Wife has claimed to seen a sign on Canton next to 946 South saying "INC - street food coming soon".  Says it (the sign) looks trendy.  Not sure what that means, but I'll try to drive by and see if I can corroborate the sighting.

It's from the owners of Red Salt/Salt Factory next door. Same chef.
Word is it may open mid-January.

Havana has reopened at the corner of Clairemont/Buford Hwy...  Another Havana is scheduled to open in front of NE Plaza on Buford Hwy.  Not sure which is which?  Anybody know which is one is associated with the old Havana?

I'm not positive, but I think it's some kind of grudge match between the former owners of the original down by N. Druid Hills.

I have been to the new one at Clairmont and Buford - same great Cuban sandwich but the black bean soup was not so good - hopefully just an off batch.  BTW, the pub next door is owned by a former owner of Fuzzy's and has some of the same items on the menu.  There is also another Fuzzy's open near the Druid Hills/Buford intersection, which they say is owned by a couple of people who worked at the original.

I went to the new Havana and had the Cuban sandwich and I agree about the black bean soup, there was something wrong with it. I went back and had the arroz con pollo and it was so unbelievably moist and flavorful.

I also tried the Pirate's Pub the salad was okay, but it is a very small place and there is smoking and that really is not a good thing when you are eating.
I have eaten at Zuffy's too and their Joe Dale's salad was a lot better.

And in the same vein, I noticed yesterday that the old Thai/Malaysian place on Lenox Road at the intersection of Cheshire Bridge (around the corner from Bamboo Luau) now has a sign, "Moto Bistro & Bar."  It has been under renovation for months now.

IIRC, the former Thai/Malaysian spot was called SEA SIAM.

second hand tidbit:

In the briefly hot New Orleans Connection space in Smyrna, sounds like someone is hard at work building out a bakery that hopes to to have some breakfast options.

Stole this update from DecaturMetro.  New spot is called EatAtThai, second branch of a restaurant in Gainesville.

Somehow, I expected to be underwhelmed.  Can anyone raise my hopes?

Well, I thought Thai Me Up was a pretty decent place, and handy for being 2 blocks from me.  Maybe?

We can hope, as it would be nice to have a good Thai place in the hood.

That being said, I am forever ruined for Thai after my visits here:

If you ever make it Vegas, you MUST go there...

Decatur Metro is quoting Atlanta Intown that Twisted Taco is going into Emory Village this spring.  There's a link to AI, but I can't find anything on their site.  So they'll be putting this in about the same time as somebody is allegedly tearing everything up for the new traffic circle out front of the Emory entrance?

I received a copy of Atlanta Intown in my mailbox today - the item says Twisted Taco is taking the old Emory Bookstore site on Oxford road, next to the Falafel King.  The paper says look at the TT website, but there does not appear to be any information there as of yet.
