Yet-to-be-named restaurant to open in old MSR space
« on: December 18, 2017, 07:59 am »
This story's been making the rounds. A handful of Ford Fry and WB alumni are set to open a bar/restaurant in the Village. No date given for opening, but the write up for the project sounds promising.

Commence poo-pooing it as bougie, overpriced, and uninspiring in 3... 2... 1...

East Atlanta's newest restaurant is named, "Schism."  Restaurateurs and diswashers from the Wrecking Bar, Superica, and 246 are back, opening a hot, new eatery that answers the question, "Huh?"  This place has everything...Bong water orchids, beard shavings on the floor, wall art made of portraits you can only see with a blacklight, and homeless masturbators that call you by a stiff and cheeky nickname. 

Don't look for a sign, because there's just a little girl standing on the roof, yelling hilarious obscenities at passersby.  Inside, you sit on dirty footstools and eat locally foraged, inorganic trappings, topped off with flavored mayonnaise, served in a rusty hubcap.  Their signature dish is deconstructed gravy, salted beyond consumption, thrown at you by three surly waiters with handlebar mustaches. 

The drinks are all grass-derivatives, strained through a bandanna found on a MARTA bus, and mixed by a one-eyed Cher impersonator.  Instead of glasses, they're served in a broken lightbulb.  On the weekends, DJ Splashdazzle spins records on a hand-cranked turntable, wearing only a sequined Speedo.  He should wear more clothing, but you won't want him to after you have the house shot...A Roofie.  "What's that?" you ask.  Its that thing when you order a drink, and someone spikes it, and you wake up in the alley with no shoes, wondering why you have a tracking collar, and a new tattoo. 

Schism is only open on Saturday nights, from 9pm to 9:30pm, and then from midnight to 7am.  Reservations recommended.

Any idea what's going in next to Emerald City? I had heard it's recently been leased.

Well, it's not as good as Schism, but Banshee will have to do.

Late spring opening=a little optimistic.  Although it could be possible given that everything is already in place.  Either way I'm looking forward to it.
