Metrotainment Cafes, the parent company of both restaurants, sold the properties to developer Middle Street Partners back in March. Shortly after the sale, Middle Street Partners released renderings for the dual skyscrapers that are slated to be built where Einstein’s and Joe’s on Juniper now stand.

In a statement provided to What Now Atlanta, Metrotainment Cafes confirmed that Einstein’s is now officially closed for regular dining. “The restaurant and space will be available for private events until October for those seeking spaces for rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions, corporate events, and more,” the statement read. “Additionally, Joe’s on Juniper will remain open until October, allowing guests to enjoy the summer season on the famous patio in Midtown.”

The news comes as a blow to Einstein’s and Joe’s on Juniper loyalists, many of whom have been frequenting both restaurants for decades. But as the old saying goes, every cloud has a silver lining. Wedding season is upon us, and for those who want to send Einstein’s out with a bang, you can seal the deal with a kiss in your favorite restaurant, before we all move on to a towering new chapter.
