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?

I really miss the Globe — that was one of my favorite Atlanta restaurants. Any news about the former owners of the Globe opening a new place somewhere in town?

Yes, you’re in luck! Oswald Morgan has opened Kozmo Gastro Pub in Alpharetta.

It looks like the new A&M may already be on the way out…

Thanks for the info on Kozmo. I’m not sure I’ll make it up to Alpharetta any time soon, but it’s good to know he’s still in the restaurant business. Here’s me hoping they open a second location in midtown :)

Damn A&M looks like a real dump! In fact it looks like a “Private Booth” strip place. Nasty dirty kitchen too.

Good luck selling that.
