Korean taco spot Yumbii to open in Toco Hills and other dining news from the week

These are the stories that created a buzz on the metro Atlanta dining scene this week:

•Korean taco eatery Yumbii, which opened its first brick-and-mortar in south Buckhead in December 2016, is slated to open a second location in the Toco Hills shopping development in a space previously occupied by a Radio Shack, Tomorrow’s News Today reports. 

Yumbii, which owner Carson Young started as food truck in 2010, serves tacos, quesadillas, burritos and rice bowls, with a blend of Asian and Mexican flavors.

It will join several other concepts newer to Toco Hills including Spiller Park Coffee, Chopt, The Local Pizzaiolo and Pao Pao Ramen and Rolled Ice Cream. Burger chain BurgerIM is also bound for the development. 

The AJC has reached out for more details. 

•The Red Snapper, which has been located at 2100 Cheshire Bridge Road NE for more than 30 years, has been sold to Randy Mercer. Steve Josovitz of The Shumacher Group, Inc. brokered the deal. The restaurant, which hass a seafood-focused menu, was previously owned by chefs Jimmy & Somporn Veeranarong.
