P’cheen Closing Feb. 9


Here’s what owners Alex Friedman, Keiran Neely and Mike LaSage posted on the P’cheen Facebook page today:

While it’s with heavy hearts that we share the news P’cheen will be closing its doors, we are excited that a new concept will open in its place – our home for eight wonderful years in the Old Fourth Ward – by a longtime friend and patron of the restaurant.  We cannot thank our neighbors, the community, the City of Atlanta, our loyal patrons, and our friends and family enough for their ongoing support and encouragement over the years. We will be focusing our efforts the Edgewood Speakeasy, Pizzeria Vesuvius, and Bone Lick BBQ along with exploring new ventures.  In the meantime, we will be hosting a number of closing events at P’cheen through Sunday, February 9th as our way to thank all of you.  Please feel free to stop by the restaurant, ask questions, and simply hangout for one last time. Thank you again for believing in us and in the Old Fourth Ward. We look forward to seeing you on Edgewood Avenue and in West Midtown at Bone Lick.  — Alex, Keiran and Mike

According to publicist Caren West, the partners weren’t in the market to sell. But Bernard Moussa, former co-owner of Woodfire Grill, is the longtime patron and friend of Friedman and Neely’s who approached them about taking over the spot. It’s rumored that Moussa is planning to open a cocktail-oriented concept in the space.

Friedman will be moving to Pizzeria Vesuvius were he’ll be revamping the menu. Friedman will also expand the bar bites menu at the Edgewood Speakeasy. LaSage will continue on at Bone Lick BBQ.

Maybe with all this extra time, they’ll learn how to cook the ribs at Bone Lick. You should not have to chew the meat off a rib bone.

Grasshopper…….you are right. You should not have to chew the ribs off the bone and ribs should never just fall off the bone. With the perfect rib it only takes a small tug.

It will be very sad to see them go. Of all his concepts this is the only one I actually like. During the summer they were always a part of my “Sunday Fun Day”. The DJ would spin some awesome tunes and I would sit on the patio with a little moonshine, and some of those smoked wings. I’ve tried Bone Lick twice and left disappointed both times.

P’cheen? Sounds like an ITP name to me
