Babalu Tapas and Tacos has closed its Midtown doors, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution (AJC) Monday was first to report.

The Spanish-style tapas eatery, at 33 Peachtree Pl NE, has since disconnected its telephone and is no longer listed as a location on the company’s website.

Google also displays Babalu Midtown as “permanently closed” in its map feature.

Babalu’s shutter doesn’t come as a complete surprise.

Parent company Eat Here Brands filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection earlier this year.

Spell Restaurant Group has since acquired the brand and elected to not include the Midtown location in the sale.

A location planned for Roswell is also not moving forward.

Spell “did not take over the remaining construction and lease on the Canton Street property,” a rep for Eat There told the AJC.

Reps for Spell did not immediately respond to What Now Atlanta’s request for comment Monday.

  1. You are so quick! I saw the goodbye sign on the door this evening, and sure enough you’d already covered it!
