Bell Street Burritos opens a new location
Matt Hinton, proprietor of Bell Street Burritos in the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, has officially opened a second location in Atlanta’s Westside neighborhood. Today is the official grand opening where there will be discounts and giveaways offered at the Westside restaurant between 6-9 p.m.
Below is the formal press release (edited for length):
Atlanta, GA- After only one year open at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, Bell Street Burritos will open its second location this coming week, this time on the Westside. Bell Street Owner and former religion professor, Matt Hinton, has set up shop in the former Social House at Howell Mill and Chattahoochee and will be open for more normal hours than the Sweet Auburn Curb Market’s schedule has allowed, giving Atlantans more opportunities to try the burrito named by USA Today as one of the ten best in the country.
[Hinton] opened the original Bell Street Burritos at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, which had limited hours and allowed him to dip his toe in the business without jumping in. Pretty soon, demand exceeded these hours and he began seeking away to accommodate folks for whom the Curb Market’s hours were unworkable.
Our commitment is to help our customers find ‘their burrito’. Whether it’s a pork and green chili with salsa fresca or potato and broccoli with chipotle salsa, we will find your burrito.
Bell Street Burritos, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays, 11 a.m.-10p.m. Fridays-Saturdays, closed Sundays, 1663 Howell Mill Road.
So Ba in East Atlanta offers late night dining alternative
So Ba Vietnamese restaurant has recently opened a late night dining option in the form of Octopus Bar. Anyone looking for dining options other than hash browns prepared 80 different ways, can now journey out to the East Atlanta restaurant during the hours of 10 p.m.-3 a.m., Mondays-Saturdays.
Unfortunately, I’m usually in bed at those hours so I haven’t sampled the intriguing menu that involves the collaboration between So Ba chef/owner Nhan Le and former Miller Union chef Angus Brown. (It hints of gastro with a nod to Le’s background.)
Octopus Bar, 10 p.m.-3 a.m., Mondays-Saturdays, 560 Gresham Ave., Atlanta. 404-627-9911.
