Burger Tap in Morningside has closed and according to visible signage will be replaced by a gourmet waffle sandwich restaurant, Waffold. Slated to open on August 1, Waffold's savory waffle sandwiches include fried chicken, lox, turkey, grilled chicken, and tuna. On the sweet side, expect combinations like Nutella and banana, S'mores, and berries with lemon cream.

Marietta-based craft-beer company Red Hare Brewing announced that it will be the first Georgia brewery to distribute its product in a can. The year-and-a-half old operation plans to start with its best-selling Bohemian-style pilsner Long Day Lager first, with hopes of expanding from there.

The iconic Buckhead fondue restaurant Dante's Down the Hatch may close. Owner Dante Stephensen told the Atlanta Business Chronicle that he can no longer justify paying for the restaurant's Peachtree Road location because of a Fulton County property tax bill.

Staplehouse supper club is on the hunt for restaurant space in Inman Park and Decatur to house what it envisions to be a neighborhood-style restaurant with a friendly price point and about 45 seats.

Just seven months after opening, Bell Street Burritos may be forced to vacate its Howell Mill location to make way for an Advance Auto Parts store. Neighborhood supporters of the restaurant have held at least two meetings to oppose and ultimately stop the proposed auto-supply store from developing.

Lunch is now available at the Spence Mon.-Fri., 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. The lunch menu includes a "Little Lunch Special" comprised of a soup, salad, and "lil sandwich" for $12.

Eater reports that Eclectic Bistro and Bar plans to open on Piedmont Avenue in early August. The restaurant will serve traditionally inspired European dishes with a modern twist.

In addition to his upcoming chicken joint Bantam & Biddy, set to open in Ansley Mall in October, Shaun Doty plans to open another fast-casual chicken concept in Atlantic Station. The yet-to-be-named restaurant is scheduled to open at the end of the year and will feature wood-grilled chicken and fresh sides.

According to What Now, Atlanta, Honey Bubble, a dessert shop specializing in “hard to find imported snacks from Asia," is opening on Ponce de Leon Avenue across the street from the Clermont Hotel. Honey Bubble will also serve bubble tea, gelato, sorbet, cupcakes, and scones.
