After less than one year of business, Dixie is closed in South Bend.
The restaurant at 808 E. Colfax Ave., opened in February 2015 and specialized in traditional Southern food as a nod to chef and co-owner Aislin Keith’s New Orleans roots.
In the last few weeks of summer, Keith decided to shutter the restaurant as she faces two surgeries and treatments, Heidi Prescott with the South Bend Tribune reports. Keith’s leukemia is no longer in remission.
The building isn’t for sale yet, though. Keith is hoping another restauranteur will set up a lease agreement with her, or the space could be used for food truck owners.
