Lenox Square management is pleased to announce the upcoming addition of Cousins Maine Lobster, home to the country’s best Maine lobster rolls. The franchise’s third sit-down restaurant, inspired by the popular food truck brand, will tempt lobster connoisseurs beginning late fall 2017. In a 1,150 square foot space across from Bantam + Biddy, the eatery will serve up the most succulent lobster dishes during lunch or dinner, including specialty menu items found only at brick-and-mortar locations.

“It’s an honor that the Cousins Maine Lobster team selected Lenox Square as their home for such an exciting milestone—both as the first East Coast location and the first in-mall dining experience for their successful and delicious brand,” said Carol Cox, area director of marketing and business development for Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza. “Not only will Cousins Maine Lobster further the options for our hungry shoppers, but it will also continue to enhance the atmosphere and shopping experience our guests have come to expect when visiting Lenox Square.”

Cousins Maine Lobster’s new Buckhead location will offer lobster lovers living around or visiting the community the ultimate indulgence with an authentic Maine seafood experience. Shark Tank’s most successful business entrepreneurs and founders of Cousins Maine Lobster, Sabin Lomac and Jim Tselikis, are slated to be on hand to celebrate the Lenox Square opening later this year. The dining destination will be owned and operated in Atlanta by Tony Harrison, local franchise owner and operator of two successful Cousins Maine Lobster Atlanta food trucks, voted No. 1 food truck in Atlanta from Atlanta Magazine in 2016 and the Atlanta Street Food Festival in 2015.

In addition to Cousins Maine Lobster, Lenox Square’s list of retailers continues to expand with Lush Cosmetics and Cellairis this fall. Bath & Body Works and Abercrombie & Fitch also recently introduced its new store renovations, G-Star RAW opened doors at its new location and Standard and The North Face will welcome shoppers just in time for the holiday season.  

This October, Lush Cosmetics will open a new 2,685 square foot shop on the Upper Level across from Macy’s. Designed with the customer in the mind, the store will have more room to play and interact with the brand’s ethical, fresh and handmade bath, body, hair and skincare products.

Shoppers will soon have access to stylish cell phone cases with the anticipated opening of Cellairis in September, to be located in the Lenox Fashion Café at a new 320 square foot location.
