A longtime Little Five Points restaurants is slated to close at the end of the year.
The Cajun-themed Front Page News, located at 351 Moreland Ave. NE, will close Dec. 31 after 19 years, owner Josh Sagarin told What Now Atlanta and confirmed to the AJC.
The space will be taken over by Metrotainment Cafes in early 2020 for use as a Hudson Grill. In addition to seven Hudson Grill locations, Metrotainment also owns metro Atlanta restaurants Einstein’s, Sugar Shack, Guaco Joe’s and Joe’s on Juniper.
Front Page News employees will reportedly get jobs at the new Hudson Grill.
“I was burned out and ready to be done,” Sagarin told the AJC. “The guys behind Hudson Grill came to me with a good offer. I’ve known them for over 20 years, and I thought we could work something out, and we did. I can go out on a good note.”
This is the second closure for Sagurin in just more than a year; his neighboring Tijuana Garage closed in December 2018 after 15 years. The first Front Page News, which opened in 2002 in Midtown, closed several years ago.
The AJC has reached out to representatives for Metrotainment Cafes for comment and more details about the changes.
