Beth McKibben is the editor and staff reporter for Eater Atlanta and has been covering food and cocktails locally and regionally for 12 years.

Beginning Wednesday, July 3, a new restaurant pop-up takes over the kitchen at the SOS Tiki Bar in Decatur: Sweet E’s Caribbean-Southern-style barbecue, seafood, and comfort food. Sweet E’s, run by former SOS bar manager Ean Bancroft, began popping up around the Atlanta area shortly after Bancroft left the Decatur bar in February.

Bancroft says to expect quite a bit of seafood on the menu, along with dishes from specific Caribbean islands, weekly specials, and late night snacks on Fridays and Saturdays after 11 p.m.

“You’ll find a mix of Caribbean favorites such as smoked chicken with jerk marinade, whole fish, and pork steak with Southern-style fixings and tropical fare,” Victory Brand restaurant group’s director of operations Chasity West explains of the menu. “SOS is excited to watch Ean grow in his own business and excited to help out an old family member.”

As for how long Sweet E’s will stick around at the tiki bar, West hopes Bancroft stays for “as long as he wants” but, it’s still to be determined.

Take a look at the menu:

Chef Jarrett Stieber and his pop-up Eat Me Speak Me depart the SOS kitchen after a two-year residency on Saturday, June 29. Stieber opens his restaurant Little Bear in the Summerhill neighborhood later this year.

Sweet E’s beginning July 3: Wednesday and Thursday, 6 p.m. to 12 a.m.; Friday and Saturday, 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. with late night food from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.
