Insomnia Cookies Midtown Atlanta to Open at University House

University House Midtown Atlanta July 28, 2015Looks like Midtown Atlanta will be getting another location for your sweet tooth! The Sweet Hut Bakery opened in Metropolis Midtown last year and seems to be doing well. Now,  you’ll have a spot for your cookie craving!

Insomnia Cookies Midtown Atlanta to Open at University House

Insomnia Cookies is a rapidly expanding late-night bakery concept that was founded in a college dorm room in 2003 at the University of Pennsylvania, by then student, Seth Berkowitz. I can so see the success of such an idea….back in college, it’s midnight and you want something sweet! AND it can be delivered? Holy Cow!  They specialize in delivering warm, delicious cookies right to the doors of individuals and companies alike. So all you GATech students….get ready for cookies!

Insomnia Cookies Midtown Atlanta July 28, 2015Insomnia Cookies has offerings of cookies, brownies, cookie cakes and even cold milk. Some locations serve and deliver ice cream…let’s hope that will be the case at the Insomnia Cookies Midtown Atlanta!  Residents in nearby Plaza Midtown, Aqua and MidCity Lofts will have a convenient spot for a late night sweet snack. It looks like you will need to make your coffee at home! And if you are a MARTA commuter, the store is just a block and a half from the Midtown MARTA station…grab a few cookies for the kids and the ride home!

The website for Insomnia Cookies also has great suggestions such as sending gifts to your college student! (Take note all of those parents we have sold Midtown Atlanta condos to for their GATech student!!) Looks like they will also do birthday gifts or group orders for your next event or meeting.

MyMidtownMojo.com looks forward to welcoming Insomnia Cookies Midtown Atlanta! We’ll be sure to sample them and let you know!

University House is scheduled to open next month in time for the Fall session at GATech. If you’ve driven by..they got some work to do, so we will expect to see the businesses open soon thereafter!

Establishment Midtown July 28, 2015It looks like another Buckhead favorite wants to join the excitement of Midtown Atlanta!

Establishment of Buckhead will soon be Establishment Midtown and call Colony Square home! I have to say I never visited this watering hole while it was in Buckhead, but it looks to have a pretty cool vibe going on! I can see it being an awesome place for one of the after parties for the Atlanta Film Festival, who’s 40th Anniversary is in 2016!!

Keep an eye out for more news of the opening of Establishement Midtown and some follow up photos from MyMidtownMojo.com

Buford Highway Dining — It’s a Whole World In Itself

BuHi Dining Doraville GAAtlanta residents love, repeat L O V E their restaurants! Just walk up and down Peachtree Street in Midtown, and you will have at least 2 or more restaurants on any given block. I once heard a statistic that the average Atlantan spends 70% of their monthly food budget in a restaurant! Not sure if that is still the case, but we have the restaurants to handle it.

But you may not always want to eat at the same place, right? May you have an international taste bud? Well then, have I got the place for you….Buford Highway! Or it can be called The Buford or now I’ve heard BuHi.

Buford Highway Dining — It’s a Whole World In Itself

First off…it’s really easy to get to…at least by car. Take West Peachtree out of Midtown, and follow the signs. Don’t get on I-85 or GA400. Just keep going…and you are on Buford Highway! And you will quickly see the ethnic diversity of this corridor! Brookhaven will start off with more Hispanic, and then as you move into Chamblee and Doraville, you’ll find Vietnamese pho, shrimp wrapped in tofu skin, or banh mi, then you have come to the right place. (Mind you two of those dishes I can’t even imagine!)

But, most of this cuisine is just not up my alley. But here’s a great article from Bon Appetit that will fill you in on some of the hot spots on what they now call BuHi!

Eat The World Along Atlanta’s Buford Highway

While actors and crew may not be able to break away from set during the day, many of these restaurants are close by to Third Rail Studios and the Assembly Doraville development.

Whole Foods Coming To Midtown

Whole Foods Midtown June 16, 2015For those of you in love with the organic grocery that is all over Atlanta, you are going to have one gosh darn close to your Midtown Atlanta condo. But don’t get out the reusable grocery bag just yet.

On June 9th, plans for an “organic grocery store” were presented to the Design Review Committee (DRC) of the Midtown Alliance. While the developer has tried to keep the store name quiet, the Whole Foods name got dropped numerous times. That and the fact that Related executives (the store is to be part of a residential tower being developed by Miami-based The Related Group) appeared before the Development Review Committee with Phillips Partnership, a firm that has designed seven Whole Foods (NADAQ: WFM) stores, including locations in Sandy Springs and Savannah, might be a pretty good indication as to WHO that organic grocery store will be.

Architect Rob French, with Phillips Partnership, presented renderings of the project, which would stand next to a proposed residential tower at 14th and West Peachtree streets. Miami-based The Related Group is the developer.

But as I mentioned earlier, hold on to that grocery bag. It looks like mid-2016 before a ground breaking, and an opening in 2018!!!  Shreek…that is some 2 PLUS years away!
