Souper Jenny at the History Center
The newest Souper Jenny is set to open on April 4 at the new 4,017-square-foot space at the Atlanta History Center’s expanded bookstore and gift shop. Actress-turned-cook Jenny Levison closed her original soup and sandwich shop on East Andrews Drive on March 26. “The vision is the same for Souper Jenny,” Levison said in a press release. “The menu will be the same, and we will be open for Sunday brunch.” The new cafe-bookstore can be accessed through its own West Paces Ferry Road entrance or the History Center’s main entrance, customers can park for free in the deck, and museum admission is not required for dining or shopping. 130 W. Paces Ferry Road N.W., Atlanta. 404-237-7687, souperjennyatl.com.
H. Harper Station closing April 1
Word came from owner and whiskey expert Jerry Slater that H. Harper Station in Reynoldstown would close its doors after service on April 1. One of Atlanta’s most beloved and important cocktail bars was a fixture of the restaurant Slater opened in late 2010 in the old Atlanta & West Point Railroad Freight Depot on Memorial Drive and an undeveloped section of the Beltline. “After a great five-year run, we feel the model is no longer sustainable,” Slater said in a statement. “We wish the best to the new tenant and the neighborhood they will service.” 904 Memorial Drive S.E., Atlanta. 678-732-0415, hharperstation.com.
