Big changes at P’cheen in the Old Fourth Ward

pcheenWord is out that there are some big changes underway at P’cheen. The long-running neighborhood spot in the Old Fourth Ward closed for renovations on May 5 and will softly reopen this evening at 5 p.m.

Georgiaville Food Company (P’cheen, Bone Lick BBQ, Vesuvius, Edgewood Speakeasy) has partnered with restauranteur Jeff Myers (Top Flr, SoundTable) to breathe some new life into the place with the idea of making it over as a concept similar to Octopus Bar in East Atlanta.

In 2012, Georgiaville opened Bone Lick BBQ, took over Pizzeria Vesuvius, and added the Edgewood Speakeasy. With all that going on, poor P’cheen may have gotten a little lost in the shuffle.

But renovations are bringing a new look, including a new bar top and a new color scheme, and the lounge is moving to the back of the restaurant.

There’s a new menu from chef/owner Alex Friedman, who recently appeared on the TV show, “Chopped.”

Look for mid-sized, sharable plates priced at $4-$12, including the likes of BBQ octopus, pork belly nigiri, pan-fried frog legs, turtle soup, and lamb belly ravioli.

Be here: 701-5 Highland Avenue, www.pcheen.com

I would eat at P’cheen every few months, but only on Monday nights when they served the BBQ. I tried their regular menu twice and found it to be rather pedestrian. Now that Bone Lick has moved into its own place, it will be good that P’cheen is getting a makeover on both the decor and menu.
