Smyrna staple Muss & Turner’s will make its Marietta debut next week. The restaurant’s second location will begin a soft-opening period at 1205 Johnson Ferry Road, #101 on Monday, March 20, according to a Friday announcement. Grand-opening festivities are expected for the first week of April.
M&T East Cobb replaces Common Quarter, which operated under the same Unsukay Concepts umbrella but closed in February. “While Common Quarter is beloved by many, at the end of the day, the restaurant was ultimately the vision and DNA of ex-partner Chris Talley’s,” Unsukay co-founder Ryan Turner said when the change was announced.
While operating with the same name, the new Muss & Turner’s boasts some features that set it apart from the Smyrna original. The menu will be similar, with some small modifications, and the bar will serve a long list of cocktails, craft beer, and wine. Counter service will be available during the day, and full table service will kick in for dinner.
Design elements at the new restaurant include two large murals painted by artist and M&T Smyrna server Rachel Bongard. Ten synchronized televisions will play “throwback music videos” from 1976 to 1996 to create a “nostalgic ambiance.”
M&T East Cobb’s regular hours will be Sunday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. See the opening menu below.
