Gravy Train: Delia's Chicken Sausage Stand, The Real Chow Baby, Antico in Manhattan?

Posted By on Fri, Dec 10, 2010 at 11:10 AM

Delia Champion (founder of the Flying Biscuit) and Molly Gunn (owner of the Porter) are planning to open Delia's Chicken Sausage Stand in the old Supreme Fish Delight on Moreland near 1-20 (which always stood out to me as a strange mix of a landmark and an eyesore). They are also planning to launch a fleet of food trucks to spread sausage love to the masses. The opening is slated for late January to early February.

The Real Chow Baby is opening their second Atlanta location this Friday. The new restaurant is located at 782 Ponce de Leon in the former Doc Green’s building. The Real Chow Baby is a do-it-yourself all-you-can-eat stir-fry buffet. The new location features recommended recipes from local chefs in case you need a bit of guidance. The Real Chow Baby will offer valet parking and serve lunch and dinner daily.

We heard a rumor through a Tweet last week that Antico may be opening a location in Manhattan. Calls and emails to the owners have yielded no comment or confirmation as yet, but we're keeping on top of it and will let you know as soon as we get the dirt.

Truffles Cafe is now open in the old Ruby Tuesday’s space on Lenox Road. The South Carolina import is under the ownership of the Ruby Tuesday’s brand, but offers a slightly more upscale feel. You’ll find the standard American favorites including steaks and a variety of seafood. Truffles is open for lunch and dinner daily. This is the first Truffles location outside of South Carolina.

Café Intermezzo is planning on opening their new Downtown location in January in the Hotel Indigo development on Carnegie Way. This will be the fourth location for Cafe Intermezzo (including one in Atlanta Hartsfield). Cafe Intermezzo specializes in desserts and coffee drinks but also serves a variety of wine and cocktails along with sandwiches and entrees.

The Market at Parish is now offering a few new to-go options. For $20 you can pick up a whole roasted Springer Mountian Farms chicken with three sides (think collards, cole slaw, grits or potato salad). They are also offering $5 and $10 lunch combos which include a variety of sandwiches, soups and salads served with a cookie.

Ale Yeah! Beer is open for business on College in Decatur. In additon to more crazy craft beers than you can (or should) drink in a sitting, they’ll hook you up with meats from The Spotted Trotter and cheese from Sweet Grass Dairy.

The Georgia Rib Company held their Grand Opening this week in Marietta, though it looks like they’ve been serving up the ‘cue for a while now. The restaurant is located at 4930 Davidson Road, just steps from the popular Sam’s BBQ1.
