Never a shortage of restaurant news around here…

The eagerly-anticipated Brush Sushi Izakaya is planning to open in the next few months. In an interview with Atlanta Magazine, the owners said the sushi restaurant will open in January. However, in an Instagram post, inquirers were told the restaurant is trying to open in December. Fingers crossed…

Chef Billy Allin of the award-winning Cakes & Ale is teaching a cooking class at Emory University. It’s called the “Three Sisters” cooking class and will focus on traditional Native American foods of corn, beans, and squash (known as the three sisters.) The Emory calendar says Chef Allin will demonstrate “his creative approach to delicious and healthy dishes using these staples of the Native American diet.” Registration is required by calling 404-727-6118.

Twain’s Brewpub & Billiards’ spicy pumpkin hummus made it onto a list of “Pumpkin Menu Items to Snatch Up this Fall” on the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau website. The Iberian Pig’s grilled lamb chops with oven-roasted pumpkin also made the list.

Marco’s Pizza is opening soon at 227 N. McDonough Street. Decatur Metro noticed a sign hung on the side of the old Books Again building and the Marco’s website said the location is “coming soon.”

Parker’s on Ponce is offering a five-course “meet the chef” dinner. It will feature autumn-inspired dishes created by the new Executive Chef, Andrew Brookins, according to the Decatur Minute. It costs $55 per person. To make reservations, call 404-924-2230.

Many area restaurants will have fun cocktails and menu items in the spirit of Halloween this Saturday. We’ll keep adding more Saturday events to our article Where to Go on Halloween. Keep your eyes peeled!
