Heirloom Market BBQ recently announced that it would convert to a to-go/catering operation only. Bad news for the restaurant’s fans.
Today on its Facebook page, Heirloom revealed that there is a new non-barbecue restaurant in the works from chefs Jiyeon Lee and Cody Taylor. The restaurant will be housed in the former Kitsch’n 155 space on Clairmont Road, near the VA hospital.
To quell fears about the fate of Heirloom, the restaurant responded to Facebook comments on its post:
Heirloom To-GO is staying at Akers Mill and will not move unless we find a space directly in the area that we love…I’m currently looking and open to any space anywhere in Atlanta that I feel will work for Heirloom for years to come….if we leave the area we are at now than Heirloom Market To-Go will stay at the original Akers Mill location so all our supporters and regulars will not lose it from their neighborhood.
We will keep you posted with any new details about the new restaurant.
