Crawdaddy’s opts out of weekday lunch service for medical reasons: Crawdaddy’s Cajun and Creole will be nights and weekend brunch only starting today. Chef Joan Brady, who’s crafted some of the more progressive meals on Broad Street since she and husband Dereck expanded from their popular food truck, cites her recent diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Writes Brady in a note to the restaurant’s Facebook followers:
“Hi, fans! I have been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. It’s been a real struggle and continues to be. I have to scale back the hours I am currently working.”
Crawdaddy’s, at 239 Broad St., moves to this schedule — again, starting today:
Tuesday-Thursday, 4-9 p.m.
Friday, 4-10 a.m. with the bar open late.
Saturday: Brunch from 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m. and dinner from 4-10 p.m. with the bar open late.
Sunday: Brunch from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.
Adds Brady: “Opening earlier means more happy hour! “
Knucklehead Cafe closes in Rockmart: “We have closed” are the only words now on the web home of Knucklehead Cafe, a downtown Rockmart restaurant with a regional fan base.
The restaurant, at 217 W. Elm St., had a 3.5-star average rating from 30 reviews on Yelp. It drew fans for its food, especially burgers, but also for its overall ambiance — especially for motorcycle enthusiasts.
Thirteen months ago, Knucklehead was the cornerstone of a glowing review in the Rome News about ACH Enterprises, one of multiple holdings by Andrew Heaner that also included an incredible catering venture, Running Wild. Even that website now has the same words, “We have closed.”
Even the Facebook pages for both are gone. Word spread quickly throughout the restaurant community. Jefferson’s of Rockmart posted a note late Monday stating as follows:
“We hate to hear that a local restaurant closed. If you were employed there, we do have several open positions at our Rockmart, Cedartown and Villa Rica locations. If you are interested, please send the page a message for an interview time. If you can tag any of the cooks,servers and managers, we will hire what we can and will try to start them out as close as we can to what they were making there. Thank You.”
