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.
Dantanna’s has closed its downtown restaurant, situated inside the CNN Center, after 12 years in business.
The restaurant and sports bar, at One CNN Center Ste. 269, announced the news on its Facebook page Tuesday.
“Due to the societal changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the very difficult decision to close our downtown location in CNN Center,” Co-Owners David Clapp and Jay Kazlow wrote on the social media site.
“After more than a decade of success, serving old and new friends, we do not feel our business model of hosting large parties and groups is sustainable, at least in the foreseeable future. We will be focusing all our efforts on our original Dantanna’s location in Buckhead at the Shops Around Lenox and hope to see you there very soon (we are open for dine-in, patio seating, and takeout).
Dantanna’s, as with other Atlanta businesses, has been closed since mid-March to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.
“We want to sincerely thank you, and the wonderful people at Turner Properties, for your support of Dantanna’s Downtown over the last decade, and for your ongoing support as we all rebuild together. Stay safe and healthy.”
