Rose + Rye closes in Midtown and other dining news from the week

These are the stories that created a buzz on the metro Atlanta dining scene this week:

Rose + Rye has closed following the bankruptcy of the “castle” mansion at 87 15th St. NE in Midtown that housed it, Atlanta Business Chronicle reports. The property is owned by MLAC Castle Atlanta LLC.

The Castle was designed and built in 1909-1910 by wealthy inventor and businessman Ferdinand McMillan, who called his retirement residence Fort Peace.

Later, it became a bohemian hub for the burgeoning Atlanta arts community.

When Rose + Rye opened in 2017, it served a menu of “refined American fare with a global reach.”

It received a two-star review from the AJC in 2018.
