According to Hopkins & Co. founder and co-CEO Gina Hopkins, the restaurant was originally designed with a long hallway that led to a private dining room area on the restaurant’s second floor above the kitchen, a design that was shut down due to fire permitting restrictions. “Shortly after we opened we realized we never addressed the hallway when we lost the upstairs and that we had too many hallways and too many walls,” Hopkins said in an email to What Now Atlanta.

 “We have wanted to redesign the space for a long time to have better flow and this time seemed right,” she said. “The new space is very open⁠—allowing for more cohesiveness, natural light, and better views of The Battery and Truist Park.”

Hopkins said that a new, redesigned menu will launch with C. Ellet’s reopening. The menu was designed just before the restaurant closed its doors on March 17 due to the novel coronavirus.

More details will be released as C. Ellet’s draws closer to its reopening date.
