The Decatur space that currently houses Twisted Soul Kitchen + Bar claims another victim. The restaurant will close on December 30 and look for a new home in 2016. The location previously was home to the since-shuttered Mar and Mar Bar.
Chef and owner Deborah VanTrece was unable to agree on a new lease with the building's landlord, according to an announcement from Twisted Soul. VanTrece and her team are looking to open elsewhere in Decatur, but will consider the rest of the Atlanta area, as well. In the meantime, the chef will continue to offer catering, work with charitable causes, and appear at food-focused events around the city.
"We have an amazing group of supporters and regulars at Twisted Soul and love the city of Decatur," VanTrece said in a prepared statement. "Changing locations is a good way for us to take a step back, evaluate things and improve on the next version of Twisted Soul. We plan to continue building the relationships that have made our year here feel so rewarding, and to grow in every way so that we can nourish our customers and the community."
Before opening Twisted Soul last December, VanTrece was chef and owner at Edible Art in East Atlanta more than a decade ago. She closed that restaurant in 2002.
