Table 1280 has closed.

I read somewhere else, AJC blog maybe that the closing was just temporary while the ASO was on break.

Looks like Franco's Italian Tavern in Roswell is closed.  Tried calling to order a take out pizza tonight and the phone wasn't working.  So I drove across the street and all dark.  Too bad.  I really liked their pies, but must confess, I've ordered more from Jet's Pizza than anyone else lately.

Probably was just a matter of time.  Franco's was so good when they initially opened but then started have serious problems with consistency and went downhill from there.  Even more strange was the fact that the owner was always there during the slide, it's not like the place was being run by an absentee owner.  I think they must have had massive turnover in the kitchen and just didn't have any attention to detail...  We became so frustrated that we had to stop going.

Agree 103 percent. So much potential, but they did everything they could be sabotage themselves.

That's part of why we stopped getting pies there as much.  The quality was up and down, while the service was never fast.  They could have really helped themselves out if they delivered too.

Still Waters restaurant in Snellville has closed, it was destined to close.  Bad business model, in a location that at least 6 other restaurant ideas had failed, and some stubborn but very moral owners, (no beer, no wine etc.)

Very surprised it lasted as long as it did. I went several times and was underwhelmed.

They and their sister restaurant, the alleged gastropub, were both just a notch above average at best. Gave it a try, but it wasn't good or close enough to give me any reason to return. I also remember the booth setup, relative to where the TVs were, was not well thought out. I also only made it when the Vito Goldberg's guy was cheffing. Never tried the new guy.
