City Springs Is Getting The General Muir in Early-2020

Newly-formed "Rye Restaurants" will open the Jewish-style deli in a corner space of the Sandy Springs development.

Todd Ginsberg, Jennifer and Ben Johnson, and Shelley Sweet, the partners behind Atlanta restaurants Wood’s Chapel BBQ (2019), The Canteen (2017), TGM Bread (2016), Fred’s Meat & Bread (2014), Yalla (2014), and The General Muir (2013) will open a second location of The General Muir in Sandy Springs.

Slated to debut in late-2019, early-2020, The General Muir will be situated in the new City Springs development, in a 3,100-square-foot corner space, at 1 Galambos Way, according to a press release Tuesday.

“Since we opened The General Muir at Emory Point in 2013, one of the most common requests we have had is that we open a location in Sandy Springs,” Ginsberg said in the release.

“With the opening of City Springs—with City Hall, the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center, a conference center, and more—we feel like we’ve found another perfect home for The General Muir, where we can support a community from breakfast through dinner and for special events, just as we do at the original location.”

With the addition of the latest restaurant, the partners have formed the parent company “Rye Restaurants.”

West Egg Café (2004), a partnership between the Johnsons and Sweet, while not technically a member of Rye Restaurants, continues to operate with the oversight of the Rye Restaurants Director of Operations Liz Molfese Roberts and Manager of Operations Lillian Greene, as well as Chef Andrew Smith (at the helm of West Egg since 2015) and General Manager Paul Cooper.
