Agnes and Muriel's: 'CLOSED UNTILL...LLL...LLLL FURTHER NOTICE'

Agnes & Muriel's which relocated to Buckhead this past February is apparently closed. Driving past the eatery earlier this afternoon Repeat Atlanta noticed the above sign and attempted to locate additional information. Calls to the eatery went unanswered while their website says nothing to indicate anything one way or the other. Agnes & Muriel's was an institution in Midtown and it was definitely a tough task to retain their midtown clientele while in the busier Buckhead area. The eatery was listed a few weeks ago as being for sale on The Shumacher’s Group website and was said to be for sale for “motherhood” reasons. The site today states there is a new "Drastic Lower Price", but no official word on whether it will be sold or simply closed. It would be sad if it is closed for good as it would have been a good alternative to The Flying Biscuit and J. Christopher's. Repeat Atlanta!

They were dumb to move in the first place. They really had a nice, unique thing going at the original location. Another example of stupidity in Atlanta's sordid restaurant scene.

Sad...another Atlanta institution bites the dust. Unfortunately, the service and food denegrated over the past few years. Can't say I'm surprised.

Typical mismanagement from someone that is clueless. She will never sell it. I did not have the chance to go in the new one but judging by the pictures, what in the world was she thinking???? All character was lost. The original owner had a great concept, cool idea and it worked. The new owner is a fool. She ruined what was a great little midtown institution. I have many great memories of me in 1995-98 going for brunch on a Sunday after a night of clubbing. Moved in 1998 and went back in 2004, didn't seem quite the same. Then I heard it was moving and knew it was done for.... hence it is closed and for sale. I would buy just the name if it was for sale, the location she can keep...what a fool!
