C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar- Roswell has closed its doors, the latest metro Atlanta restaurant to close amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Opened in 2016 by co-owners Rich Clark and Jon Schwenk, the restaurant, located at 12040 Etris Road, initially started out as C&S Chowder House and rebranded in 2019 to their original C&S concept, C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar.
“We’ve been in the business for a long time and it’s never easy to make this kind of decision, but due to the unfortunate series of events we know this is ultimately what’s best,” Clark said in a prepared statement. “Although the situation is less than ideal, we could not be more thankful for the support we’ve received from our cherished staff, neighbors and loyal patrons throughout this journey and we look forward to the exciting chapters to come.”
C&S Restaurant Group's other concepts, C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar- Vinings and Hugo's Oyster Bar, will remain open. The two eateries were among the first to offer dine-in service after restaurants were permitted to reopen their dining rooms on April 27.
The restaurant group is also set to open a C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar in the Sandy Springs' Modera complex this fall.
C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar's Roswell location is the latest in a growing list of food and beverage establishments to close their doors amid the coronavirus pandemic. Other recent closures include the Emory Village location on Lucky's Burger and Brew, Anne and Bill's Restaurant in Forest Park and the Sandy Springs location of Cafe Sunflower.
