Buckhead South African comfort food restaurant Yebo Beach Haus reopens Tuesday, September 22, at its new home on East Andrews Drive. The restaurant takes over the former Bar Americano and Bar Crema spaces at Andrews Square.
In January, True Story Brands restaurateur and co-owner Justin Anthony announced Yebo Beach Haus would relocate from West Paces Ferry Road in Buckhead to Andrews Square, just a half mile northeast. This is the second time in four years the restaurant has relocated. Anthony closed Yebo at Phipps Plaza in 2016, before moving it to its previous location on West Paces Ferry and adding “Beach Haus” to the name.
At its present location, Yebo Beach Haus is situated off of an interior courtyard at the complex, which features a large fountain and plenty of space for outdoor dining. Retractable windows line the front of the restaurant and open out onto the courtyard. The bar includes two large, folding windows, allowing it to double as an outdoor bar with seating.
Until the pandemic ends, seating capacity at Yebo will continue to be limited, and patrons of the restaurant will be required to wear masks when not seated. No changes have been made to the menu, according to the press release.
During the winter months, Yebo Beach Haus transforms its menu and interior to a pop-up ski lodge with blankets and fire pits outside called Yebo Ski Haus. True Story Brands still plans to go forward with the pop-up, taking full advantage this year of the spacious courtyard at Andrews Square.
Anthony and True Story Brands (Biltong Bar) recently reopened 10 Degrees South on Roswell Road, following a five-month closure due to the pandemic. During the closure, the restaurant underwent a planned remodeling. The group closed its South African steakhouse Cape Dutch on Cheshire Bridge Road earlier this year, but plan to reopen that restaurant elsewhere in Buckhead over the coming months.
Open Tuesday -Thursday, 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.
