Yen points to this this post on the Shumacher real estate broker blog that states “Steve Josovitz just sold the Garlic Thai Sushi ( Formerly Little Azio) in Decatur. …The Buyer John Mathews will be opening a American seasonal restaurant to be called NATIVE “A Local Joint”.
I’ve verified the news through another source. No obvious online info about the new restaurant yet.

CORRECTION: Garlic Thai is NOT affiliated with Harry & Sons as I had originally stated. This is Garlic’s first restaurant, though the General Manager has worked at several other restaurants in the Atlanta metro and in other states, according to an email I received this morning.
It may not even have a sign up yet, but AsianCajun Lauren Lee tells DM that Garlic Thai Cuisine & Sushi Bar – in the old Little Azio space at 340 West Ponce de Leon Ave – will finally open to the mouths of the public tomorrow.
Decaturites and food junkies near and far have been anticipating this opening since late January, but renovations of the space took a couple months, and the siren call of Thai and sushi sort of diminished.
With its opening tomorrow, we will soon have a better sense of whether Garlic Thai will up the ante of Asian cuisine in the Decatur area.
If anyone is aware of a website, let us know!
Slight aside: At a slightly broader scale, it is impressive that a building almost completely vacant a few months ago is again almost completely chock-full of tenants.

As the DNO noted on Facebook, the city commission is scheduled to approve a liquor license for “Garlic Thai Cuisine & Sushi Bar” at 340 West Ponce de Leon Avenue at Monday’s city commission meeting.
Decatur’s latest business trend seems to be Thai food and heathcare.
