Here’s a quick look at what’s going on in restaurants around the Decatur area.

The Comet Pub & Lanes slated for Suburban Plaza is getting closer to opening. The projected opening date is sometime this month and the company announced on Facebook it is hiring staff to run the new bowling alley, which will be located in the former Suburban Lanes. The Comet Pub will be owned and managed by the owners of Twain’s in Decatur.

Owner Uri Wurtzel previously told Decaturish The Comet Pub & Lanes will have hand-tossed pizza, craft beers, and a full kitchen and bar.

The Facebook post says:


The Comet Pub & Lanes is hiring all positions!

The Comet is one of the most anticipated openings of the summer! Featuring 32 bowling lanes with the newest scoring system, hand tossed pizza, burgers, 16 draft beers, 60 more craft beers in cans/bottles, hand crafted cocktails, darts, deck shuffleboard, a large bar made from a vintage wooden bowling lane, and extra seating through out.

Just a mile outside of downtown Decatur, and our sister store Twain’s Brewpub & Billiards, The Comet will become a staple in the Decatur scene, for families during the day, league bowlers, and the bar crowd at night!

We are hiring BOH for pizza cooks, line cooks, prep cooks, dishwashers.

FOH we are hiring, servers, bartenders, and front desk help.

The restaurant will be owned by Chris Martha, a Decatur resident. The press release says, Scout will feature “local, Southern ingredients, as well as redefining classic comfort foods in a social setting.”

Gunshow in Atlanta continues its “Hired Guns” series in June. The restaurant, owned by celebrity chef Kevin Gillespie, will bring in chef Kenny Gilbert of Gilbert’s Underground Kitchen in Fernandina Beach, Fla., to the restaurant on Sunday, June 12 and Monday, June 13. Gillespie is also behind Revival restaurant in Decatur.

“Gilbert, best known for his appearance on the seventh season of ‘Top Chef,’ where he became one of the most likeable contestants in the show’s history, will mingle with diners and share his innovative take on tropical and traditional cuisine,” a press release says. “A limited number of tickets are available for purchase starting at 8 a.m. on May 12 via Xorbia. The cost is $95 per person (not including drinks, tax and gratuity).”
