The General Muir opened its Sandy Springs doors over the weekend, the Jewish deli and restaurant announced on social media. The General Muir is situated in the City Springs development (home to eateries like The Select and Nam Kitchen), at 6405 Blue Stone Rd #240, and is operating on a limited schedule amid the pandemic. If you missed the weekend debut, you’ll have to wait until Wednesday, January 13 with on-going hours of operation Wednesday through Sunday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. until further notice.
“Ready or not, here we come,” the restaurant wrote on its Facebook page Friday. “…Please note that at both locations we require guests to wear masks at all times that they are not seated.” Owned by Rye Restaurants — chef Todd Ginsberg, Jennifer and Ben Johnson, and Shelley Sweet — The General Muir City Springs was supposed to open its doors early last year but was delayed due to the health crisis.
“Thank you for your patience and kind words of support during this much-delayed process,” the restaurant wrote. “It feels kind of crazy to be opening a restaurant at this time, but it also feels great to birth something after so much loss this past year.”
The General Muir’s new outpost is the second for the company, joining the original in Emory Point — which first debuted in 2013. It is a sister restaurant to a portfolio of Rye Restaurants concepts: Fred’s Meat and Bread, TGM Bread, Yalla, and Wood’s Chapel BBQ. In May 2019 the company shuttered The Canteen, a micro food hall in Midtown.
