Pop-up Pho Cue opens this spring as a Glenwood Park restaurant

The pop-up that mixes Vietnamese flavors with central Texas barbecue opens as a Glenwood Park restaurant later this spring. Owned by Julian Wissman and Brian Holloway, Pho Cue opens in the former Festivals Jerk Chicken Grill space on Garrett Street. Wissman is currently a pitmaster at Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q in Candler Park and told the AJC recently the pop-up uses many of his wife’s family recipes from Thailand and Vietnam. The menu for the restaurant should be similar to the pop-up, featuring a variety of barbecue-based banh mi and pho with protein choices like pulled pork, smoked brisket, or smoked mushrooms. For the last several months, Pho Cue had been popping up every Sunday in the parking lot at Italian restaurant A Mano in the Old Fourth Ward. Follow on Instagram for updates. [EATL/AJC]

Hippin’ Hops brewpub to open in East Lake

A second location of Hippin’ Hops Brewery and Oyster Bar opens at the Hosea and 2nd complex in East Lake later this year, the AJC reports. The first location opens this month next door to Holy Taco on Glenwood Avenue in East Atlanta Village. When it debuts in EAV, Hippin’ Hops will become one of the first Black-owned breweries to open a permanent location in Georgia. Owned by Clarence Boston and Donnica Boston, the larger East Lake location offers more seating outdoors and a greater emphasis on food. Both restaurants are run by chef Jamarius “J.” Banks, who plans to offer dishes incorporating a variety of East Coast oysters, po’boys, and other seafood plates. Banks has appeared as a contestant on the Food Network competition show “Beat Bobby Flay.” Hippin’ Hops brewery plans to produce several styles of beer for on premise consumption and retail sales.

New Orleans-based Neyow’s Creole Cafe expands to Atlanta

New Orleans restaurant Neyow’s Creole Cafe opens an Atlanta location along Walker Street in the Castleberry Hill neighborhood this spring, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle. Owned by New Orleans natives Tamla Pierre-Taylor and Tim Dublecet, Neyow’s serves Creole fare like gumbo, Louisiana catfish, crawfish balls, and red beans and rice. In addition to indoor seating, the restaurant also features a rooftop patio with views of Mercedes-Benz Stadium and downtown Atlanta. Neyow’s is part of the redevelopment plans for a historic building on Walker Street backed by Atlanta-based H.J. Russell and Co. [ABC]

A new bar opens at Star Metals on Howell Mill Road this year

SMR Tap could open this winter at the emerging Star Metals complex on Howell Mill Road, the Atlanta Business Chronicle reports. According to an alcohol license application filed with the city, it appears the bar won’t feature food on its menu and focus solely on serving beer and wine, with seating for up to 40 people. Alabama-based coffee shop and roastery Prevail Roasters opened in November at the complex. The coffee shop, located on the ground floor residence lobby, features indoor and outdoor seating. Once construction is complete, Star Metals will include office, retail, and restaurant space, over 400 apartments with amenities like a rooftop pool and a dog park, and a 176-room hotel. [ABC]
