[CLOSURE ALERT] Taziki's Shutters at Lenox Square in Buckhead

Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe has closed its location within Lenox Square's "Fashion Cafe" in Buckhead.  The restaurant, a franchise of the Birmingham, Alabama based chain, opened in place of Subway in early 2016 and closed quietly within the past few days, according to local readers.  The Lenox outpost was one of several that a local franchise group opened in metro Atlanta over the past several years. 
Taziki's, as its name suggests, offered Mediterranean fare, and likely had a tough time competing in a food court where it was situated adjacent to Great Wraps, which offered similar fare.   Chick-fil-A and Chipotle, which seem to dominate at all meal times, also likely made it difficult for the new to market concept to attract business.  [Sources tell ToNeTo Atlanta that Rise Pies' future in the Fashion Cafe is questionable.] 

The closure of the Lenox Taziki's follows the closure of the Taziki's on West Ponce de Leon Avenue in Decatur last May.  The former Decatur location reopened earlier this year as Pho King, offering traditional Vietnamese fare. 

The closure of Buckhead Taziki's leaves the chain with six locations in Georgia: Sandy Springs, Toco Hills, Kennesaw, Suwanee, Alpharetta and Athens.  

Are you surprised that Taziki's closed in Lenox Square?  What is your favorite eatery in the Lenox Square "Fashion Cafe?"  What would you like to see open in place of Taziki's at Lenox Square?

Put Barnie’s Coffee and Tea back in that space. The food court at Lenox is lacking a coffee place.

Super average food. I ate at the Alpharetta location a few years back and it was completely non-memorable. I haven't been to the one at Toco despite living very close.
