A few weeks ago, Jenny reported on the expansion plans of the popular Indian restaurant Bhojanic into Buckhead. Well, they aren’t the only local restaurants eyeballing new locations. Here are a few successful Atlanta favorites that will be cropping up across town, and beyond…
Community Q heads to the Westside
The popular Decatur barbecue spot will soon take over the old Burger Joe’s location on Marietta St. in West Midtown. Owner Dave Roberts has confirmed that the new location is currently slated to open in late June. Diners can expect the same ‘que (and almost more importantly, the same mac and cheese) that made the Decatur shop so popular to appear at the new location.
West Egg Café heads to the Eastside
The perpetually crowded West Egg Café, the popular brunch/breakfast spot in West Midtown, announced plans to open new location later this Fall near Emory University. The new location is being opened by West Egg owners Ben and Jennifer Johnson, but the pair doesn’t plan to open West Egg clone. The new concept will still focus on breakfast/brunch, but expect a different menu than the flagship Westside location.
Victory Sandwich Bar to open in Decatur
Inman Park’s popular sandwich spot, Victory Sandwich Bar, is moving into Decatur. Known for their small, creative sandwiches and delicious alcoholic slushies announced via the contact page of their website that a new location will soon arrive in Decatur. They will be moving into 340 Church Street, the old Karma Boutique/Johnny’s Pizza building. No word yet on when the new location will open, but it is in the works.
