Ian Jones, proprietor of Victory Sandwich Bar and Paper Plane, is frustrated. Originally, he had a May opening in mind for Victory Sandwich Bar’s new Inman Park location (913 Bernina Avenue, the space formerly home to Park’s Edge). Then he figured July.

A major change of guard took place at LEON’s Full Service earlier this fall, but if all goes as planned, the only difference guests will note is new leadership. Longtime LEON’s barkeeps Shanna Mayo and Kathryn DiMenichi now co-manage the heralded program after restaurant-opener Miles Macquarrie headed down the road to oversee drink happenings at Kimball House. Mayo and DiMenichi share around 20 years of bar experience between them, and spearhead a stellar team that make, pour, and expertly recommend their way around craft cocktails and beer, and an inviting wine list.
