For the last four years you could find yourself a good time at Wade’s Fine Eatery and Good Time Emporium at 1061 Concord Road in Smyrna. Unfortunately, the business shuttered, just this year, in the middle of August without announcing its closure. Good news can still be had, because according ToNeTo Atlanta, we won’t have to bear the vacancy much longer.

Signage has been posted on the shuttered storefront, indicating a new restaurant, Ben’s Seafood & Bar, will open soon in the space. Ben’s Crab Smyrna Corp, the business registered to the address, was formed in June of this year. Ivan Raintung is listed as the registered agent, although we were unable to reach him at the time of publication.

Raintung is the restaurateur behind local establishments like Mulan Asian Cuisine and Moto Asian Cuisine. He has resided in the Atlanta area for almost two decades.

No word yet on when exactly ‘soon’ is or what Ben’s menu will look like. You’ll certainly want to check back in with us for updates on this story, and in the meantime, check out Raintung’s other eateries.
