[UPDATE] Atlanta Bar & Grille Opening in Place of Former Brookhaven Hudson Grille

The former Hudson Grille Brookhaven will reopen soon as "Atlanta Bar & Grille."  The new restaurant, in the works for the past few weeks, could reopen as soon as November 27.  Sources close to the restaurant indicate that the interior of the roughly 8,000 square foot restaurant has been "heavily renovated."  ToNeTo Atlanta stopped by the space Saturday morning and observed plenty of work going on but no new signage up and seemingly plenty still to do inside.  

According to the Atlanta Bar & Grille's recently launched Instagram page, they plan to be "your neighborhood country club x sports bar" with offerings ranging from nachos and chicken wings to oysters on the half shell, chicken fingers and tomahawk steaks, among other offerings.  

The restaurant's Instagram page further indicates that [as of October 30] they were actively hiring management, support staff, cocktail waitresses, servers, cooks and hosts.  

Atlanta Bar & Grille seems to be hoping it can find the same success in the space at Brookhaven Station that Hudson Grille had for many years, and which Jocks & Jills experienced before that.  

The new eatery marks the second replacement restaurant planned for the center.  ToNeTo Atlanta was first to report October 20 that Rapz wraps & smoothies plans to open soon in the former Sugar Shack.  Both Hudson Grille and Sugar Shack, which closed in March, were concepts owned and managed by Atlanta based Metrotainment Cafes.  

Operating an existing restaurant over the past few months has been challenging for basically everyone not named Chick-fil-A.   Opening a completely new restaurant during the pandemic and as we head into colder months where patios become less viable options will no doubt present unique challenges for the upcoming restaurant.  Hopefully, the food will be good, the service will be better, and the community will embrace it the way locals in nearby Chastain Park have taken to Mediterranean quick serve Sahara Cafe, which opened June 1.  

Have you heard anything else about Atlanta Bar & Grille?  Do you think Atlanta Bar & Grille will find success in the former Hudson Grille space?  What is your favorite Brookhaven area restaurant?

The best restaurant in Brookhaven? Without a doubt it's Kaleidoscope. Chef/owner Joey Riley is a gastro genius!

Hope they do well.
We went to Haven restaurant Saturday night and the food and service was outstanding as usual. They seem to be doing just fine despite the pandemic. We also tried to go to J. Alexander at Perimeter on Friday and they were on a hour+ wait. So they too seem to be coping. Great restaurants will survive.

Sure wish Houston’s would go in there. I’m sure another sports bar won’t last long
