Omnivore - Gravy Train: Seed Kitchen and Bar, Ullio tries Midtown again

Doug Turbush, formerly of Bluepointe, will be opening his own restaurant, Seed Kitchen and Bar, in East Cobb’s Merchant’s Walk shopping center. “The cuisine is modern American. The menu will be very approachable, reflect local ingredients and inspirations from my life, my experience and travels in America, Asia, Europe, and Mexico,” Turbush said of his new venture. “I have lived in East Cobb for ten years, it has some of the best demographics for opening a business in metro Atlanta, the area is filled with great people.” Over the past year, the Merchant’s Walk center has undergone major renovations and added several new tenants including Marlow's Tavern, Gigi’s Cupcakes, Pinkberry, Mirko Pasta and Whole Foods (coming soon).

What Now Atlanta reported earlier this week that Riccardo Ullio is planning to open El Escorpion in the former Eno space in Midtown.

Midtown’s BAKESHOP recently began hosting BYOB dinners in partnership with local caterer The Hungry Peach. The set three-course menu, which changes weekly, is served at communal tables. Pony up $40 for your seat.
