A takeout location of Summerhill barbecue restaurant Wood’s Chapel BBQ opens in June at Krog Street Market. Called Wood’s Chapel BBQ Shortstop, the stall takes over the former Grand Champion BBQ space at the food hall. The menu will mostly feature the restaurant’s barbecue sandwiches and sides. Wood’s Chapel is owned by Rye Restaurants Group, which owns food stalls Fred’s Meat and Bread and Yalla at Krog Street Market, the General Muir at Emory Point and Sandy Springs, and TGM Bread. Group owners Ben and Jen Johnson and Shelly Sweet also own West Egg Cafe on Howell Mill Road. [Official]

Brash Coffee launches a mobile coffee bar at the Works soon

Atlanta coffee company Brash launches a mobile coffee bar called Brash Beast Saturday, May 29, at the Works complex, home to food hall Chattahoochee Food Works. The coffee truck will serve Brash coffee and pastries throughout the day. The coffee bar is initially expected to be open Thursday through Sunday, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. An additional location should be announced in the coming months.

“The vision when retrofitting this 1968 Citroen was to remain true to its original patina and vintage look while transforming the interior to a beautiful coffee bar,” McLeod says of the mobile coffee bar.

McLeod and Stop Think Chew chef Julia Kesler Imerman are teaming up to open Brash Kitchen at the development early next year. Once open in the Maker’s building, the all-day cafe will serve dishes influenced by Kesler Imerman’s Jewish and South African background and McLeod’s Australian roots. [Official]

East Atlanta Village becomes the next location for Woody’s Cheesesteaks

A location of Atlanta cheesesteak institution Woody’s Cheesesteaks is slated for the six-stall food hall Southern Feed Store opening in the old Graveyard Tavern space in East Atlanta Village, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle. Expected to open this summer, Woody’s joins Brazilian coffee and cocktail bar Buteco at the food hall. In addition to Buteco and Woody’s, one stall at Southern Feed Store allows for an outdoor smokehouse and could be used to serve barbecue. Pellerin Real Estate, the developer behind the Beacon in Grant Park where Buteco is located, purchased the century-old building last February. Buteco owner Rafael Pereira serves as both a partial owner in Southern Feed Store and its general manager. Woody’s original Midtown location opened in 1975 off of Monroe Drive. A second location opened in 2019 on Irby Avenue in Buckhead. [ABC/EATL]
