The Pig & The Pint has closed in College Park

College Park restaurant The Pig & The Pint closed its doors over the weekend after more than four years in College Park.

Located at 1583 Virginia Ave. the restaurant was known as a "modern meat and three" and offered Southern staples on its lunch and dinner menus.

Executive chef and co-owner Michael Broom addressed the closure via an emailed statement to the AJC.

"My business partner, Dennis McGuire, and I made the difficult decision to close The Pig & the Pint on Friday. We can't thank all of our neighbors and the Atlanta community as a whole enough for the support and great memories over the last four years. We've had a blast serving you, but decided it's time to move on to the next chapter."

Before opening The Pig & The Pint, Broom worked at restaurants throughout the southeast, including Atlanta's City Grill and Le Giverny Bistro.

Maguire, previously ran the East Point location of Thumbs Up diner and worked as general manager at Park 75 in the Four Seasons Hotel and Vino! in Buckhead.
