My world's collided last week when Top Flr's Darren Carr turned up at a party for my day job (read: job that pays me). Turns out he and his partners are cooking up a new Street to Table restaurant, Sound Table, to open very soon in the old Over da Edge space at the corner of Edgewood and Boulevard.
I don't have full details yet, but here's what I do know. Darren, like me, is fed up with the whole farm to table shtick. Not only is that so 2008, but it's also something that should just be done without fanfare. So instead, Sound Table will focus on street food, which does indeed seem to be new "it" cuisine. Inc Street Food in Roswell and Tuk Tuk in Peachtree Hills are both new restaurants focused on that trend, too, but fortunately Sound Table will finally bring street food to my neck of the woods. Now if only Atlanta could get some actual street food!
Carr's partner has a music background, so that will be a part of the scene, too, with live music/DJs playing upstairs. Hope to have more details to share soon!
