Restaurant news galore: The Globe turns, Agnes and Muriel’s decamps, and a pair of cakes
Are you ready for Waterhaven? No it’s not a theme park or a Danish furniture company.
That’s the proposed name of the restaurant going into the former Globe space in Georgia Tech’s Technology Square. The new owner has signed a long-term lease, according to Steve Josovitz of the Shumacher Group, who brokered the deal.
The concept? “An upscale/casual, farm-to-table American restaurant,” says Josovitz. Cymbal crash.
I have a call out to the new owner…more to come.
In other news:
- Agnes and Muriel’s — that charmingly kitsched-out Cougar Barbie meat-and-three in Midtown — has decamped to the former Café Dupri location in Buckhead, across from Bone’s.
- The ever-informative Decatur Metro blog reports that Button Cakes Bakery has opened inside Voilà restaurant on West Ponce. You know what they’re baking, right? Just say it: cupcakes.
- Johnny Cakes is preparing to open at 323 Walker Street in Castleberry Hill, next to City of Ink tattoo parlor. It will be a “fusion restaurant serving breakfast and lunch.” Does that mean wasabi hollandaise?
