The BeltLine gets a seafood shack, Grana's Neapolitan pizza and pasta comes to Dunwoody, and a Midtown restaurant serves pan-Latin eats in an exciting atmosphere.
Grindhouse Killer Burgers owners Alex Brounstein and Johnny Farrow never set out to open a seafood-centric restaurant. When they were approached about developing a long and skinny parcel of land along the Eastside BeltLine Trail in Reynoldstown, they didn’t have a concept in mind.

Take me to a minuscule bar with clever low-budget decor, shove a one-page menu under my nose that doesn’t look like typical pub fare, and I am sure to fall in love before even tasting anything.

Any given evening, most of the with-it young clientele sitting down to dinner at La Semilla aren’t full-time vegans. But that’s a large part of the draw at this new Latin restaurant on a hot stretch of Memorial Drive: It’s for everyone. And everyone appears to be eating here. Every table is full. The noise level is just right—cheerful, not deafening. Your interest is piqued, your instincts are rewarded—if you follow them through the tall doorway, set off by garlands of large green leaves painted onto the brick.

Anthony Spina Jr. started testing the public’s perception of his pies in 2021 with pop-ups at the Dairies that aligned with concerts at the the Eastern. There, guests could purchase his margherita, funghi, and Hot Boy (pepperoni with hot honey) pies. These will headline the brick-and-mortar menu, along with five other varieties.
Muchacho now includes an additional 1,200 square feet of indoor dining, previously home to deco-age tavern Golden Eagle—and features an expanded food and beverage program to go with it. The counter-service restaurant, which is also home to a large patio, now stays open until at least 10 p.m. to capitalize on the bar crowd.
