Front Burner: Farmstead 303 hires Ryan Stewart as chef

2341245143_7676993af4-w650-h400-300x225A source at Feast in Decatur has confirmed that  Ryan Stewart will be the new chef at Farmstead 303 — the new, soon-to-open venture across the street that replaces the defunct Depeaux. Stewart, who is currently finishing up a gig at Mac McGee’s Irish Pub, earned a fan base for his work at the Glennwood in East Atlanta.

In other news:

  • The shuttered Eno by Zaza will reopen as 5th St. Cafe in June. Owner (and Hawks Forward-Center) Zaza Pachulia has brought in the team of A.D. Allushi and Chef Ian Winslade (the forthcoming Buckhead Bottle Bar) to rework the vinous concept into more of a French bistro, with a bakery/patisserie where the wine bar shop used to be.
  • Willamette Week is reporting that Brady Lowe — the Atlantan who travels the country with his  Cochon 555 porcine cook-off — landed in a Portland hospital with a leg fracture after getting into a fistfight with local chef Eric Bechard. The chef was apparently upset that Lowe allowed an Iowa pig into the locavore Valhalla of Portland.

So, the 2 Live Stews are branching out?

John, I saw these guys ( on Peachtree & Harris today — I was surprised because after all of the hubbub the last few months, I thought that food carts were illegal.

I saw a sign for Yeah Burger at White Provisions. Can’t remember if that’s been mentioned here or not, but seems like our little Westside ‘hood is getting flooded with the burger joints. What’s Yeah Burger about? And to think, I still haven’t even hit Flip!

Maybe they should’ve just put a local and Iowa pig into the ring and let them settle it?

Yeah Burger is Shaun Doty’s new restaurant. The sign says it’s supposed to open on June 3rd. From what I understand, it’s going to be organic and counter service like Taqueria del Sol.

Today the sign said June 10 for Yeah! Burger. I thought that 6/3 seemed a little ambitious.
