Joint Midtown restaurants Madre + Mason and Urban Cannibals have permanently closed and will soon reopen as 5th Street Tapas, at 366 5th Street.
After the sudden shuttering of their Tipple and Rose tea shop in December 2019, Co-Owners Doria Roberts and Calavino Donati announced plans to relocate to New Jersey but said that Madre + Mason and Urban Cannibals, which were under one roof, would remain open.
“Madre + Urban Cannibals are staying put and will be employee-run as they have been for the last six months and, yes, we’re looking to duplicate those concepts in New Jersey once we secure funding for them so there’s no timeline,” Roberts shared with What Now Atlanta in an email late last year.
Final Facebook posts and social activity for both restaurants appear to have been made on Dec. 24, 2019, however.
Meanwhile, Hispanic and American-infused tapas eatery 5th Street Tapas is in permitting to open in the neighborhood space.
According to 5th Street Tapas’ Facebook page which began posting Jan. 26, Atlantans can expect “…an exciting and spirited atmosphere.”
“We set the scene with a Hispanic infused Urban American menu, offering a happy hour, hookah and welcoming all bookings,” according to the Facebook page.
“Come, watch the game on of our HD TVs or enjoy a delicious cocktail from our eclectic list of beverages.”
An early spring 2020 opening is expected.
