Closed for Business: Basis New American

A little over a week ago, seven-year-old Basis New American succumbed to summer and a slow economy.

Owner Steve Short details the rise and fall of his once-popular Moon Valley eatery on his catering company's website; he continues to operate Atlasta Catering and Event Concepts.

In addition to "modest" sales that were not enough to "adequately support the staff," Short factors in a landlord that wouldn't compromise on rent, a property manager whom he considers "an adversary instead of an ally," and his own personal desire to spend more time with his children.
