Original flagship to close one week before more expanded location opens half a mile away.
Final preparations are underway in moving Souper Jenny’s flagship to the Atlanta History Center.
The restaurant is slated to open on Saturday, April 2, 2016, one week after Jenny Levison will close her long-time original Souper Jenny location on East Andrews Drive this Saturday, March 26, 2016.
The concept will share an new 4,017-square-foot space with the Atlanta History Center’s newly expanded bookstore and gift shop. The release describes the space as a “chic, funky local café and coffee shop,” which will “reflect Levison’s unique dining style, décor, and destination dining experience.”
True to Souper Jenny standards, the menu will feature fresh soups, salads and sandwiches that change daily according to what is fresh in the local market. Additionally, guests may enjoy dinners to-go, organic juices and gluten-free desserts from Juicy Jenny, as well as a full coffee bar featuring Batdorf & Bronson coffees and sweets from local bakers.
Good news for Atlantans missing Levinson’s recently shuttered Buckhead restaurant Cafe Jonah: The same popular $20 brunch formerly featured at the eatery will be served on Sundays at the new Souper Jenny location.
The new location will seat nearly double the number of people than Souper Jenny’s previous Buckhead store.
The restaurant/bookstore will be open seven days a week and offer guests free parking. Museum admission will not be required for dining or shopping.
