Pop’s Lobster Shack at Drift Fish House & Oyster Bar
Drift Fish House & Oyster Bar in East Cobb plans to host a pop-up called Pop’s Lobster Shack each weekend for the remainder of the summer serving a “New England-style” seafood menu. That menu includes a Maine lobster roll, oysters, and a fried shrimp platter. King of Pops popsicles will also be available for purchase. Pop’s is takeout only, with limited seating available on the patio once food is received. People can preorder online for pick up on Saturday or Sunday.
Petit Chou temporarily closes in Cabbagetown
The owners of Cabbagetown breakfast and brunch spot Petit Chou announced on the website and on Instagram that the restaurant would close for the next four weeks due to a surge in COVID-19 cases in Georgia. The post doesn’t mince words in the reasoning for the temporary closure, calling out Gov. Brian Kemp for “failing to impose” a statewide mask mandate and filing a lawsuit to block the citywide mandate issued by Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms earlier in this month. Petit Chou’s owners apparently own the building in which the restaurant resides.
“We are temporarily closed. Due to the current conditions of rising infections and that testing is now running 8 – 10 days behind, we expect that the actual number of infections to be much higher in the metro area,” the statement on the website reads. “Although most of our guests have followed recommended safety procedures, a number of our out of town patrons choose not to do so. With Governor Kemp’s Order failing to impose a mask requirement and purposely nullifying the City of Atlanta’s mask requirement, the situation is now untenable. We cannot justify the ongoing risk to our employees and regular customers.”
