Atlanta restaurants: Adele’s Cajun restaurant closes in downtown Roswell, while Greek pizza place and gyros prepare to open in Brookhaven

Cajun restaurant Adele’s closed on 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 on the restaurant’s website. Originally from New Orleans, Wegman worked as a chef in restaurants before moving to Roswell to open Adele’s in 2011. The restaurant name refers to Carr-Wegman’s middle name.

“After 10 great years, Adele will shut down permanently on November 14, 2021,” a statement provided to Eater said regarding the decision to shut down. “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 chunked crab cakes, mussels, crayfish stews, and fried oyster po’boys. The restaurant was a popular spot for New Orleans Saints fans who gathered for games and for weekend brunch, which included crayfish cookies, gravy, and donuts. [FB/Official]
