HAVEN Marks 10 Years in Brookhaven
The restaurant was one of the first retailers to pioneer what has become a row of nightlife activities along Dresden Drive.
HAVEN Restaurant & Bar recently marked its 10th in Brookhaven.
In the process, HAVEN became a forerunner of the commercial development that followed, according to Neighbor Newspapers.
When owner Michel Arnette opened the restaurant, Dresden Drive had little retail development other than the old Mom & Pops down the street, whose barred windows and grimy decor did little to reflect a friendly demeanor.
Arnette told the news outlet that he believes HAVEN was one of catalysts for the onslaught of development that now encompasses Dresden Drive.
And he said he is looking to bring more restaurant concepts to Brookhaven to help build the community.
