Bhojanic, the popular Decatur Indian restaurant, will open a new location this summer at Shops Around Lenox. The Buckhead location will serve Northern Indian dishes, with seating for 135, plus a full bar. There will also be outdoor seating and event space. We heard back in December that Shops Around Lenox was focusing on bringing in local restaurants, and between Bhojanic and Seven Lamps, they are off to a strong start.

Joystick Gamebar, a new bar and lounge with - you guessed it - lots of games, will be opening on Edgewood Avenue. They'll take over the space left empty by Dynamic Dish.

Also on Edgewood, the Atlanta Business Chronicle is reporting that a pizza joint called Ammazza will open this summer. Run by two brothers, Ammazza plans to take inspiration from successful Neapolitan spots like Antico, but focus on using local ingredients rather than those imported from Italy. They'll make their mozzarella in house and have around 30 beers on tap.

Campagnolo, the new Midtown eatery from Peasant Group, is opening to the public on Monday, April 9. The cozy Italian spot will serve rustic dishes with a focus on freshness, featuring locally-sourced meats, and house-made yumminess including pasta and bacon.
