Krystal goes fancy, Grindhouse goes slow...

Correction appended below

From Harold Shumacher’s “This Week on the Street” column:

Other newcomers to keep an eye on this fall include The Family Dog, from Chef Ron Eyers (Rosebud) in Morningside; Local 3 at the former Joel’s in Buckhead (from the owners of Muss & Turner’s); Big Ketch, in Buckhead (from the Twisted Taco Folks) and North Harper Station taking the former train depot on Memorial Drive in Cabbagetown (from the crew that brings you Rolling Bones BBQ).

Krystal, best known for their small, square steamed sliders is getting into the bread and café business with the pending opening of Atlanta’s first K-Café on Old Windward Parkway. Company officials maintain this is a trial concept with no future plans for expansion.

The Atlanta Business Chronicle has more on the new Krystal venture....

Speaking of obnoxious food, McDonald’s has found a new world to infest…..

We hit Grindhouse Killer Burgers at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market for lunch Wednesday. I ordered my usual double-Apache burger (made with roasted green chiles) and a side of sweet-potato chips.

I’ve been watching snail’s-pace progress on the new location of the burger joint on Piedmont Road. An employee behind the counter told me the new restaurant is optimistically scheduled to open Dec. 1. “But we haven’t even received the building permit yet,” she said….

I checked by the new Bell Street Burritos while at the market. It was doing a brisk business. In fact, the line was long. If you haven’t tried this yet and remember Tortillas on Ponce, you should stop by….

I had a terrific jambalaya (and a lengthy wait) for lunch at the new Nawlins on Tuesday. See this week’s "Grazing" for more about the interesting Cajun-Creole-Italian restaurant.

Correction: Jeffrey Landers writes to correct the information quoted from Harold Shumacher above:

"Just wanted to let you know that H. Harper Station (NOT North Harper Station) is in the old train depot in Reynoldstown, NOT Cabbagetown as you have reported. If you could correct these errors it would be most appreciated by the 1500 households of my neighborhood of RTown! Thanks."

Sorry 'bout that.
