[Vroom Vroom] Clutch To Open in Former Montie's in Brookhaven

Entrepreneur Lemont Bradley plans to open a new restaurant, Clutch,  in the coming weeks in the former Montie's Public House on Buford Highway in Brookhaven.  Montie's, a popular neighborhood bar, closed last January after about nine and a half years in business.  Prior to Montie's, the building was home to Zuffy's Place which was itself a relocation of sorts of the former Fuzzy's Place from North Druid Hills Road.   
The building, originally a Denny's, is located on Corporate Boulevard, just off Buford Highway, not far from the Pink Pony.

Not only is the new restaurant near the infamous Atlanta strip club but it is also a stone's throw from the initial phase of the Peachtree Creek Greenway.  Envisioned as a 12 mile greenway along Peachtree Creek, the PATH Foundation is hard at work completing the first phase which should be open later this fall and connect North Druid Hills Road to Briarwood Road.  

Clutch, which is is expected to feature a comedy night, Latin light and other themed events, as well as comedy shows and live music, will be a traditional American restaurant in terms of food and plans to be open late at night on the weekends, according to those familiar with the plans.  

Bradley's existing business, Auto Spa Bistro, is a car wash and eatery on 14th Street in Home Park. The business, which Bradley refers to as the "country club of car washes," opened in late 2011. 

What are your thoughts on this new venue?  Are you excited for the Peachtree Creek Greenway? What is your favorite restaurant along Buford Highway in Brookhaven (not Chamblee or Doraville)?

Sounds a lot like Montie's with an interior upgrade.

Don't worry, Brookhaven will find a way to run them out of business.

Good luck. But it's a crappy location.
