Sushi bar owners plan to open similar concept nearby.

After filing for bankruptcy in November, the owners of MF Buckhead have been court ordered to a "full liquidation" of the Buckhead restaurant, the Atlanta Journal Constitution's John Kessler first reported.

MF Buckhead will close after dinner service tonight, February 2.

“It was a difficult decision,” Sa Kinjo, co-owner of the sushi restaurant, told Kessler Thursday. “We had filed Chapter 11 and had hoped to work through this, but a judge has just signed the papers on Chapter 7 for a full liquidation.”

According to Kessler's report, MF Buckhead's owners are "working with a new partner and hopes to begin building a sushi bar in a smaller Buckhead space as soon as possible."

MF Sushibar and NAM, two other concepts from the owners of MF Buckhead, both closed last year.
