Fifth Group Restaurants has bought back Sala Mexican restaurant on North Highland Avenue in Virginia Highland, as posted on the Morningside Lenox Park yahoo group by Kim Nuckols. her full post is below: 

Spoke with a friend/contact over at Fifth Group Restaurants today (the Marketing Director) and they have bought back Sala, and he did confirm its temporary closing.  It will reopen, but not as Sala. It might remain Mexican, although on a more casual basis, perhaps a taqueria-style. However, they have not made any official decisions as to food genre and would love to hear from the neighborhood as to what you want. Maybe Mexican, Pizza, American, bar, casual, etc. Feel free to send me your thoughts and I am happy to compile them and share with Fifth Group. They are excited about bringing in what the neighborhood wants!! 

You can email Kimberly at if you would like her to share your ideas for our neighborhood!
