Dogwood Restaurant, the upscale Southern farm-to-table eatery across from Bank of America Plaza on Peachtree Street has closed, according to the restaurant’s publicist. Owners Shane Touhy and Scott Black (left) told the staff after service on Saturday night that the restaurant would not reopen.
Prior to opening Dogwood, Touhy was the chef at the Blue Ridge Grill in Buckhead. Here’s the official statement:
Dogwood Restaurant, located at 565 Peachtree Street, Atlanta, Ga., is closed as of Tuesday, June 14, 2011.
While Dogwood has been overwhelmed by the support of loyal customers, the current economic environment and lower than anticipated sales have led ownership to make this unfortunate decision.
Dogwood is appreciative of the remarkable service and support offered by its team of employees and put forth by all of its partners and vendors. The team remains proud of the impression Dogwood made on the Atlanta dining scene.
No word on what will replace Dogwood in the lovely, bi-level dining room with an open kitchen, soaring ceilings and an upstairs dining loft.
