You’ve see all the photos from the site of the former Chick-fil-A Dwarf House on Shorter Avenue in recent months, from the demolition to seeing all the key pieces coming together for what will become Truett’s Chick-fil-A on the same site. But here’s something different: A look at what to expect when the project is done in late fall. The restaurant continues to serve customers at the Riverside Parkway location as well as Mount Berry Mall.

Background: What you’ll find at Truett’s later this fall:

  • The new restaurant will feature Chick-fil-A’s vintage heritage interior design, a dining room with seating for 150 inside as well as additional patio seating and kitchen capacity nearly double that of the original.
  • Dual drive-through ordering lanes merging into a single payment and pickup lane.
  • The interior features premium finishes including subway tile and large windows as well as a large gathering table made from reclaimed wood, and a custom light fixture made from recycled Coca-Cola bottles.
  • The “little red door” which served as an entrance to the Rome Dwarf House has been incorporated into the new restaurant’s entry.

Rome’s Alcohol Control Commission meets Monday at 5 p.m. with two restaurants on the agenda:

  • Issue a New Beer Pouring License at Don Neo’s Tacos & Elotes, 330 Broad St., to Nelson Yanes. Don Neo’s, known for its popular food truck, hopes to open later this month in the former home of The Partridge and briefly Jerusalem Express. Don Neo’s got a 100 on the initial food inspection on Thursday. Results
  • Issue a New Beer Pouring License at Lord of the Wings LLC, doing business as Scores Bar & Grill, 1850 Redmond Circle, Ste. 3000, to Nicholas Hight.
