    It was really good and really unique – therefore I knew it was destined to close.

    When Atlantans (especially suburban ones) have the choice between good and unique or a Cracker Barrel, they will choose Cracker Barrel.

    Very sorry to read this, but I am not surprised. I wanted it to succeed, but it was inconsistent all the way around. Hope they do better in their next venture.
