5Church’s third location will go in Midtown Atlanta, say its owners, at 1197 Peachtree Street NE. It’ll offer lunch and dinner daily and weekend brunch, and plans call for a 2016 opening.

Chef-owner Josh McCracken plans a grand opening Aug. 5 for BLOCK Bistro, at 13812 Cinnabar Place in Huntersville (it’s under Harvey’s Bar & Grill). McCracken calls the lineup New American “with a Charleston twist,” and will serve lunch and dinner Tuesday-Friday and brunch Friday-Sunday. Signatures include stuffed French toast, crab cake Benedict, chicken and waffles, sriracha deviled eggs, Charleston shrimp and grits, and more. facebook.com/blockbistro; 704-947-5109.
