You may or may not have heard but a place called Sno*Flake opened and closed in Inman Park this past year. A wannabe knockoff of Suno, Sno*Flake never really had any significant business and its closure was far from shocking.
What is shocking, is what's now replacing it: Big Zhaddy's Place. The restaurant's ownership group relocated from Maryland to open the restaurant. In Maryland, they ran Hidden Treasure Cafe, a generic looking cafe with some less than favorable Yelp reviews.
I like to think of myself as pretty "in the know" and knowledgeable but found myself Googling "Zhaddy" and the results were interesting... According to Urban Dictionary, Zhaddy is defined:
"To have a boyfriend/husband that takes great care of you, or sexually you call your partner zhadday, the same as daddy except the z makes it more sexual."
Seems a little odd for a restaurant name, especially in the Inman Park neighborhood, but hey, maybe the food will just be that good that you wont care about the name's sexual reference.
Supposedly opening sometime next month, I'm gonna stop short of calling them Stillborn material but definitely have reservations about the concept, the location and the name.
Do you live nearby? Are you scratching your head at the name? Leave a comment below and share your thoughts.
