Late-night, healthy Chinese take-out near Ansley Mall
Kong’s Kitchen, a Chinese take-out and delivery-only restaurant, is opening at 1584 Piedmont Road next door to Smith’s Olde Bar in Piedmont Heights between the Ansley Park and Morningside neighborhoods, the Atlanta Business Chronicle reports. Owner Tung Lee Kong says Kong’s Kitchen will be open until 3 a.m. in order to capture the late-night crowds spilling out of area nightclubs and bars who are looking for food options other than McDonald’s. Expect traditional Chinese take-out dishes like the oft-ordered chicken or beef with broccoli but with a healthier twist. The restaurant plans to open in June. [ATLBizChron]
