the Owners

Originally from South Africa, Howard and Jenna originally came to the United States on tennis scholarships, where they teamed up as husband and wife before taking on the restaurant industry. The pair share a common passion for food, and both love to socialize and entertain, whether at their home in Dunwoody, or their own home away from home at 1920 Tavern. While they take great pride in the high-quality food and service provided at 1920, they are most proud of their two boys, Dylan and Aidan.


For Howard and Jenna, 1920 Tavern is a labor of love, evident in the attention to small details, the way they get to know their customers by name, the way they strive to create a friendly, comfortable environment for people to eat, drink and enjoy themselves. So far from their original homes, the couple understands the universal pull of comfort food and comfort spaces.

“We don’t have any immediate family here, and we see our clientele as our big extended family. The people of Roswell are nothing but amazing and have welcomed us in to their family.”

1920 Tavern is a celebration of the present, featuring modern interpretations of globally-influenced classics in the form of fresh-to-table creations. We hope you enjoy the

expression of our love in food. Join us for weekend brunch, lunch, or dinner.
