Other clients were from local industry, corporate dinners, pharmaceutical dinners from 3 teaching hospitals in the area and monthly wine pairing dinners. Additionally there were wedding receptions, special events venue, seasonal festivals, charity dinners and other yearly events.
Broad Street is about three blocks away and currently two large hotels are scheduled for construction on Broad Street in the near future. A fine restaurant such as this would be a real draw for the guests who will be staying at these facilities. Across the Savannah River and within a quarter mile of Broad Street, another hotel is scheduled to be built at a new ball park.
The asking price is a reduced price. As an operating business the price would be much higher. Due to the unexpected death of the owner and chef, his family closed the restaurant and has now set the price to just cover the building, kitchen equipment, furniture and fixtures. If a Buyer would be interested in the client list of over 1500 e-mail contacts, the owner will include these at an additional charge to be negotiated. Owner will provide consultation, if requested, at no additional cost. Owner is confident that with the excellent reputation earned over the years and all the loyal patrons, with the right chef, this business could be up and running very successfully in a very short time. Not only would this restaurant be a place for fine dining, but a wonderful location for catering venues for weddings and special events. The grand staircase beneath a beautiful chandelier makes for a very impressive entrance hall and photo setting. Currently Augusta has a shortage of venues for weddings and other special events.
