Another food truck park has sprung up, this time taking place on Saturday nights in Inman Park. Trucks will roll in each Saturday night from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. in the gravel lot across from Inman Perk. The first Inman Food Park - which will include Tex's Tacos, Westside Creamery, Boner's, Fry Guy, Hail Caesar and more - is this Saturday. This is a family and pet-friendly event.

Atlanta Magazine reports on the closing of Tomo’s Vinings location. The move was made so that energies can be focused on the new Buckhead location at the Ritz Carlton Residences. Chef/owner Tomohiro Naito said he made an effort to find enough quality staff members to keep both locations running, but was unable to find the talent he needed.

Richard Blais tweeted this week about house hunting in San Francisco. Is our Top Chef master looking to leave Atlanta in the dust? Seems unlikely on the heels of the news that Blais will be opening a new Midtown restaurant, but perhaps he’s planning on taking the fauxhawk bi-coastal?
