In the news…

Ricardo Ullio, owner of Sotto Sotto and Fritti, is gearing up for the openings of his 2 news restaurants, Beleza and Cuerno. Beleza will be a Brazilian-inspired restaurant with a focus on healthy foods–I believe there will be some raw dishes as well. It is slated to open on the 14th of this month.

Cuerno will be a Spanish restaurant–something we desperately need in this town–with dishes like Paella and other regional specialties. Cuerno will not be open until the Fall. Both restaurants will be located in the 905 Juniper Street building.

Chef Nicolas Bour has scored the position as head chef at the Farmhouse at Serenbe as their current chef embarks on a sabbatical. I am looking forward to getting down there to see what Nicolas does with the menu.

Batdorf and Bronson, my current favorite coffee, will be opening a cafe in Decatur. It should be open by the Fall. More details later on location and opening date. I believe it will be called Dancing Goats Cafe or something along those lines.

This week is Downtown Restaurant week (August 13-19) which means you can get a three course meal for about $25 at participating restaurants. I can’t say the list is all that enticing, but there are a couple that might be worthwhile. You can view the list here.

That is it for today. Please let me know if you have any other good tidbits of restaurant news for me by emailing me at

I am also very interested in insider experiences at local restaurants. Have any juicy gossip about the restaurant you work at? Let me know. Your identity will be protected.

    theres no way belleza will be open this month and probably not even next month, go by and look at the construction. As for juicy gossip…Seeger is back in Atlanta, he’s been at my restaurant the past 2 saturday nights.

    S. Easy (or is it Speakeasy?): I drove by today and it looks like you are correct. I got bad information. They are no where close to being open.
