Gravy Train: Antica Posta, Antico Pizza both plan expansions

Antica Posta is expanding, adding a 1,000-square-foot addition to the rear of the building. Owner Marco Betti says that it will add woodfire pizza, served late night. It is also building out a chef's table in the kitchen. Pizza service will start in about a month, but you'll have to wait until late summer to grab a seat at the chef's table.

Eater Atlanta talks with Giovanni Di Palma of Antico, catching up on the drama of late. Di Palma says he's not worried about the bevy of new Neapolitan pizza joints popping up around town - in fact, he thinks that it's helping business. They don't seem to be hurting it because Antico is expanding. It is in the process of adding an Italian-inspired piazza with 100 seats and a second eatery, Limoncello Bar, Caffe and Gelataria. Piazza Antico will be located just across from the current Antico location.

The Pinewood Tippling Room will open for business on Tuesday, May 15. Guests have been getting a sneak peek this week at some pre-opening tasting events.

Loca Luna is engaged in a battle with local residents, reports Midtown Patch. Nearby homeowners are none too happy with the late weeknight hours, double parking, and club-goers urinating in their yards (can you blame them?). The restaurant will present its first crack at a solution at a community meeting in about two months.

Wonder where Kevin Gillespie eats around town? He gives Serious Eats the rundown on his favorite Atlanta restaurants. Keep your eyes peeled at Antico, Super Pan, Octane, H. Harper Station, and half a dozen other spots throughout the city. Fun fact: He digs tots.

Atlantic Station is introducing pop-up restaurants in the now vacant the Grape location. First up? Yumbii and Cafe at Pharr. The two sister restaurants will launch on June 1 and stay open until August 5, reports the AJC.

Muss and Turner's, which closed for a brief time, is now open again - and with some shiny new features. It has added a new bar called Eleanor's, which opens this evening. The bar is named for a well-loved Muss and Turner's employee that the owners regard as "the fabric that holds it all together." The new bar is right next to Muss and Turner's.

Pure Taqueria is opening a Roswell location this summer. Its menu includes both entrees and taco plates - plus, it serves brunch! Pure currently has four Atlanta-area locations: Inman Park, Alpharetta, Woodstock, and Duluth.

Pizza 3.14 (don't ya just love a pun?) is opening new location in Marietta. It currently has a shop up in Woodstock. The Marietta location will have dine-in and delivery, plus there is an arcade for the kiddies. Pizza 3.14 serves hand-tossed, New York-style pizza. The menu also includes other pizza parlor fare like subs, calzones, wings, and a few salads.

four40 kitchen + bar is gearing up to open north of town in the Avenue at Forsyth.
