An observant reader comments that after eight years, Pozole quietly closed shortly after Christmas.
Pozole cantina and tequila bar was located in a freestanding building on Greenwood Avenue, right behind the Dark Horse Tavern in Virginia-Highland. On my multiple trips in to the restaurant, business seemed steady yet its closure has gone nearly unnoticed.
According to a message posted on Pozole's website, a new concept, "Bar Meatball" will open in place of Pozole. Additionally, details of what the restaurant will be were not provided but my guess is something along the lines of the popular The Meatball Shop, out of New York. The Meatball Shops offers a variety of meatballs and sides accompanied by a few sandwiches and a great bar.
Bar Meatball is expected to open in February.
