More Brunch at Seed; Christos Open on Sundays
A roundup of news and other items about the East Cobb dining scene.
It's been just over a year since Seed Kitchen & Bar took root at Merchant's Walk Shopping Center.
The much-talked-about Seed (1311 Johnson Ferry Road) was included among the "Best New Restaurants" of 2012 by Atlanta magazine.
In a recent interview with Atlanta Eater, owner and chef Doug Turbush said while he's generally been pleased with the reception, "something we're going to do differently is build up a bigger brunch crowd."
Earlier this week, Seed sent out notice that its Sunday brunch service now begins at 10 a.m. and has some changes on its expanded menu.
Among the new features are Create Your Own Omelette options and a Farmer's Breakfast with eggs any style and carmelized banana-pecan waffles.

Kouzina Christos (1453 Terrell Mill Road), which opened this summer in the Terrell Mill Village after operating at Christos Pizza since 1979, is opening on Sundays for the first time in 25 years.
"Many of you have asked, cried, pouted and protested...so we listened," the restaurant posted on its Facebook page this week.
Starting this Sunday, diners also can order from brunch menu between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
