This week in Atlanta Restaurants

Lots going on around town on the restaurant scene lately:

Last month, the owners of Inman Park's Patio restaurant packed up
and moved to Tuscany in Italy.  No word on new leasee's for that
corner storefront.

Also last month, Thumb's Up Diner on Edgewood added a second dining room,
almost doubling their number of tables.  But the line is still pretty long
for weekend brunch; those days I recommend getting in there close to
their 8am opening time.

Ted Turner & Longhorn founder George McKerrow are planning a new restaurant
chain tentatively called "Ted's Montana Grill" which may make it's first
appearance at a spot across the street from downtown's Tabernacle currently
home to yet another one of Fairlie-Poplar's boring surface parking lots.

Hooters says they're opening a new location in the currently vacant storefront
at the south-east corner of Peachtree and International.  Will that mean
the end of the Underground location? This is a really attractive building,
gee I wonder what will go in kitty-corner from there in the old Planet
Hollywood spot?  A strip club?  Hmmm

Angelo & Maxie's across from Equifax in midtown is closed. Never had
a chance to go there, but I knew a couple people renting humidor space.

A Biltmore District?
The owners of the Biltmore are getting pretty agressive leasing out space.
First was the Fountainhead owners opening the swanky Halo bar and they
just announced a new restaurant will be opening there soon.  Did this
all start with Thad & Joe's?

Near CNN Center
There's supposed to be a new Mexican place where Reggie's used to be
called "Don Juans" with a patio on Techwood and the corner spot
is now supposed to be a McCormick and Schmick's
