5th Street Cafe Shuts Down After 78 Days In Business
Two Restaurant Concept Failures At The Same Space In Less Than 10 Months
We are shocked to confirm that 5th Street Cafe, located at 800 Peachtree street in Midtown, closed after dinner service last night, October 26, on their 78th day in business.
Taking space that originally opened as Eno By Zaza at the turn of the year, 5th Street Cafe opened Thursday, August 9, with a bistro-style decor by Patti Krohngold.
The restaurant is owned by Atlanta Hawk Zaza Pachulia and ADI Restaurants’ Ian Winslade and A.D. Allushi.
“We were losing a tremendous amount of money at 5th Street Cafe,” Allushi said. “Our projected revenues were nowhere near our actual sales.”
Allushi added that fixed costs and rent which, when weighed against sales, made staying in business senseless.
“Most restaurateur’s in Atlanta won’t cease operation because of pride. I’m not too prideful to let go.”
