In addition to our normal news coverage, What Now Atlanta is tracking ways Atlanta’s businesses are adapting to the novel coronavirus and the challenges it brings to brick-and-mortars.
Star Provisions is the latest restaurant group to completely cease operations in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“As of now, Star Provisions, W.H. Stiles Fish Camp, Little Star Provisions, Floataway Café, and Bacchanalia are temporarily closed,” a banner atop the Star Provisions website states.
Owner Anne Quatrano issued a statement over the weekend on social media announcing the news.
To our Atlanta community: It’s been such a pleasure to serve you during these past few trying weeks, providing good, convenient, comforting food at a time when meals seem like just one more thing to worry about. We’ve been heartened by your support of us and our workers during this period when little else seems to make sense.
So it’s with heavy hearts that we’ve decided to suspend all Star Provisions operations—carry out and pick up—after today, Saturday, March 28. For the safety of our staff members and the safety of all Atlanta—which goes far beyond our friends and customers—we know this is the right thing to do, even though it’s also a hard thing to do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you for all your support, and we can’t wait to invite you back when things clear up. Let’s all hope that’s sooner rather than later. Take care of yourselves and those around you, The Star Provisions Family.
A timeline for reopening is TBD.
Star Provisions joins Ford Fry’s Rocket Farms Restaurants which at the end of last week shared similar news.
