Seed Kitchen & Bar celebrates its first anniversary with a prix-fixe dinner for $29 (not including tax and gratuity) for which chef/owner Doug Turbush will reprise some of the favorite dishes from opening night as well as offer new dishes among the choices. Part of the proceeds from this menu will go to two of his favorite charities: Share Our Strength and MUST Ministries. The menu will be offered November 1-3, 2012, only. Seed Kitchen & Bar, Merchants Walk, 1311 Johnson Ferry Rd., Ste. 504, Marietta, GA 30068, 678-214-6888.
After ten years in a simple, out-of-the-way location abutting a dry cleaner, Jean-Claude Changivy has moved Au Rendez-Vous to Chamblee. Citing the loss of his lease, Changivy relocated to a spot near the Chamblee Public Library. The greater visibility should enhance the restaurant's staying power, and Changivy's French food will continue to attract dévotées who were disappointed to think that it had closed. A major change that will distress some, though, is it's no more BYO, as he has developed a wine list. Lunch Tues.-Sun., Dinner nightly. Au Rendez-Vous, 4102 Clairmont Rd., Chamblee, GA 30341, 404-303-1968.
Lure now offers lunch service seven days a week from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. The menu features appetizers, soups and salads, and sandwiches and entrées.

Brunch offerings will be added to the weekend lunch menu beginning in November. In addition, Lure offers an "It's Early" menu that's ideal for grabbing a bite during the late afternoon hours. The special selection is available from 4 p.m.-5 p.m. daily and includes pre-dinner dishes like cold-water oysters ($2.50 to $3 each), a spicy Veracruz-style seafood cocktail ($12), steak tartare ($12) and fried oyster sliders ($4.50 each).
