With the help of culinary director Ian Winslade and former executive chef Tom Harvey, Murphy hopes to open by early April.
Now that Timone’s Pizza, which opened in March, is operating smoothly, Morningside chef and restaurateur Ron Eyester is free to focus on his first venture outside of Morningside: a diner called Diner. Located in Atlantic Station in the space formerly home to FOX Sports Grill, 264 19th Street, Diner will take aspects of traditional diners and update them.
Taste of Atlanta is only a couple of weeks away. This year’s food fest, held October 25 through 27 at Tech Square, features samples from more than ninety local restaurants, four stages of cooking demonstrations, a barcraft competition, and a “Taste Revival” kickoff event hosted by Ron Eyester of Rosebud, the Family Dog, and Timone’s.
Pizza places are often casual, kid-friendly and varied enough to please just about everyone—making them an easy neighborhood hangout. In that vein it makes sense that Ron Eyester, a chef and restaurateur known for Morningside gathering spots Rosebud and the Family Dog, would choose pizza for his next venture, Timone’s.
Ron Eyester, owner and chef at Rosebud and the Family Dog, has big plans for 2013. He intends to open an authentic New York-style pizzeria in Morningside in June—contingent on getting the lease signed this week. He also wants to open a diner, conveniently named Diner, in the old Fox Sports Grill space in Atlantic Station, aiming for a December opening.
Not everything makes Ron Eyester angry. Rosebud’s executive chef may have earned the moniker The Angry Chef for calling out annoying customer habits on Twitter and other public forums, but I didn't call to listen to him “keep the landscape realistic,” as he puts it. I had a different question: what was his most memorable and influential dining experience?
