Restaurateur Justin Anthony has kept himself busy over the past few months with the opening of Cape Dutch late last year , Biltong Bar in Ponce City Market earlier this year , and now the launch of a new concept coming this month.
Yebo Beach Haus, a spinoff of South African spot Yebo, which closed in Phipps Plaza earlier this week, will open to the public at 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, for dinner.
Housed at 111 West Paces Ferry Road in the f ormer home of Coast, one of the many Here to Serve restaurants closed in 2015 , Yebo Beach Haus will serve a South African-American fusion menu featuring items including shrimp peri-peri tacos, bunny chow sliders and tomato and watermelon bruschetta, grilled swordfish sandwiches and boerewors meatballs. The restaurant will also feature craft cocktails and a full wine and local beer list.
The decor, arranged by Anthony's wife Kelly, "draws inspiration from the Hamptons and Californian beach influences," according to a press release, including an outdoor patio, white-washed walls, dark cherry wood-stained floors and driftwood décor elements.
Lunch service will follow soon after opening, and the Yebo Beach Haus will also serve brunch Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
