In July 2019, Rose and Crown Tavern announced its temporary closure to make way for a new mixed-use development from Greystar Development Group of Atlanta. The closure was deemed temporary as the restaurant would reopen in the 578,000 square-foot complex, which in addition to a 10,000 square-foot retail component includes residential apartments, Elan at Powers Ferry, and senior living units, Overture at Powers Ferry.

A permit application filed with Cobb County indicates Rose and Crown is now taking steps towards reopening.

Renovations to the space at 1935 Powers Ferry Road are estimated at $1,450,000 and indicate the eatery, founded by Miguel Ayoub in 2010, is on track to open its doors once again. An early report from East Cobb News shares plans indicated the restaurant would operate out of 6,000 square-foot space in the development.

In the time since Rose and Crown Tavern closed, Ayoub and his wife Rachel, who is an interior designer by trade, opened a second eatery. Mojave, a Latin American restaurant, is located at 6450 Powers Ferry Road and is described as an “oasis” and a homecoming.

We reached out to Ayoub for comment but did not immediately hear back, so Rose and Crown’s reopening timeline currently remains unknown.

Correction: A pervious version of the story erroneously stated the building permit was filed with the City of Atlanta. It was filed with Cobb County.
