Bell Street Burritos celebrates new location and more news

In other news:

  • Taqueria El Vecino has been closed for renovations and hopes to reopen next week. The Taqueria and its sister bakery next door, Carolyn’s Cupcakes, took down the wall separating the two spots, enabling them to expand both the kitchen and dining areas. The new space will feature an additional 40 seats and an expanded bar offering three draught beers, additional bottled beers and small batch bourbon and tequila selections. Taqueria El Vecino’s new menu will contain the smoked meats for which the restaurant is known, as well as traditional barbecue plate and side options. The bakery will continue to take special orders and will serve as a dessert counter for the restaurant. 2743 Lavista Road, Atlanta.

I guess he’s afraid that if he goes to the Old Fourth Ward, he’ll be tempted to buy some chocolates from that place in the Irwin Street Market next to Jake’s and Bell Street.

Nothing says hipster breakfast like candied kumquat sorghum and foie gras butter on my flapjacks. Can I get a PBR with that?

I guess there is a difference (at least for me) between “hanging out” and going to grab a burrito??? ‘Cuz I WILL be going…yummy!! But I guess that’s just me…

O4W = Rathbun’s, Rathbun Steak, Church (it’s a bar!), Noni’s, The Sound Table, Across the Street, Joy Stick, Cafe Circa, Jake’s Ice Cream, Miso Izakaya, Ammazzo, Harold’s Chicken, Beltline, O4W Park, the soon to be Ponce Market and lots more on the way. If you don’t come down and hang out it’s your loss.

Great Sandwich!

Those brunch items at The Lawrence sound just too contrived to be enjoyable. Though, I’m sure the glamourazi will “Oooo!” and “Ahhhh!” over them whether they like them or not.

Mark- The railroad is the dividing line between O4W and Inman Park, so some of those (Rathbun’s, etc.) are Inman Park. It’s easy to get confused if you don’t live here, but I thought you would want to know.

Wow sharon, aren’t you just a pleasant person. Mark was actually supporting the area. So what if he was off because of some railroad tracks. Can you name the border of every single neighborhood in town?

Thanks for the info…I do enjoy the Inman Park area at times.
