MF Buckhead to close after service tonight

MF Buckhead will close after dinner service tonight, a representative from the restaurant has confirmed. “It was a difficult decision,” said Sa Kinjo. “We had filed Chapter 11 and had hoped to work through this, but a judge has just signed the papers on Chapter 7 for a full liquidation.”

Kinjo said her cousins Chris Kinjo and Alex Kinjo, the principal partners in the restaurant, were unable to work out a workable payment structure with their landlord at Terminus Atlanta following the Chapter 11 filing.

But fans of the restaurant’s high-end sushi need not despair. The family is working with a new partner and hopes to begin building a sushi bar in a smaller Buckhead space as soon as possible.

“We’re really hoping to set up operations within two or three months,” said Kinjo. “But it will be in a smaller space, more in keeping with today’s economy.”

MF Buckhead opened to national acclaim in 2007 and earned a 5-star rating from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
