Will 280 Elizabeth bring MF Sushi back to Atlanta? Per a post on their website from just over two years ago, the concept by the Kinjo brothers is set to open in the mixed-use development in 2014. Multiple industry insiders have reported recently that MF is still in the works. Update: This has been confirmed.
Some background: Chris Kinjo opened MF Houston in Texas last year. The brothers' two Atlanta concepts, MF Sushi and MF Buckhead, closed in November 2011 and February 2012 respectively. MF Buckhead's space in Terminus was recently replaced by Amura, and its former executive chef Fuyuhiko Ito opened Umi in Two Buckhead Plaza earlier this summer. Meanwhile, locals Victory Sandwich Bar and Dad's Garage have had to leave their homes in Inman Park to make way for the new 280 Elizabeth development.
