Lenox Square Grill Closes

Food quality and service may have been an issue.

Atlanta-based CentraArchy Restaurant Management Co. has closed its Lenox Square Grill restaurant at Lenox Square in Buckhead, according to Tomorrow's News Today.

CentraArchy, which also operates The Tavern at Phipps and New York Prime, opened the restaurant in 2009, replacing the former Clubhouse eatery.

It closed Friday.

On its Facebook page, Lenox Square Grill thanked its customers for their years of patronage:

To our loyal guests: Lenox Square Grill is closed for business as a result of the upcoming Lenox Square Mall renovation. From all of our employees, we thank you for your support over the last 3 years.

Lenox Square Grill's menu offered meals at lower price points than its sister restaurants, but Tomorrow's News Today reported that customers lamented the the quality of the food and the customer service was not up to snuf.

The restaurant's closure comes amid a backdrop of larger changes at Lenox Square Mall that are designed to make the front of it more pedestrian-friendly, Tomorrow's News Today reported.

Additional changes are planned for several areas of the mall, including the food court, Tomorrow's News Today said.

I stay away from Lennox square at all costs. too ghetto and Macy's is the filthiest store I've ever set foot in.

I hate when people use the word ghetto to describe something bad or something they don't like. I am from the projects, the ghetto and I am nothing like the ideas and images associated with the word Ghetto. I have lived all over Atlanta, Including Alpharetta and Powder Springs, and trust me, Cobb Co has some of the most ratchet ppl and neighborhoods being passed off as lovely suburbia. But on topic: I hate to see them close but their service was The worst!

we personally havnt been in a store at lenox in quite a few years because we dont really have the money to support their stores...however over the years there has been the creeping in of undesirable elements to the area & its stores..As is the case w/ smaller malls...Thrifting now...dont even wanna trudge thru the fireworks experience.......OH}}}} & The politically correct term now is "urban" - not ghetto.......no b difference b . . . . .

I shop at Lenox often since it's a mile from my house and really don't understand people's use of ghetto or even urban to describe the mall. I enjoy living in a city that reflects many cultural backgrounds even in the "burbs". I think Lenox offers a wide variety of stores from affordable (GAP and Macy's) to higher end (Louis Vuitton and Bloomingdales). I look forward to the face life the mall is receiving and the new restaurant that could take the place of the Grill as well as the cafe that will be opening where Crate & Barrel use to be.

I loved Lenox Grill! I will miss the menu selections. I told ppl that they had the best shrimp n grits! I always had great service when I went. The prices were good too. They lost business by not staying open past 10pm and not promoting itself as much. I worked at Lenox and most of my customers had know idea such a good restaurant was available at the mall besides California Pizza Kitchen.
