One Atlanta restaurant is expanding with a second location in the Toco Hills shopping center, while another is relocating to the development.

Salaryman, which serves Japanese and Korean-inspired food and drinks, will open by early 2022. The Queso Shop, which specializes in tacos, quesadillas and other Mexican dishes, is set to open this fall.

Part of the Korean Wives Hospitality Group, which also owns Ramen Station in Grant Park, Noona in Duluth and Suzy Siu’s Baos in Krog Street Market, Salaryman opened in East Lake in 2019.

The Queso Shop, which debuted in Piedmont Heights earlier this year after operating as a food truck, comes from the team behind Korean taco spot Yumbii, which has locations in Buckhead and Toco Hills. The restaurant will close its Piedmont Heights location June 30 in advance of the relocation.

The new space will feature a self-serve ordering kiosk with a window for tacos plus a menu including queso, quesadillas, rotisserie chicken and churros.

The Toco Hills location will be open from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. daily.

Both restaurants will join six other retail concepts slated to open in the shopping center in the coming months.

Located at the intersection of North Druid Hills and LaVista Roads, Toco Hills -- owned and operated by real estate developer Edens -- has undergone a major overhaul over the past few years.

Several longtime tenants -- including Bagel Palace, Petite Auberge and Famous Pub -- closed their doors, making way for new spots like Spiller Park Coffee and Iron Age Korean Steakhouse.

Other Toco Hills food and beverage concepts include Goldberg’s Bagels, Masti - Indian Street Eats, La Parrilla Mexican Restaurant, Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe and Top Spice Thai and Malaysian.

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the Queso Shop would be adding a second location rather than relocating.
