UPDATE (March 21, 2018): Team Behind 18.21 Bitters To Open Drafts + Dogs at Ponce City Market

Simply Seoul Kitchen in Ponce City Market will close its doors for good January 8, 2018.

The Korean market stall, situated in the Old Fourth Ward mixed-use redevelopment’s Central Food Hall, late last week announced the news on its Facebook page.

“The last 4 years has been such a life-changing journey,” Hannah Chung, Simply Seoul’s owner said in the social media post.

“I want to thank everyone that supported Simply Seoul and made it a successful business.”

The restaurant first opened its doors in 2015 serving kimchi and handmade Korean BBQ steamed buns. It now joins a growing list of Atlanta-area businesses that are calling it quits in the new year.

Chung’s next move is unknown, but the restauranteur said she’s “ready for a new adventure.”

No word on what might open in the Korean eatery’s place.

  1. Very sad! I work in the building at PCM. Simply Seoul was the spot to go when I wasn’t super hungry and was short on time. Loved their beef buns. It was also one of the cheaper options with the combos they provided and the quickest prep for food. I still remember buying from Hannah before PCM was built out and she had a table setup right next to the doors for Simply Seoul. Good times!
