[UPDATE] Rosati's Has Closed in Chastain Park, Condos to Replace it?

Rosati's Chicago Pizza has closed its outpost on Wieuca Road near Chastain Park.  The restaurant, which occupied a oft-changing roughly 3,000 square foot building at 4629 Wieuca Road, closed as of January 31, according to signage at the restaurant.  Local operator Matt Smith originally opened the Chastain area Rosati's in May 2017.  A Cumming location on Peachtree Parkway near The Collection at Forsyth remains open.  There are reportedly no plans to reopen the Chastain location elsewhere in the area.  

The restaurant's seemingly abrupt and quiet closure caught many off-guard.  According to City of Atlanta permits, the restaurant in October 2020 spent what was likely a considerable amount of money to "install an 11' grease hood over a conveyor pizza oven with exhaust fan, makeup air fan, grease duct and makeup air duct."

Despite being open for close to five years, a sign posted to the restaurant's front door thanked the community "for the last four years."  

Prior to opening as Rosati's, the building was home to Chastain Tavern and before that, a franchise of Twisted Taco.  Local sources tell ToNeTo Atlanta that the building was originally constructed as a Dairy Queen more than fifty years ago.  

Real estate and other industry sources tell ToNeTo Atlanta that the former Rosati's, which sits on a .61 acre parcel, and the adjacent former Fabricare Cleaners, which sits on .42 acres, were recently sold and together will be redeveloped into condos. 

Are you disappointed to see Rosati's closed in Chastain Park?  What is your favorite type of pizza?  Do you think condos make sense for the former Rosati's property?

Please share your thoughts below.

I liked it; sorry to see them go. There is a definite shortage of good pizza options in the area.

I really miss the insane variety of beer on tap. At one point there was 105 taps to choose form. I will miss them :(

So disappointed they closed. It was a taste of home, being that I am from Chicago. Please, consider moving to East Cobb in Marietta
