A few weeks back, I meet up with Madame Flipper (remember – all my friends have aliases) for a little grubbing at La Fourchette, that Buckhead offspring of the now defunct JOEL Brasserie. During the course of our conversation with the various employees, a few of them mentioned that the restaurant was expanding … sort of. Word from them is that Tartufo Pizzeria will go in next door to the mothership’s location. The name, in case you are wondering, derives from the Italian word for truffles (mmmm … truffled pizza!!!). And while you may be scratching your head as to why (and how) a French restaurant is going to open a pizza joint … don’t be too surprised. La Fourchette has been known to put out some flatbread from time to time. That’s all she wrote folks! I don’t have too much more information than that and nothing official has been put out … so time will tell if this actually comes to fruition.
