Cajun restaurant Adele’s closed November 14 after a decade on Canton Street in historic downtown Roswell. Owners Marc Wegman and Ruth Carr-Wegman made the announcement on Facebook, followed by a statement posted to the restaurant’s website. A native of New Orleans, Wegman worked as a chef in restaurants there before moving to Roswell to open Adele’s in 2011. The restaurant’s name references Carr-Wegman’s middle name.

“After 10 great years, Adele’s will permanently close on November 14, 2021,” a statement provided to Eater regarding the decision to close reads. “The friendships made along the way are too numerous to count and words cannot express our gratitude for the incredible support and patronage received.”

Adele’s was known in Roswell for serving dishes influenced by New Orleans and Cajun cuisine, like lump crab cakes, mussels, crawfish etouffee, and fried oyster po’boys. The restaurant was a popular spot for New Orleans Saints fans to gather for games and for weekend brunch, which included crawfish biscuits and gravy and beignets. [FB/Official]
