The Sound Table has permanently closed its brick-and-mortar operation in Old Fourth Ward after ten years in business, Owner Karl Injex announced on the restaurant’s Facebook page late last week. “The decade of the Sound Table has come to a close,” according to the social media post.
But in contrast to many of the City’s businesses permanently shuttering this year in response to the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic, The Sound Table had already planned on closing. “While it would be logical to link this to the challenges presented by these wild times we’re living through, the story is actually much more interesting … and positive,” Injex goes on to write on Facebook. “For the past few years, we’ve been considering making some big changes as we reached our 10th anniversary (which fell on the 30th of April this year). Fortunately, we found the ideal couple in our buyers, Greg and Noelle, who were ready to take on the challenge of carrying forward the legacy of 483 Edgewood Ave, under a new identity but with a faithful reverence to the ethos of [The Sound Table].”
“Greg and Noelle” as of this publication have not been identified and neither have their plans for The Sound Table space (which will soon be home to a midrise mixed-use development). Injex says to “watch this space for more details on their forthcoming evolution.”
As far as The Sound Table “as a brand and an idea are concerned, we will continue to create and curate under the Sound Table banner, untethered to any specific physical location, continuing to explore and expand upon the things we love,” Injex wrote. “Thank you for 10 years of unadulterated pleasure. Let’s see what the next ten are [talking about].”
