Speaking of Johns Creek, I saw a sign at the corner of Old Ali-bama and Jones Bridge for a new sports bar. The sign pointed in the direction of Jones Bridge towards Old Milton. It was one of those cheesey signs they hammer in the ground, the sports bar is not at that intersection, just the sign.

Did that craptastic American Ale House close and get replaced? Dern, I made mental note and wanted to look it up, but forgot about it and the name, so I can't Google.

Latest opening date from the folks at Empire State South - 30AUG.  They must have some confidence in this date as their website says that the are accepting reservation requests for 1SEP.

Interesting.  From the information on their website, it already LOOKS open.  No specific opening dates or anything of the sort that I saw, but they have detailed menus and events lined up.

LOVE the Indian Tiffin lunchbox idea. I wonder if they'll be delivering them as well at some point.

How about that. Just today I said to passersby that what uOTPia really needs is another burger joint.

Got one at Windward and Highway 9 http://scratchfresh.com/home.html

No menu online (at least yet). They do serve breakfast beginning at 7 am and open until 9 pm.

I haven't had the biscuit, but I did try the burger about a month ago.  It wasn't bad. Seems family owned.  I'd say on par with 5 guys, but a bit more friendly atmosphere and a lot less seating.

Scratch has been open for a few months now. The Five Guys comparison is easy to make. Flat top burger, etc. They have more topping than Five Guys, and the rest of the menu is more diverse. Watch out for frozen fries and Pepsi products. Boo! But overall I thought the burger was better than Five Guys at a similar price. Best burger in town? Hardly.

Ah is/was in Johns Creek a BB's Burger (not to be confused with the bagel place). Purty much the same idea: blatant 5 Guys copy, but as good or better...but hardly the best burger in town.

Windward and Highway 9 is the edge of my eating range, but I just heard of them last night when I saw in ad in the local rag.

Noticed a sign for The Ketch - Saltwater Grill, which seems to be going into the old Taco Stand place on Roswell Road in Buckhead.

We are getting a fish market and to-go fish restaurant in Centerville (down 124 from Snellville)..   I'm looking forward to ANYTHING out this way..

Finding offense where none is intended is a form of selfishness.

When facts change, I change my mind.  What do you do?

Davio's Italian Steakhouse (????) is open in Phipps. Saw the sign when I went to TJ Maxx.
