Black Dirt, the South Plaza restaurant from James Beard-nominated chef Jonathan Justus and his wife, Camille Eklof, will close November 7, according to a Facebook post today.

“We want everyone to know that Black Dirt’s last day will be Thursday, November 7th,” Justus says. “The space is going to be reimagined into a new and exciting restaurant, guided by new operators. If you would like to come in and have some of your favorites, we encourage you to do so before we move on to new opportunities. Black Dirt gift certificates will be honored by the new operators.”

Justus, previously of Smithville’s Justus Drugstore, opened Black Dirt in January 2018.
