Mary Hoopa’s House of Fried Chicken & Oysters is no longer in business.
For now, anyway.
The Hosea + 2nd restaurant from Robert Phalen, the proprietor of One Eared Stag, has in recent weeks been closing its doors without warning.
Mary Hoopa’s first debuted in February 2018, almost a year ago to the day.
Several patrons found the restaurant dark when they arrived to dine as early as mid-January, according to comments on the Mary Hoopa’s Facebook page.
“Are y’all open on Tuesdays?,” Nick Jones inquired on the restaurant’s page.
“Just stopped by and the place was closed. Door, website, and [Facebook] show open seven days week but Google says you’re closed. What’s the deal? Love the food and was just craving some of those boiled peanuts.”
Rachel Monroe said it “would be nice to see accurate business hours on your website and Facebook page. Tried to bring a group of 10 tonight and we were very disappointed that you’re closed.”
Nathan Bolster, a partner at ReDevStudio, the restaurant’s landlord, in a telephone conversation Wednesday told What Now Atlanta (WNA) Mary Hoopa’s could reopen its doors.
“We’ve been working with Mary Hoopa’s to make sure they have every opportunity to operate,” Bolster said.
“If they have decided to permanently close, we’re prepared to fill the space with one of several interested operators.”
Phalen did not immediately respond to WNA’s request for comment Wednesday.
