More area restaurant news from Tomorrow’s News Today

Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, a growing burger chain, is planning what is expected to be its second Atlanta area restaurant next year in Decatur.

Mezcalito’s Owners Open “Sotolero Comida Mexicana” Just North of Decatur

Tomorrow’s News Today announced back at the end of last year that Tikila’s on Clairmont Road, just north of the city limits, would soon be reopening as Sotolero Comida Mexicana.

What I didn’t notice at the time is that TNT also mentioned that Sotolero is owned by the same folks who own Mezcalito’s Cantina in Oakhurst.

It’s now been open for a few weeks, but according to a note on the Oakhurst message board, Sotolero has just received it’s liquor license.  So it may be time to check out their menu and head on up there!

Sobban Korean Southern Diner Closing

sobban

Eater is reporting that Sobban, the Korean Southern Diner on Clairmont Road opened by the owners of celebrated Heirloom Market BBQ in late 2013, is closing.

The site says that issues with DeKalb County and the owners plans to open a second Heirloom Market BBQ in Seoul, South Korea, are prompting the close.

But good news for fans of the restaurant that don’t mind a bit of a drive – the Heirloom owners are considering reopening Sobban in another metro Atlanta area closer to Heirloom Market BBQ on the northwest side of the city.  So stick around for that and maybe you can grab a bite while you’re stuck in gridlock trying to go to a Braves game at Suntrust Park!

Dear Loyal Bhojanic Customers,

After 12 years, it is both with a heavy heart but also with excitement that we are announcing the closing of our Decatur location on November 30, 2015. Unfortunately, our lease at this location has come to an end and we could not come to terms on a lease extension. We are glad to let everyone know that our entire staff has the opportunity to continue working with us at either our Buckhead location or Catering kitchen. At the same time, we are excited to say that we will not be gone from the area long. Please be on the lookout for an announcement regarding our new concept that will be opening in the area the 1st quarter of 2016.

Additionally, Bhojanic Catering is also expanding into a larger facility. Earlier this year we purchased a warehouse and are in the permitting processes for converting it to a commissary kitchen to facilitate our continued growth in catering and foodservice.

In the meantime, please visit our restaurant Bhojanic Buckhead at 3400 Around Lenox Road (next to Crate and Barrel) and for all of your catering and Food Truck needs, please email [email protected] or calling 404-702-8301.

Developer Plans 3-Story Restaurant to Replace Long-Vacant Scott Boulevard Car Dealership

oldsmobikedealership

I don’t know about you all, but every time we drive down Scott Boulevard towards Stone Mountain, we wonder what the future holds for this long-vacant Oldsmobile dealership (MAP).

Well it looks like there’s now a plan to build a three-story restaurant and bar on the site.

The Medlock Area Neighborhood Association posted a notice over the weekend about a community meeting next Monday on the site to discuss a request for a special land-use permit for the site to allow a three-story building on the site.  Here’s a small sketch of the proposed restaurant being designed by Restaurants Consulting Group, who also designed Atlanta area restaurants including Eclipse di Luna, Lotus Lounge and Re’Past.
