The Glenwood
Yumdiggity, a gourmet hot dog stand concept from the creators of Yumbii, is coming to the Sweet Auburn Curb Market.

Folks in East Atlanta are buzzing about the reopening of the newly renovated The Glenwood, scheduled for tonight. The restaurant, which now has an expanded bar area, will open with a limited menu, which you can check out on their Facebook page.

Fifth Group has announced that their new downtown Mexican concept will be called Alma Cocina. They also shared their a look at their new logo and a planned opening date of November 1. The restaurant will be bringing in chef Chad Clevenger from Denver, who has a strong background in Southwestern and Latin cuisine, to helm Alma Cocina.

Richard Blais will be releasing a cookbook next year, so we can all cook like a Top Chef.

According to What Now Atlanta, Ford Fry (hot off opening No. 246) already has a new project in the works - a seafood restaurant on the Westside. The restaurant, which hopes to open in March, will be “a fun seafood restaurant and fish camp,” designed to feel like the restaurants found in the coastal towns of the Florida Panhandle.

Tomatillos, the new burrito joint from the folks at Grant Central Pizza, is said to be preparing to open their East Atlanta Village location in about three weeks.

Zhaddy’s Cafe is now open on Highland Avenue in Inman Park. The restaurant, open for breakfast and lunch, serves omelettes, sandwiches, salads, burgers. They do stay open until 6 p.m. most nights, so you can grab dinner on your way home.

Cypress Street Pint and Plate has a new chef. Richard Silvey is the restaurant's new executive chef, and he has already started revamping the menu at the Midtown bar and restaurant. Some of the new menu items include tomatillo pork nachos with a pineapple habanero sauce and a Southern caprese salad with fried green tomatoes, pimento cheese, and a pickled peach vinaigrette. Silvey honed his skills in various kitchens around Atlanta, including Sotto Sotto, Fritti, and Agave.

Chick-fil-A is rolling out a decidedly non-chickeny item: oatmeal. It will be available on it’s own or as a side in the breakfast combo meal. Three types of toppings are available, including cinnamon brown sugar, mixed nuts or a dried fruit blend. The oatmeal is part of Chick-fil-A’s ongoing efforts to offer healthy options, and is scheduled to hit the menu on Monday.
