Bits & Bites

Fujiyama, a new Japanese sushi and steakhouse eatery, is opening in place of Kobe Steakhouse at The Prado in Sandy Springs.  Kobe Steaks closed in May after nearly 40 years in business.  (A similarly named but unrelated eatery is opening soon at Briarcliff Village near Northlake Mall.)

A new Bojangles' is coming to Dacula.  The new Bojangles' is planned near the intersection of Dacula Road and Old Peachtree Road.  The roughly 3,800 square foot restaurant will have seating for 78 and will include 50 parking spaces. The new Bojangles' will be built on a vacant parcel between existing AutoZone and McDonald's locations.  

PetSuites, a growing "pet resort & spa" facility plans to open its first Georgia location on Mansell Road in Alpharetta. 


Buckhead's DEKA boutique is branching out to the Big Apple. Owner Jim Whitlow plans to open DEKA New York - SoHo November 24th. DEKA has expanded before, opening in Chicago at 900 North Michigan Shops in 2012, before closing about a year later. DEKA's flagship Atlanta location is located in The Shops Around Lenox, its home since 2010 when it moved from Pharr Road


Indian eatery Moksha quietly opened its second location last month.  Located at 5975 Roswell Road, Moksha is located in the same center as Cheeseburger Bobby's, Cafe Sunflower and the soon to close Jason's Deli.  The first Moksha is in Duluth on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard.  

After a year of renovations and upgrades, the former Sonic Drive-Thru on Alpharetta Highway has reopened as Tower Burger.   

Tutto Kitchen & Bar joins the popular Historic Downtown Roswell district this Friday.  The Italian-American eatery is located adjacent to the recently opened Real Fix Pizzeria and will offer assorted meats, seafood and fresh-made pastas.   

After a number of delays, Bantam & Biddy reportedly plans to open its new Lenox Square location November 25th.  The new restaurant will be the chain's fourth. Existing Bantam & Biddy locations include Ansley Mall, 1010 Midtown and Avalon in Alpharetta.

Any idea on what is taking Corso Coffee so long to open? They had their space built out a while ago. I heard it was them waiting on a liquor license but that seems odd to wait on for a predominantly coffee and pastry shop.
