[EXCLUSIVE] Wagaya to Open at Hanover West Peachtree in Midtown

Popular Japanese eatery Wagaya will soon open a third location at Hanover West Peachtree near the intersection of 10th and West Peachtree Streets in Midtown.  The restaurant will occupy an approximately 2,300 square foot space in the street level of the 332 unit mid-rise apartment complex.  The new location will reportedly be in addition to the existing Wagaya on 14th Street in Home Park, about one mile away, which opened in 2015.  

Wagaya marks the first of four retail spaces to be leased within the multifamily development.  There is about 12,000 square feet of space still available in the project, including corner suites at Spring and 10th Streets and at 10th and West Peachtree Streets, each with patio opportunities.

A second Wagaya opened on North Decatur Road in Emory Village in 2017.

Wagaya owner Takashi Otsuka via MGK Hospitality plans to open another Japanese restaurant called Chirori next door, in the former Better Half on 14th Street. Better Half closed this past October after five years in business.  The new restaurant will focus on sake paired with robatayaki — meats and seafood grilled over hot charcoal.  Chirori is a bottle used to warm sake.  Chirori was previously expected to open in late May, but is now on track for a mid-June opening according to a restaurant representative.  

A timeline for the start of construction and the opening of Wagaya at Hanover West Peachtree was not immediately available.  

Midtown has had its fair share of restaurant struggles over the years, but a new crop of entrants - Ponko Chicken, Bareburger, Burgerim, Halal Guys and Babalu, among others, are hoping to find success where many have closed.  

Do you think Midtown can support all the new and upcoming restaurants?  What new or upcoming Midtown area restaurant are you most excited about?  What other restaurants, retailers or services would you like to see open in Hanover West Peachtree?
