Okay, I swear to god people – I have no idea why all these burger joints are popping up on the scene. And guess what? We have another one to add to the mix. From what I have heard (though not from what I see), the opening of Fuze Burgers in Midtown Atlanta is imminent.
Located at 265 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Fuze is going in at the location previously occupied by Thai Palate. Owner Eddie Hugh was the purveyor of Thai Palate, so it’s no surprise to see him still involved. However, the transition from a mediocre (at best) Thai restaurant into a successful burger bar seems like a roll of the dice. Still, we’ll wait and see what happens.
Besides Hugh, Jazmin Ho serves as the bar manager and Jack Kim is the GM. The restaurant already has a facebook page, though not much is there. One part restaurant, one part sports bar, the interior is being completely revamped to handle a full bar and 10 HD TVs. The space is scheduled to hold 65 patrons in the general dining area with an additional 12 at the bar.
It seems as if they were shooting for an opening sometime this week; however, I can’t tell if that’s likely. Training was supposed to start last week yet they still have the windows papered up. Will let ya’ll know when they finally open.
