With the help of two new investors, the Edgar Allan Poe-themed restaurant Annabel Lee Tavern will reopen, said owner Kurt Bragunier, who had announced the Canton corner bar’s closure last month due to declining sales.
While Annabel Lee Tavern (601 S. Clinton St.) is currently closed, Bragunier hopes it will open in two to three weeks.
“The concept is staying the same,” Bragunier said. “We’re still going to be the Annabel Lee Tavern that everyone was used to.”
After word traveled of the planned closing, fans of Annabel Lee’s took to social media to express sympathy and gratitude for the restaurant’s 10 years of service.
