LeRoy’s Fried Chicken is open for business. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, and offers a limited menu available for takeout only. Go get you some at 1021 Howell Mill Road.

H. Harper Station has a new chef. Evan Cordes has replaced Ethan Ray who took over from Duane Nutter back in February. Cordes has worked most recently at Cakes and Ale and Serpas.

The Atlanta Business Chronicle published renderings of the plan for the City Hall East overhaul (which will be known as Ponce City Market). Included in the plans for the development are 21,250 square feet of restaurant space, which developers hope will include a Food Hall to house “national and local restaurants, specialty foods, a gourmet market and prepared foods.”

Asha Gomez, creator and chef at Spice Route Supper Club, will open her first restaurant this fall. Cardamom Hill will be located on Northside Drive. According to the release, the restaurant’s menu will feature the same authentic Indian home cooking that the supper club is known for. The lunch menu will be a limited offering of vegetarian or meat Thali plates, as well as a chicken and waffles option. The dinner menu will feature an array of dishes that range in price from $12 to $25.

Sweet Auburn BBQ, which already operates a food truck, will be opening a storefront at (guess where?) Sweet Auburn Curb Market. The truck has always had ties to the market, they launched the truck as part of the monthly Urban Picnics held there. Though no official opening date has been announced, word is it will be very soon.
