Atlanta-based Tin Drum Asiacafe has closed its north Buckhead location on Roswell Road. The fast casual Asian eatery opened in mid 2012 at Roswell-Wieuca Shopping Center, replacing what had been a struggling unit of the now nearly defunct salad joint, Doc Green's.
Sources say the restaurant closed after dinner service on Saturday with a sign posted in the window indicating the closure is for a "renovation." The location has already been wiped from the corporate website and I highly doubt it will ever reopen.
Roswell-Wieuca Shopping Center is also home to Goldberg's Bagel Co. & Deli, Cheeseburger Bobby's, Willy's Mexicana Grill, Pita Grill and a freestanding Arby's. Without a doubt, Goldberg's and Willy's are the best performing restaurants in the center
I foresee more rough waters ahead for the Tin Drum as it continues to expand more than perhaps it should and or is ready for. Currently the chain has 11 locations open in Georgia with a twelfth coming soon to The Village at Druid Hills, at the the corner of Briarcliff and North Druid Hills Roads.
I have been working on a special post about Tin Drum and hope to publish it soon.
