Slice & Pint in Emory Village is Closing Its Doors

Slice & Pint posted on Facebook late yesterday…

It’s with a heavy heart we announce that Slice & Pint will end operations on December 30 2017, as we are not renewing our lease. We sincerely appreciate all the love and support we have received over the last 5 years. Please come out and celebrate with us over the next 2 weeks as well as on our the last day, the 30th, for one last blowout. Thanks, Slice & Pint team.

  1. What is it with Emory Village? Why do places that cater to students (it’s pizza and beer!) have such a hard time? There just seems to be a lot of turnover for an area with solid disposable income and a lot of people walking.

    1. Any business that believes they will survive on the student trade will be sorely mistaken. Students are not in town June, July, August and the better part of 4 weeks over Christmas. Faculty drops off too. I can’t see how Jimmy Johns will ever make it with perhaps the worst sandwich in America.

  2. Excellent beer brewed on-premises, good pizza, and service that was mediocre on its best days. I still ate there regularly. (Did I mention the excellent beer?) I’m sorry to see it go, but would love to see Twain’s give it a go there.

    Though some restaurants at Emory Village turn frequently, many do well.

    Double Zero, owned by the folks who bring us Iberian Pig, is just plain excellent.

    I typically have to wait for a table at Rise-n-Dine. Saba and Dave’s Cosmic Subs have been around a long time. The chains appear to be pretty successful. Bad Dog Taqueria was pretty good, but closed after the owner was charged with homicide in a very sad case.

    1. The Japanese place, Wagaya, seems to be doing good business at both lunch and dinner.
      Slice and Pint had good food, but the service was too slow for the Emory lunch crowd.

    2. I liked the food and beer there too, and would frequent the restaurant every once in a while. I’m not sure what would have saved it. It’s hard to make the economics of a restaurant work in the best of circumstances. Rise n Dine should take over the space. They certain have the crowds for it!

  3. When I was a student at Emory, eleventy million years ago, the campus was smaller and Emory Village was pretty much it as far as easily accessible off-campus locations. There were also limited transportation options; either someone had a car or you took the 36 or the 6 MARTA bus. Today the campus is much bigger and some of it is closer to Emory Pointe, which has a lot more options than the Village. The Cliff shuttle takes folks all over the place, and there’s also Uber and Lyft. I think the expectation that Emory Village will continue to play the role that it once did is probably unrealistic.

  4. Unfortunately, the writing was on the wall pretty much after the first year in business. The place was never truly popular, and the service was often ridiculously bad. Crawford Moran, the local brewing pioneer, just can’t catch a break. He should have run the brewery there without the full service restaurant. I’m surprised he does not can his beer and sell it at local stores, like the dozens of other local brewers.
