Owners of Atlantic announced to the restaurant's Facebook page yesterday that the eatery will not be reopening.
"Over the last 14 weeks, together, we’ve faced some of the most difficult challenges of this generation. Navigating this storm has been tough for Jen and myself. I know it’s been tough for you, too. We’ve made courageous choices and difficult decisions we never thought we’d make.
It’s with both a saddened and strong heart, I bring this message:
Atlantic will not return for service in the Starland District."
In the heartfelt post the owners thanked the restaurant's patrons and the community and said the decision to close was not an easy one. Many commented expressing their disappointment.
"The decision was not an easy or likeable one to make. All of us witnessed many changes within our families, neighborhoods and our city; we’ve all made effort to make lemonade from lemons."
