— Melissa Rudd and the team behind Da Vinci's Donuts are working on a new location in Dunwoody, Atlanta Magazine reports. The first franchised outpost for the local DIY doughnut shop will take up residence at 1447 Dunwoody Village Pkwy., and plans call for a fall opening. Franchisee Ryan Boon will run the new shop. "I started coming in here with my kid, because he loved the interactive component," Rudd told Atlanta. "We felt like we were part of this community." Da Vinci's currently has locations in Alpharetta and Sandy Springs.

— Poor Calvin's owner Calvin Phan will open a restaurant at 345 Edgewood Ave. NE in Sweet Auburn, according to What Now Atlanta. Hungry Ghost will be a "smaller, more simplified and inexpensive quick-service version" of Phan's original Midtown eatery. The new venture reportedly will serve lunch and dinner, and Phan seems to be targeting patrons of the Edgewood Avenue entertainment district with late-night hours. The name is apparently inspired by "a Chinese concept for creatures afflicted with insatiable desire, hunger, or thirst after death."

— The owners of Calle Latina have another Decatur project in the works. Michael Condon and Paul Vinces will open TrumanTomorrow's News Today reports, taking over the 123 East Court Sq. space that previously housed Colbeh Persian Kitchen & Bar. Truman will reportedly be modeled after Publicans, a "historic tavern" in Manhasset, N.Y., and it will serve lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. Look for a fall launch.
