Quick Bites: Elmyriachi now open, Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall, and more

Posted By on Mon, May 12, 2014 at 12:41 PM

Ron Eyester's New Jersey-inspired Morningside pizza joint, Timone's (1409 North Highland Ave.), just launched its late-night pizza slice pickup window, which operates from 10 p.m. every Friday and Saturday until the pies run out. And what's on the menu? Cheese pizza slices are offered for $3 and pepperoni slices for $4.

Elmyriachi opened for business at 1950 Hosea L. Williams Drive in Kirkwood last week. The casual eatery offers build-your-own tacos (try the smoked brisket) to avocado-jalapeño margaritas, which can be enjoyed amid a spacious patio, a maple bar with DJ booth, and eventually, a bocce court. The restaurant, which offers table service, is open seven days a week.

The El Azteca Mexican restaurant at 939 Ponce de Leon Ave. recently changed its name to El Ponce. The new moniker makes sense considering the hole-in-the-wall hipster bar in the back, El Bar, which operates late night with spin-masters such as DJ Speakerfoxxx.

Endive Publik House, a brick-and-mortar concept from Endive Atlanta Fine Catering, is now open at 1468 Mecaslin St., near to Atlantic Station. The interior of the long brick building is assembled from a reclaimed piano and church pews, with a charming side garden to boot. Cornflake-crusted fried chicken, fried lobster tails, updated Old Fashioneds, and more are served Thursday through Sunday nights.

A new restaurant called Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall is slated to open this summer at 684 John Wesley Dobbs Ave., across from Kevin Rathbun Steak. The 2,000 square-foot, Beltline-facing patio comes courtesy of owner Michael Lennox, and will feature "beer garden-style tables, plenty of foliage, and games like shuffleboard and pingpong."

Star Provisions' beloved cheesemonger, Tim Gaddis, left the upscale foods shop last Friday to assume his new role as cheese house manager at the equally distinguished Many Fold Farm, located near Serenbe at 7850 Rico Road in Palmetto, Georgia. The French Culinary Institute graduate has worked in cheese retail for 11 years, and was excited to pursue a new opportunity in operations, sales, and marketing. Filling Gaddis' shoes at the 1198 Howell Mill Road market is Alon's Bakery's Carolyn Bender.
