EatZi's closes Atlanta locations

From the story:
EatZi's, the gourmet takeout store known for the opera music that serenades shoppers, closed its Buckhead and Dunwoody stores today, an employee confirmed.
EatZi's, founded by Phil Romano, the creator of such chains as Romano's Macaroni Grill and Fuddrucker's, is a privately held chain with other locations in Chicago and Dallas.

It offered an array of 100 ready-to-eat entrees and side dishes, made-to-order salads and sandwiches, and dozens of varieties of fresh bread and elaborate desserts, as well as dozens of cheeses. It also stocked some packaged foods, such as chips, wine and jams, and fruits that could be toted along with a packaged salad to lunch. Cafe seating let workers duck into the store for a quick lunch.

EatZi's opened its first Atlanta location in Buckhead, near the intersection of Piedmont and Peachtree Roads, in 1998. The Dunwoody store opened in 2004.
