Owners Tara George and Michele Stultz have sold the Slate Restaurant space
When Equinox restaurant closed, I was a bit surprised. Not because it was a wonderful restaurant, but it was ok, and they had a large patio just a half-block from N. Mississippi. When they announced in April that a new restaurant named Slate would be taking over the space, but the owners would be the same and the restaurant was just getting a bit of lipstick, I thought to myself, this isn’t going to work. So this notice first reported by Eater today was not a surprise – usually it takes more than a name change to reinvent a restaurant. Their brief Facebook post:
To our loyal patrons,
Slate closed it’s doors on 8/22/2016 for good. We have sold the restaurant and a new concept will be coming to the space soon. We want to thank everyone for supporting us!
Best of luck to their crew.
I actually really enjoyed Slate, but the two times I made it there, on Friday evenings, it was certainly less crowded than it should have been. They were making a fabulous burger, and I hope to find it again somewhere.
Absolutely. Sad to see this place go.

I’m not surprised it closed. We loved Equinox and weren’t impressed at all by Slate. We went to the soft opening and the food just didn’t impress us at all.
