|'10th and Piedmont' restaurant opening in former Outwrite bookstore space|

Gilbert's Cafe and Bar owners say a restaurant named "10th and Piedmont" will open in December in the space once occupied by Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse in the heart of the gayborhood.
Located next door to the former Outwrite space, the gay-friendly Gilbert's has been working on the expansion since early this year. It's December opening was first reported by the Midtown Patch just days after news that a new restaurant named "10" is opening in the former Five Napkin Burger space. So "10" will be located across the street from "10th and Piedmont" — a number developers are apparently hoping has the magic touch, at least much more so than five (Five Napkin only stayed open for about a year.)
Restaurateurs and brothers Sean and Gilbert Yeremyan, owners of Gilbert’s, said they were excited about their new restaurant's opening and were also happy to welcome "10" to the neighborhood.
From the Patch:
“We want to create a place that will complete your night,” said Sean Yeremyan. “10th & Piedmont was designed to appeal to our neighbors who want to enjoy dinner with a group, late night drinks, or something in between.”
Guests will be able to enter the restaurant and lounge from inside the adjacent restaurant, Gilbert’s Café & Bar, or use the entrance located at the Piedmont intersection.
"The corner of 10th and Piedmont has been a beacon of progressive attitudes, acceptance and respect, we wish to continue that legacy as the city matures and welcomes an ever increasing diversity and a growing respect for general human rights," the owners said in a Facebook posting.
Outwrite closed Jan. 26, 2011, and filed for bankruptcy after years of financial struggle.
