Chef Angus Brown — who with chef Nhan Le came to fame at Octopus Bar, their adventurous East Atlanta after hours eats-and-drinks hangout — has been in the news lately for kicking off a new pop-up series at the Cheetah.

For fans of Octopus Bar, though, the bigger news is that Brown and Le are just weeks away from opening a new full-service lunch and dinner restaurant called Lusca in the South Buckhead space once occupied by Bluefin.
