Ryan and Todd carefully blended familiar brand elements with creative new touches, sourced locally and reflective of the East Cobb neighborhood. The kitchen was massively expanded to include an open concept – surrounded by the iconic Muss & Turner’s red counter – that includes the addition of two Big Green Eggs. We glassed in the existing patio area to expand climate-controlled year-round seating within the restaurant. The bar remains, however we repurposed the shutter décor from the ceiling to surround and enclose the area to create an adult-centric zone.
Two interior walls are covered with hand-painted murals by local artist and M&T Smyrna server, Rachel Bongard. One, a 20-ft black and white acrylic painted mural featuring funky takes on menu items and ingredients. The other, a 30×10-ft color-filled typography chalk menu with pop culture influences. Additional artwork features a giclee canvas collage adorned with photographs taken by Michael Mussman – Todd Mussman’s brother. Ten synchronized TVs linked to a sound system will play throwback Top 40 music videos from 1976-1996 for a nostalgic dining experience.
