Rose + Rye chef and staff shuffles
Several members of the staff at the midtown restaurant housed in the historic “Castle” mansion have left. That includes its executive chef Lindsay Owens and chef de cuisine Anu Adebara, according to the AJC. Pastry chef De Londra Ellis is currently Rose + Rye’s interim chef. Co-owner Mike Latham did not go into what caused the departure last week but did reveal his rather ambitious plans for the mansion which include a bed and breakfast, an espresso and juice bar, and an outdoor patio for brunch. Latham has also opened a ground floor, late-night bar at the mansion called Expo open Thursday - Saturday. [AJC]

The newest Italian restaurant in the Old Fourth Ward now serves brunch on Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. A Mano announced the newest addition to their menu on Instagram last weekend. Think duck hash and pork belly with polenta, red eye gravy, and topped with a farm egg. [Instagram]
