[UPDATE] Pasha Mediterranean Restaurant & Lounge Coming to Buckhead

A new restaurant called Pasha Mediterranean Restaurant & Lounge is coming soon to Buckhead Crossing shopping center near the Lindbergh MARTA station.  Set to occupy a newly combined 5,150 square foot space on the lower level of the center along Miami Circle, the new restaurant will be located alongside existing tenants Salon Lofts and California Closets, in the Marshalls, Ross and HomeGoods anchored center.

The new restaurant is being opened by serial restaurateur Okan Ozyurteri, previously owner of Buckhead's Istanblue on Pharr Road and current owner of Mandolin Mediterranean Kitchen on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs.  Pasha is the realization of the "Mandolin-like upscale Mediterranean eatery" that we reported on in advance of Mandolin's opening in 2017.

Pasha will feature a wide array of Mediterranean and European fare in an upscale but casual atmosphere.  The menu will feature pasta, pizza and assorted tapas as well as select classic Mediterranean favorites.  Pasha will also feature hookah, joining nearby establishments like Divan and Istanblue in offering the popular flavored tobacco. 

Permits indicate that Ozyurteri is spending at least $250,000 to convert the former acquisitions home decor and furniture store into a restaurant, including building out a kitchen and adding a patio.

In Buckhead Crossing, Pasha joins Nancy's Chicago Pizza, which opened near Marshalls at the end of 2017 and marked the pizzeria's return to Buckhead after closing on Peachtree Road in 2015. 

Pasha's location, along Miami Circle, on the side of the center, could make it an attractive destination for those leaving popular bowling bar the Painted Pin, located nearby down Miami Circle.  

Ozyurteri hopes to have Pasha open in late April or early May.
