Downtown steakhouse down and out.
Durango Steakhouse closed its doors after dinner service on Wednesday after 15 years in business. Durango was located at 230 Peachtree Street, across from Peachtree Center and adjacent to AmericasMart.
I always walked by Durango to and from MARTA while attending Georgia State. They seemed to do well, but perhaps the recent opening of Cuts Steakhouse hurt their business. Cuts opened earlier this year on Andrew Young International Boulevard, below sister restaurant, Truva Turkish Kitchen. Cuts is reportedly doing very well even so close to established national brand, Morton's.
Durango opened in 1999 and seemed to still be living in the 90s. Their website looks simple and dated and they seemingly had zero recent presence on facebook and no presence on twitter. (Their facebook page was last updated 8/29/13.)
