East Atlanta is losing one Mexican restaurant, but is set to gain another

A Mexican restaurant that has called East Atlanta home since 2011 is closing next month, with another spot offering similar cuisine set to take its spot.

Tomatillos announced on its Facebook page that it will close at 1242 Glenwood Ave. SE March 11:

The restaurant, owned by Margaret Kaiser ( a former state representative and mayoral candidate ), serves a menu of burritos, soft tacos and quesadillas as well as other Mexican food staples in a former Wachovia bank building. Kaiser and her husband are also co-owners of Grant Central Pizza locations in Grant Park and East Atlanta.

Corrina Martinez, owner of Blu Cantina in Castleberry Hill -- which closed in 2017 after its roof collapsed -- will open a restaurant in the space, according to the Tomatillos Facebook post.
