1) East Atlanta: Tim Faulkner is on board at Octopus Bar. The cocktail expert worked most recently at H&F Bottle Shop and can now be found— after 10 p.m.— at O Bar. Owner Angus Brown says that Faulkner "shares the same philosophy on drinks and wine as [Brown does] with food," and that "his drinks are amazing and his wine knowledge is superb," so do be sure to swing by and say hello soon.

2) Roswell: The Mill Kitchen and Bar has a new chef, Benjamin Castro. The restaurant recently got a one-star review in the AJC following the departure of chef Marc Taft, and now they've brought on Castro, who worked previously at Pura Vida and Bluepointe, to "correct bad habits." There seems to have been a bit of drama as well (the term "temper tantrum" may have been mentioned); you can read about that here. [OTP Shuffles]

2) Midtown: Craig Richards is no longer the executive chef of Ecco. The Fifth Group restaurant is currently looking for a replacement, so call 'em up to drop your name in the hat. More jobs here! [Chef Shuffles]
