Transmet West, on Oglethorpe Avenue, has announced that its last day in business will be this Sunday, May 22. An all-you-can-eat buffet will be available for $12 per person that day, and beer and wine will run you only a buck to clear out as much inventory as possible. Also: live music.
It's the rare eatery that actually opens when it says it will, between contractors, health inspections and getting funding squared away. Athenians will be pleased to know, however, after some months of peering in the windows, that Zombie Coffee and Donuts is opening its branch downtown (in the former Your Pie, on Broad) next Monday, May 23.
Piedmont College's Cafe on Prince, which has been serving up good Southern cooking, cafeteria style, for some time now, will close after today, as Pete reported in Pub Notes. The college intends to repurpose the space for academics, which is understandable, even if a loss to good fried chicken.
One of the founders of local hipster supper-club The Four Coursemen, Damien Schaefer, is looking to start a brewpub in Decatur called Normaltown Artisanal Brewery & Cucina, and he's seeking investors from across Georgia.
The James Beard Awards released both its book/journalism awards and the shortlist of restaurant/chef awards yesterday, and Five & Ten didn't make the cut for "best restaurant" (see our earlier post about the nomination).

After a bit of a delay (the original date was August), the Athens location of Fatburger, the national chain based in California, is open in the Beechwood shopping center, inside Buffalo's, its sister operation. It's the only Fatburger currently open in the state of Georgia; locations in Atlanta and Marietta did exist but closed.
Big Daddy Mike's Barbecue Bar and Grill, the restaurant evolution of a BBQ sauce company that also does catering, will open soon in what was most recently Dickey's Barbecue Pit, on Hawthorne, near its intersection with Oglethorpe/Tallassee.
Groove Burgers, a brand-new burger joint from Bridger Loftin (of Loco's), could have a soft opening this weekend, in the new Epps Bridge shopping center, by Kinnucans. The concept seems potentially franchisable, which wouldn't be a surprise, but for now it's a rare independent business in the Epps Bridge area.
Yet to determine a location is Burger 21, which is a franchise, with locations in Buckhead, Johns Creek and the Mall of Georgia, as well as in many other states. Its menu is a little more voluminous, and it offers seafood burgers, sliders, chicken tenders, hot dogs, turkey chili and an array of shakes and floats.
