All was quiet over the weekend at Fourteen Seventy-Two, the Southern restaurant that opened at South Pearl Street and East Florida Avenue in 2012. While there were no overt signs of trouble — the patio furniture was out and a recent copy of the menu was displayed near the front entrance — the place was dark during dinner on Saturday and brunch service Sunday, and calls to the restaurant went unanswered.
Only the restaurant's Facebook page revealed the answer with this message post on February 5:
At the time it opened, Fourteen Seventy-Two, which specialized in the Low Country cuisine of coastal Georgia and South Carolina, was ahead of a wave of Southern restaurants. Now the first half of 2017 alone will bring the opening of Julep (on upper Larimer Street), Low Country Kitchen (in Lower Highland), and Tupelo Honey Cafe (behind Union Station).
