Omnivore - Gravy Train: Swit Bakery coming to Westside, Hankook adding location

Also: Smashburger opens, food trucks at Underground


Swit Bakery, a new bakery and cafe, is coming to the Westside, opening shop next to Five Seasons Brewing. According to their Facebook page, they will be a European style bakery and serve both to-go treats for a quick breakfast and also provides the atmosphere for a lingering weekend brunch. Swit plans to open in November or December.

Hankook Taqueria, also the supplier of the popular Yumbii truck, will be open their second restaurant location. They’ll reportedly move into the shuttered Abrigo space (oh, by the way, Abrigo closed) in Midtown. They are aiming for a mid-August opening.

Atlanta’s first Smashburger location opened yesterday at Sydney Marcus and Piedmont. Smashburger serves up the typical fast-casual burger joint options including grilled burgers ("smashed to order"), chicken sandwiches, salads, fries and the like. They offer a variety of toppings, but stick to the classics - you won’t find any foie gras here. The menu will feature a special Atlanta Burger, topped with peach BBQ sauce, Wicked Pimena cheese, grilled jalapeños and Vidalia coleslaw along with an Atlanta Dog with similar toppings.
