Rashe's Cuisine (first covered here), the Jamaican restaurant set to take over the Tallassee Road space still best known as Caliente Cab and most recently home to Kabana, has an actual opening day set: Friday, June 13. Let's hope the ominous date doesn't bode poorly.
Owner Rashe Malcolm has been setting up at the West Broad Farmers Market on Tuesday evenings to retail her food and build an audience, and her business's Facebook page is here.
Bain Mattox's Automatic Pizza (yes, it has a name now!), in the former Pizza Hut at Oglethorpe and Prince, is underway again, after a brief hiatus while he worked on some of his many, many other projects.
Here is his description of what it'll offer: "NY Style Pizza (Pies and Slices), Subs, Salads, Cannoli, Beer, Wine, Soft Drinks." Also: lunch and dinner, seven days a week. Opening date is not yet set, but those interested in a job should investigate at Normal Bar.
