[EXCLUSIVE] Arden's Garden Closed, Cafe Agora Midtown Expanding

Popular Mediterranean restaurant Cafe Agora will soon expand its presence in Midtown by taking over the space adjacent to their existing restaurant.  Currently located at 92 Peachtree Place, the eatery will in the coming months expand to 90 Peachtree Place, too, basically doubling the size of the restaurant.  The expansion into the adjacent space was made possible by the recent closure of Arden's Garden, which reportedly opted not to renew their lease.  Arden's Garden still has seventeen other locations in Georgia, including one on Monroe Drive in Midtown, another on Euclid Avenue in Little 5 Points, and on Roswell Road in Buckhead, among others.  

Plans for the expansion and renovation are still being finalized, but general manager and co-owner Memo Ozelci tells ToNeTo Atlanta that the "new" Cafe Agora will offer a more expansive menu, a higher level of service and increased seating, among other upgrades.  

Cafe Agora Midtown opened in early 2012, the second location for the popular Buckhead eatery.  The Buckhead restaurant, which first opened in 2005 at 262 East Paces Ferry Road, relocated in 2013 to a much larger freestanding building at  318 East Paces Ferry Road.  

Are you pleased to see Cafe Agora expanding in Midtown?  What is your favorite Mediterranean dish?  Who do you think makes the best falafel in metro Atlanta?

Greed and over expansion is what I see here. Also, scared that another small eatery would have given him competition. The owner must have been sleeping under a rock these past months. Restaurants are slimming down and offering a walk-up style. Midtown has a great walk score for walk-up concepts. He will regret picking up an additional $3,500 monthly increase. Not to mention the construction. Greed and trying to stop another business from entering the block will be his ultimate downfall. I give him 42 months before he try to sublease it. Nobody is sitting down in “C” list restraurants. Atlanta is soooooo over Mediterranean food and Asian food.
