North Avenue Tex-Mex and taco bar Deep End, owned by 10 Apart restaurant group (the Pinewood, the Mercury), closed earlier this week, according to two anonymous sources close to the situation. Deep End’s Instagram description reads, “Thanks for the memories. We had fun.”
The Old Fourth Ward bar, known for late night hours, DJ sets, and gaming, opened in November 2017 at the former 4th & Swift restaurant at Southern Dairies across from Ponce City Market.
10 Apart partners Brooks Cloud, Julian Goglia, and chef Mike Blydenstein filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy last October for both the Pinewood and the Mercury, followed by Deep End in February. The first filing came on the heels of the closure of their Buckhead-based Italian restaurant Bar Americano in April 2018. Goglia told Eater Atlanta at the time, the group had no plans to close the Pinewood or the Mercury. Deep End wasn’t part of the original bankruptcy filing.
Eater Atlanta reached out to 10 Apart for further details on the closure and for comment.
In more positive news, chef Adam Waller returns as 10 Apart’s culinary director after departing his position at Empire State South in March. Waller was the chef for Bar Americano, and worked previously as the executive chef for Bocado on Howell Mill Road.
