The business had operated on Highland Avenue for many years.
Key Lime Pie, a longtime salon, spa and hairdresser in Virginia Highland, has shut its doors. A piece of paper taped to the front door at 806 N. Highland Ave. says, "We are in the process of moving to a new location." The paper didn't list the new location. The phone number provided as a contact gave a busy signal on several calls. An employee at a nearby business says the spa cleared out on Friday. Key Lime Pie was located next door to Ben & Jerry's, which closed in 2011. The closing leaves an extended amount of empty storefront space on North Highland.

Gatsby's will have a Roaring Twenties theme.
Gatsby's, a new nightclub and dessert lounge, is preparing to open for business, possibly as soon as Thursday. The business will take over the former 3-Legged Cowboy space in the shopping center at 10th and Monroe Drive. Employees will be adorned in Roaring Twenties period clothing inside the nearly 8,000 square-foot venue. The no-smoking nightclub will feature live music and DJs. Adam Rogers says he and his wife, Kristin, will run the business. But it won’t have real estate developer Eric Claxton as part of the proprietorship or in any other capacity as was originally reported two weeks ago. When Claxton’s name was made public as one of those "opening the club," a handful of Patch readers expressed concern about recent charges of …

Popular eatery taking over former Jersey Mike's Subs space
A Midtown dining favorite is expanding. MetroFresh, a popular destination for health-conscious eaters for the last seven years, is in the process of doubling the size of its space located in the Midtown Promenade shopping center at 931 Monroe Drive. Restaurant owner and chef Mitchell Anderson told Patch that he plans to take over the recently shuttered Jersey Mike’s Subs space next door to MetroFresh, expanding both the interior and exterior portions of the restaurant. “The opportunity came up and we jumped,” Anderson said. “We’re very excited.” Plans are to knock out the wall adjoining the two spaces, which will result in the restaurant’s size doubling to about 2,500 square feet. The size of the kitchen will also increase two-fold to help…

Chai Pani is expanding from its base in Asheville, N.C. Meanwhile, another Asheville favorite, Tupelo Honey, is looking for a place in Atlanta and is very interested in Decatur.
The old Watershed restaurant in Decatur, empty for more than a year, will soon have a new tenant. Chai Pani, which serves Indian street food in Asheville, N.C., will move into the old Watershed restaurant location on West Ponce de Leon, Tomorrow's News Today - Atlanta reported in a story on Thursday. Chai Pani's website says its run by a husband and wife team, Meherwan & Molly Irani. Meherwan, the executive chef, says: It seems that the typical Indian restaurant is in a rut – the ubiquitous lunch buffet, white table cloths & ornate plates, slightly austere service, and a predominantly North Indian menu. I wanted to bring the rest of India to the table – the colorful, vibrant & exquisite flavor profiles, the innovative regional diversity, …

Former Virginia-Highland chocolate shop relocates again
Sugar-Coated Radical is relocating for the third time in a year. The popular chocolate shop, which first opened on Drewry Street in Virginia-Highland, relocated this month to 889 Wylie St. in the Reynoldstown neighborhood. Owner Taria Camerino opened the Old Fourth Ward location in September 2011 and shut the doors in June 2012.
