[Stop Your Kvetching!] The General Muir to Open Saturday in Sandy Springs

It's been a tough year for restaurants, for hotels, for medical professionals... for everyone.  Thankfully, we have a bit of good news to share to start off 2021.  The Sandy Springs location of The General Muir is slated to open Saturday at City Springs.  ToNeTo Atlanta first reported the planned expansion of the intown favorite in August 2019.  The new, roughly 3,100 square foot restaurant is located along Johnson Ferry Road and includes both inside and outside dining. 

An email sent late Friday read in part: 

"We'll open our location at City Springs, in Sandy Springs, from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, January 9 and Sunday, January 10.  Given the limited seating capacity during the ongoing pandemic, we will seat by reservation only. Takeout is also available, with online ordering for contactless pickup, or ordering by phone. On Wednesday, January 13 we'll roll out our regular hours -- 8am-8pm, Wed-Sun."

The General Muir gets its name from the U.S. refugee transport ship that brought co-owner Jennifer Johnson’s mother and grandparents—Holocaust survivors—to New York, after World War II.  The restaurant's menu features many classic deli items such as a corned beef Reuben, pastrami sandwich, and a burger stack, as well as popular breakfast fare such as bagels, omelettes and pecan crusted french toast, among other offerings.   

The expansion is the latest venture for Chef Todd Ginsberg, Shelley Sweet and husband and wife Jennifer and Ben Johnson, who collectively own Rye Restaurants.   The restaurant group includes the original The General Muir and TGM Bread at Emory Point, Fred’s Meat & Bread and Yalla at Krog Street Market, and Wood’s Chapel BBQ in Summerhill. Sweet and the Johnsons are also partners in West Egg CafĂ© in West Midtown.  The group closed their micro food hall The Canteen in Midtown this past May. 

In City Springs, The General Muir joins several other restaurants already open in the mixed-use development including The Select, Flower Child, Nam Kitchen, and Cafe Vendome.
