The food business is always hopping …

The Purple Corkscrew Wine Shop & Tasting Room is open for business in Avondale Estates.

The shop moved from Emory Village, citing damage to the building there. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned for Friday, Jan. 29 at 11 a.m. with a grand opening celebration set for Saturday, Jan. 30. from 12 p.m. until 9 p.m., according to a city email. A complimentary meet and greet wine tasting for the community will take place Tuesday, Feb. 2 from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m.

The shop’s hours of operation are:

Monday and Tuesday: 4-8 p.m.
Wednesday and Thursday: 12-8 p.m.
Friday and Saturday: 12-9 p.m.

Brush Sushi Izakaya posted a photo of new signage going up outside the highly-anticipated sushi restaurant.

As we told you in last week’s Tidbits, chef and owner Jason Liang said he is looking at a mid-February opening.

Leon’s Full Service in Decatur is hiring. The restaurant posted an ad on Craig’s List looking for full-time and part-time servers, hosts, and bartenders. The ad says, “If you are into sustainable farm-to-table foods, the misty history of absinthe, or how to play bocce ball, let’s talk! If you don’t know much about these things, but have always been curious, we’d be happy to teach you.”

Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe opened officially in Decatur Tuesday. The DeKalb County Chamber of Commerce tweeted a photo of the founder of Taziki’s at the store opening. It’s the fifth Taziki’s to open in Georgia.
