Cabbagetown restaurant Mouth of the South appears to be shuttering this week after less than a year.
Eater Atlanta first reported that the restaurant closed over the weekend, but is reopening Friday for a farewell party.
The restaurant announced the party on its Facebook page:
@motsatlanta will be having a final CLOSING party this Friday 6/21 from 7pm - LATE. We want to thank each and every one of you who were a part of our journey along the way 🙏🏻❤️
We’ll see you Friday, #Cabbagetown!
The eatery opened in August 2018 at 186 Carroll St., in the space previously occupied by pizzeria Cabbage Pie.
The menu featured salads, wings, barbecue and a BLT sandwich for vegans.
Steven Lingenfelter and Laurie Dominguez of Illegal Food were originally set to design the menu, but they parted ways with the restaurant before it opened.
In a January 2019 review, AJC food editor Ligaya Figueras said Mouth of the South’s drinks eclipsed its food: “Food and drink are not of the same equation at this establishment. Whether intended or not, drinks are the draw at Mouth of the South.”
The AJC has reached out to Mouth of the South for more details.
