Little City Diner

As previously mentioned, Atlanta juice chain Arden’s Garden has been looking at opening a location in downtown Athens, and its PR folks have now confirmed that it will take over the former Planet Smoothie, downstairs from Subway on College Avenue, which means that, although it’s not on the same block as Juice Up and Journey Juice, you do not have to cross the street to get to it. ETA is unannounced.

Starting Oct. 9, Little City Diner in Winterville, which is already one of the most underrated brunch/breakfast places around, will be open for dinner, too, Thursday–Saturday until 8:30 p.m., giving the good folks out there another, sorely needed option for eating out.

Taj Mahal, the Indian, Afghan, etc. grocery at Alps and Broad, has closed, after moving to that location from Baxter Street. Dang it. 

If you’re looking for something a good step up from wings and pizza to eat during UGA football home games, remember that The National does a $32 three-course prix-fixe (with seatings from 5–6:30 p.m.) that includes score updates if requested.
