Magnolia Room plans to open Tuesday.
The wait is finally over! Barring any crazy mishaps, Magnolia Room Cafeteria expects to "soft open" this upcoming Tuesday, January 31st. The restaurant, which represents the reincarnation of sorts of the beloved Tucker S&S Cafeteria, has been delayed a number of times as the owner worked to rectify issues and perfect the restaurant and its menu.
"Mr. Louis," the restaurant's owner, is thankful for the support and patience of the neighborhood, the staff and the City of Tucker for their patience over the past few months.
The restaurant is located in the City of Tucker, on Hugh Howell Road, in the Shops at Heritage Place shopping center.
An official announcement came earlier today that the restaurant will host a "preview week" next week.
"Our final health and building inspections are on Monday January 30th, so tentatively our doors will OPEN on TUESDAY January 31st. We intend to be very close to the full variety you expect from us, but please understand we want to be CERTAIN every dish is perfect. So please understand if your favorite is not yet on our menu.
Preview Week Serving Hours: Lunch 11-2 Dinner 4:30-7:30"
Although I have toured the restaurant and witnessed the themed Magnolia artwork, custom tables and new layout, Mr. Louis has asked that I not share any interior photos until opening day.
The menu is complete and I can share with you that for $8.50, patrons will be able to select an entree, two sides, bread and a beverage (excluding milk) for only $8.50.
This past October, Tucker residents got their first taste of the menu at Magnolia Room with a number of options at Taste of Tucker. Magnolia Room was by far the most popular restaurant at the event, selling over 500 "tastes." The crowd favorite and my personal favorite was the "baked eggplant," a feature of the restaurant's menu. Other upgrades include Rainbow Trout Almondine and Black Angus Chopped Sirloin Steak. Similar to the S&S, not all menu items will be available every day.
Are you excited for the new Magnolia Room Cafeteria to open? What menu item are you most looking forward to? How many times have you stopped by the restaurant inquiring about when it would open? (You can remain anonymous)
