Bits & Bites

The franchised location of Moe's Southwest Grill at Ansley Mall in Midtown will close tonight after not being offered a lease renewal.  ToNeTo Atlanta was first to report October 17 that Ansley Mall owner Selig Enterprises signed a lease with New York based Chopt Creative Salad Co. to open in place of the burrito joint.   
The new Camp Creek location of Old Lady Gang (OLG) is expected to open in November.  The restaurant, sibling of the original Old Lady Gang on Peters Street in Castleberry Hill, is owned by entertainer Kandi Burruss-Tucker and husband Todd Tucker.  The new Old Lady Gang will open in a 2,800 square foot space in Camp Creek Marketplace on Camp Creek Parkway in East Point.  The new restaurant replaces the short-lived Boneheads which lasted less than two years. 

A new Olive Garden is coming to an out-parcel of the new Kroger Marketplace anchored Dawson Marketplace shopping center in Dawsonville.  Planning documents indicate the 7,800 square foot restaurant will sit on a 1.7 acre site adjacent to an upcoming Fairfield Inn & Suites hotel.  

Atlanta's Cafe Intermezzo has opened a new outpost in downtown Nashville at 205 Demonbreun Street, their second outside of metro Atlanta.  The popular pastry and coffee cafe has existing Atlanta area locations in Midtown, Dunwoody, Avalon, and at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, as well as one at The Shops at Legacy in Plano, Texas.  

Sage Woodfire Tavern closed their restaurant on Windy Hill and Powers Ferry Roads near Smyrna this past weekend.  The restaurant, which opened last summer in the onetime Houston's, did not explain the closure but it is surely related to the company's Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing this past July.  Shortly after the bankruptcy filing, the chain closed its Alpharetta restaurant on Haynes Bridge Road near North Point Mall "for renovations."  The company continues to operate locations on Ashford Dunwoody Road near Perimeter Mall and on Peachtree Road near Lenox Square.   

The Halal Guys plans to celebrate the grand opening of their Midtown location Friday November 16 at Modera Midtown.  The 435 unit apartment building is located on 8th Street adjacent to the new NCR offices and along the downtown connector.  The first Atlanta area location of the New York-based franchise opened on Buford Highway in Chamblee early last year.  

Self-serve frozen yogurt purveyor Yogli Mogli plans to open a new shop in Dawson Marketplace in Dawsonville.  The 1,530 square foot froyo shop will be one of the first new locations for the Atlanta-born brand in quite some time.  

Kale Me Crazy has signed on to open in Westside Village, the new mixed-use development along Marietta Street near the Edens project Moores Mill.  In addition to the new signing, the Atlanta-based smoothie and juice joint has locations opening "soon" in Alpharetta, Smyrna/Vinings and at Toco Hills shopping center.  

Chick-fil-A will open their highly anticipated downtown Athens location Monday November 5 at 101 College Avenue.  The 2,000 square foot restaurant is smaller than a typical Chick-fil-A, but will stay open later than most, closing at 3AM on on Thursday and Friday nights.  

A new seven tenant project is expected to begin construction in the coming months at the corner of Dogwood Road and Scenic Highway in Snellville.  The development, which would replace "The Market," an existing convenience store and gas station, would bring as many as five retail spaces and two restaurants to the approximately 1.3 acre site.  The roughly 10,000 square foot project will include approximately 1,1oo and 2,600 square foot restaurants with 50 parking spaces shared among all tenants.

The new Chick-Fil-A in Athens will be much different in layout from their usual. Looks as if all orders will placed at a window while standing on the sidewalk outside, with very few seats inside:
