Restaurant Openings (jobs available?)

The new Wild Wing Cafe will be located on Ashford-Dunwoody Road at Ashford Place in Dunwoody. The 7,400 square foot space Wild Wing will occupy was built as a Romano's Macaroni Grill

Memphis BBQ Co. will soon open in the former Smokey Bones / Firkin & Gryphon at the opposite end of the same center.

Takorea of Dunwoody is locally owned and will offer a fusion of Korean and Mexican cuisine.  The restaurant is opening soon in the Georgetown Shopping Center in the old Guthries location.

The Pub is coming to Dunwoody Perimeter Mall, filling former Hudson Grille space. I was at Perimeter Mall today and saw a storefront accepting employment applications.

Union Hill Kitchen is now open in downtown Chamblee at 5225 Peachtree Road, near the Chamblee MARTA station.  The restaurant is being opened by Chef Alexis Hernandez,who hails from Union City, New Jersey.  Research on Chef Alexis Hernandez, indicates that he was a finalist on The Next Food Network Star, season six.

Southbound is a second fine dining establishment in downtown Chamblee at 5394 Peachtree Road that is now open.

FYI, my local casual favorites are still Empire State Pizza for simple sit down and Gyro Gyro for eating on the run.  Local restaurants that I need to try are Carbonara Trattoria and it has been way to long since I was last at McKendrick's Steak House.   We are truely blessed with so many fine choices.

Finally as an add on, the new pet store Unleashed by Petco will open on Monday next to the Dunwoody Publix
