Heirloom Market BBQ Owners to Open Second Restaurant in Old Kitsch’n 155 Space

UPDATE:  More detailed info over on Tomorrow’s News Today!  Here’s a blurb…

According to a local source, Heirloom owners Cody Taylor and Jiyeon Lee are opening an as yet unnamed eatery in place of Kitsch’n 155. Little else is known about the restaurant aside from the Korean influenced restaurant will be local-driven, and Lee will take the lead in the kitchen.

As nittany313 mentioned late last week, there’s been an Heirloom Market BBQ trailer sitting in the parking lot of the Old Kitsch’n 155 space on Clairmont Road the last few days.  She wondered “Is Heirloom Market BBQ going into the old Kitsch’n 155 space?”  Turns out that yes, they are…sort of.  Eater Atlanta reports this morning

The good news is that owners Cody Taylor and Jiyeon Lee have another restaurant in the works. This one will not serve barbecue, and it will replace Kitsch’n 155 on Clairmont Road. The restaurant will be local-driven, and Lee will take the lead in the kitchen, which means the menu will have Korean influences. The team isn’t ready to reveal much more than that quite yet, but the buildout has started, so look for more details soon.

Thanks to all who forwarded the Eater link!

  1. Holy crap, holy crap, holy crap….

    My office is a stone’s throw from Heirloom and I have been an passionate devotee from within days of their opening. If anyone can make the unique Kitsch’n location work, they can. Hell, it’ll be like five times as much parking as they’re used to…

    1. I’m almost as excited as you are, lump. However, the little stories on Eater insist that there will be no BBQ at the new location. So I’m not sure that my excitement is justified. After all, it is the BBQ at Heirloom that sets my heart on fire. Clearly, though, the owners know how to cook so it should be good. But goodness I wish they’d do their BBQ here.

      1. In all honesty, while Heirloom is my favorite BBQ in the city (and a lot of that is due to the Korean influence making it so unique), I’m perfectly fine scratching that itch at Community Q or Fox Bros. when I’m craving BBQ near the house. I’m kind of glad this will be a new concept.

  2. So excited about this!! I loved Kitsch’n and was sad to see it go, but could love a Korean-influenced, local-food driven restaurant more. Heck, I would love a Korean restaurant in the neighborhood – kimchi, kimbap, dwenjang jjigae, etc. I would be there all the time.

  3. With the highly regarded Community Q so close to there, it’s probably good they’re doing something different.
