After being open less than a year, Linton’s in the Garden, Linton Hopkins’ restaurant in the Atlanta Botanical Garden, will be renamed Longleaf. The new name is a reference to the longleaf pine, an evergreen indigenous to the Southeast. Hopkins says the rebranding will cut out the middleman between the Garden and diners. Hopkins will stay on as a chef adviser while Jason Paolini steps into the executive chef role and become an employee of the Garden.

Westside grilled cheese resto Tom + Chee has closed after a little over year of operation at Ironworks. Tomorrow’sNewsToday reports that a “lunch focused” eatery as has leased the space.
