December opening for 10th & Piedmont in former Outwrite space

New Midtown restaurant and lounge will specialize in shareable cuisine and late night entertainment

On the heels of this week's news that a new gay-friendly restaurant and bar, "10," will soon be moving into the former Five Napkin Burger space at the corner of Piedmont Avenue and 10th Street, the owners of the restaurant and lounge set to open across the street in former Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse space said their doors will be open by December.

Restaurateurs and brothers Sean and Gilbert Yeremyan, owners of Gilbert’s Café & Bar that is next door to the 2,500 square-foot Outwrite space, are excited about the opening of "10th & Piedmont" in a few of months.

“We want to create a place that will complete your night,” said Sean Yeremyan. “10th & Piedmont was designed to appeal to our neighbors who want to enjoy dinner with a group, late night drinks, or something in between.”

Guests will be able to enter the restaurant and lounge from inside the adjacent restaurant, Gilbert’s Café & Bar, or use the entrance located at the Piedmont intersection.

Serving seasonally inspired dishes, creatively portioned into small bites for easy sharing, 10th & Piedmont’s Executive Chef Brett Ring will use multi-cultural flavors and organic ingredients to execute global cuisine with a regional, Southern influence.

The community-focused restaurant will serve lunch and dinner daily, as well as weekend brunch. Late night will bring an additional opportunity for guests to enjoy the vodka bar, extensive wine selection, cozy lounge seating and DJ entertainment.

The teams of Goodrowe ǀ Hobby, EarthStation Architecture and Structor Group are designing the space. The Yeremyan brothers also own and operate HOBNOB Neighborhood Tavern across from Ansley Mall.

10th & Piedmont will be located at 991 Piedmont Ave., while across the street, "10" will be at 990 Piedmont Ave.

I agree with Patrick, Sean and Gilbert where there first... I think another name for the 5 Napkins place would be good. Although, I seldom frequent Gilbert's and as a straight guy in Midtown, I hope that corner of the neighborhood stays gay friendly and does not become a Cheesy Buckhead!

Not necessary. "10" will not be around long as a restaurant. It really wants to be just a bar wait and see

I agree with Patrick. Too confusing!
But wait, October 01, 2012 at 06:19 PM
how about BOTH restaurants attempt to get a little more creative with the name other than the street or intersection it is on. Too cheap to hire a marketing group or not creative enough to come up with something on their own? These names are just about on par with the trend of removing all vowels from names to make it look like an acronym. I'm looking at you STK and BGR...

I agree with the restaurant/bar wanting to just be a bar. It is much easier to sell the neighbors on a restaurant that is also a bar than just a bar.
