Quick Bites: Joy Cafe plans to leave Buckhead, Sylvan Hills gets a new restaurant, and more

Photo credit:

The team behind Kaleidoscope Bistro & Pub plans to open Jefe's Tacos & Tequila, at TOWN Brookhaven, according to Tomorrow’s News Today. The new resto will focus on authentic Mexican cuisine and is slated to open this fall in the former Noche Tequila & Tapas Bar space.

Buckhead’s Joy Cafe will relocate to Midtown, “just a few blocks” from the Alta Midtown residential building by late summer or early fall, according to a comment on Alta’s Facebook page. The restaurant’s owners confirmed the move but have not released any further details.

Yeah! Burger co-founder and CEO Erik Maier, has changed the name of his upcoming restaurant from Juicy Green to upbeet, Tomorrow’s News Today reports. The new Westside resto, located at 1071 Howell Mill Road, will serve grain bowls, protein plates, acai and yogurt bowls, seasonal sides, organic juices and smoothies, and more, according to the upbeet website.

Chef Carl Redding hopes to end the Sylvan Hills' status as a restaurant desert with his new concept, Redding’s Restaurant, which is slated to open by late summer. Redding signed a 15-year lease for a space near Atlanta Metropolitan State College and Atlanta Technical College where he plans to serve healthy Southern food and barbecue. Expect baked chicken with multi-grain waffles and 100 percent maple syrup and low sodium, low sugar barbecue rubs and sauces.

Rumor mongering: Sources say that Sweet Auburn BBQ’s Howard Hsu and his mother are planning to open a resto in Krog Street Market.

Editor's note: This post has been updated to correctly identify the neighborhood in which Redding's Restaurant is located. It is located in Sylvan Hills.

After being open less than a year, Linton’s in the Garden, Linton Hopkins’ restaurant in the Atlanta Botanical Garden, will be renamed Longleaf. The new name is a reference to the longleaf pine, an evergreen indigenous to the Southeast. Hopkins says the rebranding will cut out the middleman between the Garden and diners. Hopkins will stay on as a chef adviser while Jason Paolini steps into the executive chef role and become an employee of the Garden.
