Gravy Train: New life for Silver Grill, Feast Restaurant to close

Fifth Group updates us on the progress at Lure. The new Midtown seafood restaurant will open in early July. David Bradley, a 12 year Fifth Group veteran and currently the chef de cuisine at Ecco, will oversee the kitchen. The menu at Lure will feature a variety of oysters and raw bar classics, traditional seafood dishes and plates designed for sharing - including house smoked seafood “charcuterie.”

Feast Restaurant in Decatur will be closing this weekend. The restaurant posted a message to patrons on their Facebook page explaining that the cause is a mix of the economy and a tough battle with breast cancer. The restaurant has been open for seven years. They also owned the short lived Farmstead 303/Rail Kitchen and Bar, which closed last August. Owner Teri Rogers hopes to start a catering company.

The former Silver Grill on Monroe Drive will become La Hacienda Mexican Restaurant. The building will almost double in size, getting an 892 square foot addition. La Hacienda has two locations, one in Peachtree City and one in Newnan. The massive menu is full of the standard Americanized Mexican fare.

Lime Fresh Mexican Grill, which had already announced two Atlanta locations, will open a third location - this time taking the Genghis Grill spot in Peachtree Hills at Brookwood Sqaure. They already have two planned locations along the Peachtree stretch - one in Midtown (formerly Bakeshop) and one in Buckhead (formerly Johnny Rockets). Each outpost is only about 2.5 miles from the next. All three will open soon.

Sugar Moon Bake Shop will be opening in Oakhurst in the former Nectar space. The owner comments on Decatur Metro, saying they’ll specialize in cupcakes. The bakery will also serve gourmet ice cream and other baked goods.

Two Emory alums are launching a new restaurant deals app called Woblet. The app allows you to spin a “deal wheel” on your phone to get a discount where you’re dining. Discounts range from 5% - 15% off your bill. If you’re feeling generous, you can even “give back” a portion of your discount to charity. The multi-functional app also serves as a loyalty/rewards program and has mobile payment options. Woblet launches in Atlanta this March.

Alon’s in Dunwoody is adding a pizza oven.

In what’s sure to be the opposite of the Alon’s pizza experience, fans of $5 pies will be happy to hear a new takeout location of Little Caesar's is coming to Moreland Avenue just south of Custer Avenue.

What Now Atlanta reports that Repicci’s Italian Ice in Midtown has closed. It will be replaced by Groovy Smoothie.
