Cape Dutch, the South African steakhouse concept from True Story Brands, will close this month after four years.

The restaurant will shutter Jan. 25 at 1782 Cheshire Bridge Road NE, with plans to reopen in a new Atlanta location in the future.

“We are honored to have been a part of the Morningside community and have truly enjoyed serving our guests,” True Story Brands owner Justin Anthony in a prepared statement. “As the doors to our Cheshire Bridge location close, we invite guests to stay tuned as we’re actively seeking out a new home for Cape Dutch and look forward to serving the Atlanta community again very soon.”

Cape Dutch, which opened in fall 2015, utilized the braai, an open-flame, wood-fired grill technique used in South Africa, for many items on its menu.

Chef Philippe Haddad will continue to provide catering service after the restaurant’s closure.

True Story Brands restaurants include Biltong Bar, which opened in Ponce City Market in 2016 and in Shops Buckhead Atlanta in late 2018 and is slated to open a new location in Avalon in Alpharetta this year10 Degrees South, and Yebo Beach Haus, which is moving to Andrews Square from its current Buckhead location this year.
