After twelve years in Decatur, Taco Mac Sports Grill will be updating its look. The restaurant and bar will close at the end of business this Sunday, August 4, and reopen in October. During that time, Taco Mac will acquire a new street front patio, new LED HDTVs, and more comfortable seating options. In addition, the bar area will be expanded and feature one hundred draft beer taps.
Farm Burger announced last week that Terry Koval, the chef that helped launch and run the original Decatur location of the growing chain, has left his position. Koval will be heading to the Wrecking Bar in Inman Park as head chef. The Wrecking Bar opened last year with a menu mostly centered around the beers brewed on site at the restaurant. We caught up with Koval to ask him a few questions about the move and his plans for the Wrecking Bar.
ATL Food Chatter: September 27, 2011 (To receive the Chatter and other culinary tidbits directly in your inbox, sign up for our weekly dining newsletter)Dan Latham’s recent jump to the Farm Burger team left local observers somewhat mystified, since it was assumed—and hoped for—that the chef who once worked at New York’s Babbo and who ran a beloved restaurant, L & M’s Kitchen and Salumeria, in would ultimately open a brick and mortar version of his pizza truck, Moto Bene, in Atlanta. Instead, Latham, the James Beard Award nominated chef, now helms the kitchen at the new Farm Burger Buckhead and serves as corporate chef for the dynamic Athens based operation. Farm Burger—part of a collective that includes Athens-based Moonshine Meats and restaurant Farm 255—is co-owned by Jason Mann, a farmer whose goal is to create a more sustainable agricultural system in Georgia and beyond. Latham and Mann met last spring and hit it off; Latham helms the kitchen at Farm Burger’s newly opened second location in Buckhead.
