RiceSticks was one of my favorite metro Atlanta restaurants period.  I still miss Kevin.

I put a question mark in there, just in case a resto was remodeling or something of the sort. I am afraid though, it looks like Uncle Wong's in Vinings finally bit the dust. The owner was such a nice guy. I guess I saw it coming when they quit ironing their tablecloths and setting up all their tables. I did not park and read the stickers/notes on the window, but it did look empty from the outside looking in.

I have a questionable closed restaurant, too. I was trying to go to dim sum on Saturday with First Chin in mind, but they were closed when I pulled up. Are they closed for good? Or just closed for lunch?

Anyone know?
Food is my favorite.

A couple of months ago, Hong Kong friend told me that the latest in a long line of owners had some legal issues and had to shut down.  Not sure if that is permanent or not.

Well, they do answer the phone now, to the tune of Chopstixs. They say they moved Uncle Wong's to the Canoe shopping center.

In case anyone is a fan of the brownie-stuffed chocolate chip cookie at Nirvana in Roswell, you have until Sunday to feed that jones. The place is closing up shop that day.

Food was fair at best.  RIP Nirvana

Benny's Bar and Grill in Snellville has been "temporarily" closed for a while. Too bad, as it was the best eatery in/near the city.

Benny's was a favorite of ours too.  We like Mike Miller and his staff, he is really a good cook himself and when he had the other guy from NOLA working with him (in the beginning), the food was way good.  I still have his email address, I should/could drop him a note and see what's what?    I thought he was only closed for lunch?

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

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

It's a poor craftsman that blames his tools.

When I dropped by, there was a yellow letter from a company that rented kitchen equipment claiming their stuff was inside and they were legally claiming it. I looked again last night ca 9pm or so and saw no light on of any kind. I'd write. If Mike has plans to restart the restaurant .. anywhere .. I'd like to be around when it opens.

I can't help but think Benny's was hard hit by all the construction on 78, and the general reluctance of the ITP foodie crowd to eat OTP. Would he still be here if his restaurant had been on Buford Highway?

Signs down, restaurant dark.
Unfortunately, a conclusion is usually the place where you got tired of thinking.
