Jerry and Krista Slater (of The Expat) will open the upscale steakhouse in the Five Points neighborhood in the fall of 2022. Athens regulars will recognize the location as the original Five & Ten restaurant. Owner Krista Slater says,
“It is a special, historic building, and we hope to do well by it, creating a cozy spot to enjoy steaks, martinis and much more.” -Flagpole Grub Notes, Hillary Brown, Aug. 24, 2022
Jerry Slater tells the Red & Black, “We're looking [to create] the classic American Steakhouse. We find [that] a lot of diverse groups of people all kind of want the same retro fun thing, like a cold martini or wedge salad. You can pick your choice of steak but then have all of the sides, [like] potatoes in four different ways.” (September 28, 2022)
The restaurant will take reservations and is a great choice for a nice night out for those who like to dress up.
Slater’s executive chef will be Daniel Fetter, the former sous chef of Athens’ fine dining restaurant The National
