A prominent low-rise building at one of Buckhead’s busiest intersections could be in for an aesthetic overhaul.
Representatives with popular Middle Eastern restaurant Delbar are scheduled to present plans Wednesday to Buckhead’s SPI-9 Development Review Committee for a remake and expansion of the longtime King + Duke restaurant space at 3060 Peachtree Road.
The former Ford Fry concept, situated at the southwest corner of where Peachtree Road meets West Paces Ferry Road, closed in June after a decade in business. (Prior to that, the space had housed Nava.)
Delbar announced last summer it would take the space at the One Buckhead Plaza building, which counts 16-foot interior ceilings and high visibility as perks. It will join current Delbar locations in Alpharetta and the original in Inman Park.
According to plans submitted by Fathom Architecture to the Buckhead DRC, Delbar’s plans will tack on another 1,940 square feet to the former King + Duke space.
That will include the addition of a 1,350-square-foot, open-air canopy and replacement of a 1,490-square-foot hardscape around the restaurant’s main entry. Modifications and fresh paint for the existing exterior are also in the works.
No variances from existing ordinances are being requested for the project, according to the DRC.
Delbar’s Persian menu counts Lebanese, Turkish, and Israeli influences. Other food options in the One Buckhead Plaza building include Chops, Umi, and Chai Yo.
In announcing Buckhead expansion plans earlier this year, Delbar representatives said the outdoor patio section will host live entertainment on weekends and that a hidden dining room will be located elsewhere, with seating for up to 16 guests.
