Doc Chey’s Noodle House

I photographed Doc Chey’s Noodle House off of N. Highland Ave. in Atlanta for the Virginia Highlands Patch newspaper on Thursday, August 18, 2011. Owned by Rich Chey, the restaurant opened in 1997. Chey modeled his noodle house after ones found in the Northeast’s China Towns such as New York and Boston. Rich’s motto is let’s bring noodles to the people. These are my favorite images from the restaurant.

Doc Chey's Noodle House is located at 1424 N. Highland Ave. and offers patrons table and noodle bar seating, an outdoor patio and a selection of beers and wines.
