DaVinci's Pizzeria, a popular spot in Smyrna, will be opening their second Atlanta location later this month. The pizza shop will be in Arts Center Tower across from the Arts Center Marta Station.

The long-awaited H&F Bottle Shop is opening its doors today, selling wine only. A grand opening is planned in about a month when the store will begin offering liquors as well.

You must be living under a rock if you’ve missed all the buzz about Atlantic Station transforming itself. The first big-name restaurant to bite the dust is Geisha House, which will reportedly close down this weekend. Atlantic Station shared the following on their Facebook page: “Closing Geisha is also the first step towards fulfilling North American Properties' promise to end the nightclub operations that have been a source of many past complaints in Atlantic Station.” Dolce Group also operates Atlantic Station’s Dolce and Ten Pin Alley. No word yet on the fate of those establishments.

Locals are buzzing that Little’s Grocery is returning to Cabbagetown, opening this spring, and our sources suggest the same. Alongside comfort foods like burgers and chili, the market is rumored to be selling grocery items as well as beer and wine.

The shuttered Gathering Grounds in Kirkwood is re-opening as Dulce Vegan Bakery and Café, but don’t fret, they promise the food won’t taste vegan.
