Heirloom Market BBQ: Where there is smoke….
Heirloom Market BBQ, Atlanta’s most promising new smokehouse of 2010, had to suddenly close their barely opened doors last week due to a minor fire. Thankfully, as reported by Mike over at BBQgeek, the fire kept to the outside of the restaurant and the only casualty was the outdoor walk in cooler. The cooler is being replaced and, according to the sign out front yesterday, Chef’s Cody Taylor and Jiyeon Lee are back at the smokers as of today.
Dynamic Dish: Say it ain’t so
Many details remain to be confirmed, but Atlanta’ Magazine’s Bill Addison dropped a Tweet-bomb on Atlanta’s foodies yesterday afternoon:
“David Sweeney just wrote to tell me that @dynamicdish is up for sale and will probably close soon. I’m devastated. Nothing more to say.”
There is no official word on this from the folks at Dynamic Dish, so this only qualifies as a rumor. And that’s where I hope this one stays. I know that I won’t be the only one saddened to see such a unique addition to Atlanta’s culinary landscape disappear. No close date seems to have been set, so if you’ll miss Dynamic Dish as much as I will, you’d better get there while the gettin’ is still good.
Maybe, with enough patronage, we can convince Sweeny to change his mind.
UPDATE – 11/18/10 - Sweeny has confirmed that Dynamic Dish will close their doors for good after Thanksgiving day.
Yeah! Burger opens in VaHi
Shaun Doty’s Yeah! Burger opened their newest location yesterday in Virginia Highlands. As far as I can tell, there isn’t much of a difference in either the menu or the décor between the new location and the original Westside spot.
Set right at the intersection of North Highland and Virginia Ave., the nighttime between-bar foot traffic that the new Yeah! can expect on the weekends puts this in a prime spot. I’m going to suggest they actually extend their hours for the VaHi location, because few things cap off a solid night of imbibing like a greasy burger and fries.
