Apparently casual didn’t work either.
The Atlanta Hawks Forward-Center Zaza Pachulia (left) has decided to shutter Midtown’s Fifth Street Cafe only after about three months in operation, according to reporting on the website What Now, Atlanta. Co-owner A.D. Allushi told the website, “We were losing a tremendous amount of money” at the Peachtree Street eatery, and that “projected revenues were nowhere near our actual sales.”
Pachulia and company had tried to make a go of the space as Eno by Zaza, a revamping of the longtime former tenant, Eno Restaurant.
Allushi, Pachulia and their third partner, chef Ian Winslade, still operate Buckhead Bottle Bar.
