There's good news and bad news for fans of Smyrna's Heirloom Market BBQ: The bad news is that effective immediately, the restaurant on Akers Mill Road no longer offers in-house dining. Starting tomorrow, it'll open for to-go orders and catering only due to a ruling from the Cobb County DOT, which forbids parking on unpaved surfaces. They've also been told that diners can no longer eat on the barbecue joint's patio.
The good news is that owners Cody Taylor and Jiyeon Lee have another restaurant in the works. This one will not serve barbecue, and it will replace Kitsch'n 155 on Clairmont Road. The restaurant will be local-driven, and Lee will take the lead in the kitchen, which means the menu will have Korean influences. The team isn't ready to reveal much more than that quite yet, but the buildout has started, so look for more details soon.
