Max’s Coal Oven Pizzeria to close at Perimeter Mall next week

Max’s Coal Over Pizzeria is slated to close next week at Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody after just shy of two years.

The Legacy Ventures restaurant will shutter at 3 p.m. on Dec. 24. The location opened in January 2018.

The original downtown Atlanta Max’s will remain open.

Legacy, which also owns Atlanta spots STATS Brewpub , Game-X, Twin Smokers BBQ, Glenn’s Kitchen, SkyLounge at the Glenn Hotel, Der Biergarten, Ventanas, City View Room, Legacy Catering and Events and Legacy Test Kitchen, released a statement regarding the closure:

We are thankful for the last two years of business in the Dunwoody area and encourage our guests to visit our Downtown location at 300 Marietta Street for our renowned coal-oven pizzas.

All staff have all been provided positions at our other restaurant locations, to ensure no one is without a job during the holiday season.

Max’s served New York-style pizza and had a 200-person dining room plus a private dining area and a full-service bar.

The restaurant is the second pizza concept to close in the same space in the past few years; Max’s took over the space from Varasano’s Pizzeria, which closed in 2016 after less than a year.
