Atlanta-based Flying Biscuit Cafe, which last month closed its restaurant in Paces Ferry Plaza, has found a new home. Promising to be "moving to a new location in a nearby neighborhood," Flying Biscuit has found its new location, barely four miles away.
Earlier this evening, Leslie Mintz, who handles leasing for both Paces Ferry Plaza and Howell Mill Village on behalf of Regency Centers, sent out the following tweet:
"Let's welcome @FBCafe to Howell Mill Village! @regencycenters #openingQ4"
Mintz also mentioned that other blog in her tweet but did not indicate an exact space or square footage that Flying Biscuit will occupy. Knowing the area as well as I do, I think it's fairly reasonable to suspect that the eatery will occupy suite 0016, in the lower level of the Publix-anchored center. The space, situated between Orangetheory Fitness as well as another, smaller available space, was previously a restaurant. Stooges Sports Bar and before that Billy Jack's Barbecue and Shrimp Co., a locally owned BBQ-centric restaurant, operated in the space between 2010 and 2011.
Given Mintz indicates that the restaurant will open in the fourth quarter, the Billy Jack's / Stooges space seems like the only currently available space that would allow for such a quick turnaround. By itself, the current Billy Jack's space is 2,400 square feet and the adjacent space is another 1,300. (Stooges occupied both suites)
Do you think this new Flying Biscuit location is a good move for the restaurant? Do you think Flying Biscuit has lost its charm in the years since Delia Champion sold the concept to Raving Brands (now Big Game Brands)? What is your favorite breakfast joint in Buckhead?
