[UPDATE] Local Tin Drum Asian Kitchen Closes "Temporarily"

Tin Drum Asian Kitchen in Johns Creek has "temporarily closed."   The restaurant, located in Johns Creek Festival at 11160 Medlock Bridge Road, opened August 10, 2017, and within the past few days posted signage indicating that it is closed "temporarily." Despite indication of the closure being only temporary, the Johns Creeks location has been removed from the Tin Drum corporate website and its space is currently being marketed by Riverwood Properties, who owns Johns Creek Festival. (Tropical Smoothie Cafe, a corporate sibling of Tin Drum, also has a location in the same plaza and remains open.)

[CLOSURE ALERT] Chicken and the Egg Closed in Marietta

Chicken and the Egg on Whitlock Avenue in Marietta has closed. The restaurant, which chef Marc Taft opened August 2011, closed earlier this week. The restaurant occupied a 8,550 square foot space in the Burnt Hickory Village shopping center at 800 Whitlock Avenue.  Chicken and the Egg is the third Taft concept to close in recent months following the December 2018 closure of FEED Fried Chicken + Such at The Battery Atlanta and the May 2019 closure of Brine Seafood Shack at Avalon in Alpharetta.

Bits & Bites

Beloved chocolate and treat shop River Street Sweets will return to metro Atlanta with a location at The Battery Atlanta at SunTrust Park.  The new 1,500 square foot shop, expected to open later this fall, replaces Tomahawk Harley-Davidson, which closed in August at the mixed use development. The sweet shop will offer guests traditional favorites like its World Famous Pralines and a variety of chocolate treats including homemade fudge, candied nuts, bear claws and more.   Local Atlanta-area franchisees, Doug Hicks of Milton, Georgia and Jamie Wright, of East Cobb will operate the new shop.  Based in Savannah, River Street Sweets for nearly 20 years had a store on the second floor of Phipps Plaza in Buckhead, but it closed last March.
