Chef and owner Matthew Deckard announced the closing of Deckard's American Tavern last week via Twitter. Located at 650 Ponce de Leon Ave. across the street from the former City Hall East, Deckard's first opened its doors in Sept. 2010.

The Texas-based Mi Cocina chain opened its first Atlanta location Monday. The Tex-Mex restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner Mon.-Thurs., 11 a.m.-10 p.m., Fri.-Sat., 11 a.m.-11 p.m.; and is located at the northwest corner of Peachtree and 11th Streets in the 12th & Midtown development.

Seven Lamps announced that Arianne Fielder (currently of Southern Art & Bourbon Bar) will serve as the forthcoming restaurant's, "'Head Mixtress' & Beverage Manager." Seven Lamps, a new restaurant helmed by chef and owner Drew van Leuvan, is slated to open in December at 3400 Around Lenox Road in the Shops Around Lenox.

The kitchen team at Ford Fry's forthcoming King + Duke received a new addition. Fry is bringing on chef Kevin Maxey (formerly of Gramercy Tavern in New York City and both Craft locations in Dallas and Atlanta) as a member of King + Duke's opening team. "Kevin is not only passionate about hospitality but his expertise and vast knowledge of the restaurant industry is top notch. He is a fantastic addition to the company as well as King + Duke," Fry stated in a recent release.

Tongue and Groove owners plan to open a "steampunk lounge" next door at 565 Main St. in Lindbergh City Center. Slated to open on Nov. 13, Joint Barroom is a 1,500-square foot "turbo-pub" with two bars and DJ booth. Expect the decor to be a blend of science, art, and industrial elements.

Long-time Virginia-Highland restaurant American Roadhouse has a new owner. Former Bone's Restaurant general manager Emile Blau recently purchased American Roadhouse and plans to keep the name and the restaurant's menu the same.
