Jennifer Johnson, a former associate at King & Spalding, opened The General Muir with her husband Ben and two partners in January, according to the Saporta Report.
From the full story, which includes a video interview:
The General Muir opened in January 2013 at Emory Point, a new retail and residential
development directly across from the Centers for Disease Control. The
restaurant is a gourmet take on a not-so-typical New York Jewish deli,
named after the ship that brought Jennifer’s mother and grandparents,
all holocaust survivors, to New York in 1949.
Jennifer’s dramatic career jump from practicing law to opening her
own café came with very different responsibilities, but proved to be
just as challenging and exciting.
“It is never the same thing every day. You are always faced with new
challenges,” she said. “It’s very lively. You really feel like you are
part of a vibrant community.
