Mojave Latin American Restaurant Under New Ownership

Latin American restaurant Mojave, which Miguel and Rachel Ayoub opened five years ago at 6450 Powers Ferry Road NW in Sandy Springs, has been sold to Rainer Shaw and his wife, Lana Yakovleva.

Shaw previously served as regional operations director for Le Bilboquet in Buckhead, and as area director for AG Entertainment, managing operations for nightlife concepts such as Compound, Republic, Onyx, and Gold Room. Yakovleva, who serves as director of operations of First Fidelity Financial Group of Atlanta, also has extensive hospitality experience.

Christian Evans, who previously served as the executive chef of the now-shuttered Buckhead restaurant Dorian Gray, will serve as executive chef at Mojave. He also worked in the kitchens the Ritz Carlton Buckhead and the Intercontinental Buckhead as well as Nine Mile Station at Ponce City Market.

The 6,800-square-foot restaurant will make changes “that are designed to enhance the overall dining experience while maintaining the unique atmosphere that our patrons love,” according to a news release. Mojave will re-launch in late August.
