The Athens branch of the Flying Biscuit, which started as one smallish restaurant in Atlanta’s Candler Park and now extends all over the place as a franchise, is officially open, running various specials all week on Prince Avenue in the new Prince Park development across from the hospital. The Barberitos in the same building is still a work in progress.
Creature Comforts is hosting a drive-through plant sale for Troublesome Creek Farm this Thursday through Saturday, mostly edible stuff like Carolina black peanuts, sorrel, fancy watermelons and the like.
Apr. 1, in compensation for being a general annoyance, is also National Burrito Day, so Barberitos is offering $6 chicken burritos.
Butter Bites catering is open on Cherokee Road, in the building with Wok Star, doing pick-up meals for lunch or dinner. Check Facebook for offerings.
A craft distillery looks to be coming to Macon Highway, near River Club. In other words: fancy liquor.
The guys who own Buddha Bar and a bunch of other college bars (Sandbar, Double Barrel, etc.) are making progress on Paloma Park, in the former Uncle Ernie’s/Max downtown, which is an actual, honest-to-goodness restaurant focusing on small plates.
