Tupelo Honey Cafe will open the doors on its first Triangle restaurant on Dec. 1, the restaurant announced via its website. The Raleigh location will be inside the new 401 Oberlin apartment building across the street from Benelux Coffee and the Cameron Village shopping area.

Knightdale is getting a Little Caesar's Pizza off of U.S. 64. It will be located next to Krispy Kreme. 

Tropical Picken Chicken announced via Facebook that it will be adding a new store devoted to empanadas. No location has been announced yet, but the name will be El Guapo Empanadas Y Mas. And they are asking for some help choosing a logo. The one I included with this story is just one of four being considered. Head to the Tropical Picken Chicken Facebook page to weigh in. 

Locked and Loaded Bar & Grill in Garner has not opened yet in its new location - just a mile down the road at 305 McCormick St. The restaurant closed last weekend in its former location on Highway 70.

Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers has opened a second Triangle location. The franchise opened in the Searstone Retail Village at 1705 High House Road in Cary this week, Triangle Food Guy reports. Freddy's first Triangle location is in Durham.

The Mill, a craft beer, wine and espresso bar, is planning to open next week in downtown Fuquay-Varina, Triangle Food Guy reports.

    $13 for a veggie bowl? It better have 9 varieties of heirloom tomatoes or we are receiving yet another Cameron Village "separate the rich and stupid from their money for no apparent value or reason" scam. I am told their servings are large and will cover 2 meals when we take it all home...better hope so 'cause CV shops which offend the college crowd are mere footnotes in the Village's long history of failed eateries - I can name 40 or more with overpriced, greedy menus who were all hype claiming to be southern, healthy, innovative, scratch-made, home cooking, fresh, etc.
