Stax Burger Bar in Roswell on Grimes Bridge and 92 in the plaza where Wolf Camera used to be.  More Burgers...hmmm.  Anyone have any details?

There's a family of restaurants in the Greenville, SC area with the name Stax. Wonder if they are any relation?

I don't think it is. I could go for some Stax Omega right now.....(G'vile is my hometown, and I still go up as often as I can. I have many good memories of eating at the Stax restaurants growing up...)

Same here (JL Mann, what!) - Stax Omega was a breakfast favorite of mine.

With three locations and the famous chef long gone, it's now just a chain.  I'll stick with Gu's.

Actually, I've seen many folks express the opinion that at least one of the locations was improved without Chang's influence. I know some of the best meals I had at the original were during a time when he was abroad (though I also had a few amazing ones when he was in back). Regardless, it's a cuisine that's not well-represented in that immediate (Emory/Decatur) area, so I'm not about to look a gift horse in the mouth.

In other area news, one of if not our favorite baker in Atlanta, Maria Moore Riggs, owner of Little Red Hen Bakeshop (sells at the Decatur Farmer's Market, among others, and supplies Farm Burger and a few other places with goodies) is opening an artisan doughnut shop called Revolution Doughnuts in Decatur next door to Ale Yeah! this May.

Also, Hankook Taqueria is rumored to be moving into the former Cakes & Ale location.

Uh oh, this sounds very dangerous!  Doughnuts are my favorite indulgence, the trek to Sublime Doughnuts has been the only thing separating me from complete and utter ruin...

Doughnuts and Ale!!! "Kill" two birds with one stone on a trip to Decatur! Might even grab some artisan Pork Belly Bacon or some Cheese from Ale Yeah while you are there....

Sitting across the street at REV (in Smyrna, on Spring road east of Atlanta road), looks like Boca Mexican Grill about to open in what was most recently Victoria's Cafe.  Rumor has it that this is being done by the owner of Taverna Fiorentina.  The finishes are much nicer inside, but this place is still relatively tiny from a seating perspective.

Rumor has it an indonesian place is going in where Tomo used to be in Vinings, and a persian place in that same shopping center.
I'd heard that another sushi restaurant went into the old Tomo space.  Still good sushi and at a decent price point.

that makes me sad. Was hoping for something different
Has anybody who lives/works in that area of Cobb seen a name?

sooooo....went to lunch at Hankook on Friday so I talked with them directly about the possibility of them opening a location in Decatur. they said that they really wanted the old Watershed location but the landlady was being difficult. they are continuing to look in the area though including a spot across from the CDC Emory campus. *fingers crossed*
