will open in north Buckhead on Wieuca Road, just off Roswell Road. The restaurant opens in place of Chastain Tavern, which had been for sale and was recently sold and closed.
Chastain Tavern opened in late August 2014.
The first Atlanta area Rosati's opened in 2013 in Cumming in place of a former Buckhead Pizza Co. Local resident Matt Smith is the franchisee of both the Cumming and Buckhead restaurants.
Rosati's is a casual restaurant featuring a full bar, Chicago-style, thin-crust, double-dough pizzas, calzones, a variety of pastas, sandwiches, salads, desserts and catering. The Buckhead location, which measures 4,772 square feet, will provide seating for about 150 plus outdoor seating for 100 in addition to a bar with seating for 20. The restaurant has two floors and plans to better utilize the second floor.
Sources indicate that the Buckhead Rosati's is targeting an October opening.
Steve Josovitz with The Shumacher Group represented the seller in the transaction.
