From : http://www.tonetoatl.com

Popular Midtown eatery Cowtippers Steaks & Spirits will close at the end of business on Sunday, January 28.  The restaurant, located on Piedmont Avenue near its intersection with Monroe Drive, has been in business since 1993.  Cowtippers, like a number of other in-town eateries, is owned by Metrotainment Cafes.  While a representative for the restaurant confirmed the closure, they did not shed any light on the reasoning or timing of it. 
The space that Cowtippers has occupied for nearly 25 years was home to an outpost of the Old Hickory House previously. Fulton county property records indicate that through an LLC, Jeff Landau, founder and CEO of Metrotainment Cafes, currently owns the restaurant's property.  The building, which is roughly 4,800 square feet, dates back to 1940 and sits on about a third of an acre, according to Fulton county records.  The records indicate that "TEN TWENTY THREE JUNIPER ST ASSOC LLC," headquartered at 1119 Logan Circle, where Metrotainment Cafes is headquartered as well, paid $1.2 million for the property in 2002
