Aromas is Closing; The Pine is Coming to Five Points

Heirloom Café recently announced that Jackie Burton, who took over as its chef around December, is moving on, to be replaced this month by Sal Speights of The World Famous.

What’s Jackie doing? Well, Aromas, in Five Points, which has operated successfully pouring wine, beer and coffee for 13 years now, will be closing May 25 and reopening as The Pine, with Burton in the kitchen. She describes the new venture as “wood-fired oven, casual Southern/fusion” and says it will open as “soon as we renovate the space… shooting for mid-August.”

Lest you think Aromas is being booted out, owner Sachin Patel is still involved with the new venture, as is local wine dude Scott Parrish.
