There’s yet another new burger place on the map — one that has the makings of a local hangout. Chas D’Huyvetter, an East Cobb native and Pope High School graduate, recently opened Moxie Burger in East Cobb’s Paper Mill Village with a small group of local investors.

Moxie, meaning vigor, spirit and gumption, strives to play host to every palate with a variety of burgers made from ground beef, lamb or turkey, chicken breasts and portobello mushroom caps. Accompaniments include zucchini fries that will nearly fool your children, fried pickles, sweet potato fries and pimento cheese bites.

Judging by the crowds I observed on a recent visit, I’d say Moxie strikes a chord with the locals. Maybe it’s the lively patio complete with a children’s area. Or, maybe it’s the wine and beer they serve while you’re waiting in a line 20 people deep. Whatever it is, it seems to be working.

11 a.m. – 9 p.m. daily. 255 Village Parkway N.E., Marietta. 770-627-3201. $.

In other news:

  • Chef Bruce Logue, who recently vacated his post at La Pietra Cucina, has a new Atlanta restaurant in the works. There, he will continue making the extruded pasta for which he is known. His new Twitter handle references the restaurant’s name: @boccalupoatl.
  • Decatur’s No. 246 will be closed for a few days this week while serving as a set for the movie A.C.O.D. (Adult Children of Divorce) starring Amy Poehler, Adam Scott, Jessica Alba, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Jane Lynch. The restaurant will reopen for normal service on Friday.
