About a year and a half after opening its doors in Midtown, Hi-Five Diner announced it will close at the end of this weekend.

The eatery, located at 903 Peachtree St. N.E., was previously known as Villains sandwich shop before owner Alex Brounstein (who also owns Grindhouse Killer Burgers) changed the name and concept in early 2015.

The closure was addressed on the restaurant’s Facebook page, acknowledging that the space provided limitations during the busy brunch period. Brounstein said he is looking for a new home for Hi-Five:

As for what will move into the space, What Now Atlanta reports that “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star Raymond “Benzino” Scott is planning to relocate his Benzino’s Crab Shack, which opened in Marietta in 2015, to the spot. No opening date has been announced.
