From Buckhead Life Group: Buckhead Life Restaurant Group (BLRG) announces today it will permanently close Buckhead Diner after consistently attracting musicians, actors, sports stars, politicians, tourists, other celebrity guests – as well as local regulars - since 1987. Known for its ritzy, retro vibe and creative and delicious menu, BLRG made the difficult decision to not renew the lease for the restaurant at 3073 Piedmont Road to focus on other new and highly anticipated endeavors. 

“It was with a heavy heart that we made the decision to not renew our lease for Buckhead Diner,” said Niko Karatassos, President of Buckhead Life Restaurant Group. “For nearly 35 years this was the spot to be and be seen. It will forever be remembered as one of, if not the greatest, American restaurants in the country. We are happy to have hosted many celebrities and loyal locals over the decades.”
