Glynda Tarpley, co-owner of EJ's Eats and Drinks at 523 Center Street, said that a second location of the restaurant will be coming to a space at 3604 Kavanaugh Blvd. this spring, hopefully in May or June. It's actually a return for the restaurant, which opened in Hillcrest in 2002 before moving downtown.

Tarpley said that she and her co-owner are in the process of securing the liquor license, with plans calling for a full bar pending the paperwork going through. Once the license is in place, Tarpley said, they'll completely remodel the space, which is near Hocott's Garden Center on Kavanaugh, just before the hill heading into the Heights neighborhood.

EJ's downtown is popular lunch spot, with over 25 sandwich varieties, plus wraps, salads, soups, appetizers and big burgers. You can check out the menu here. Tarpley said that the new Hillcrest EJ's will have slightly longer hours than the original, but the food and service will be familiar to anyone who has tried the downtown shop. "The menu's going to be basically the same," she said. "We may expand it a little, but not much. We're trying to make it family friendly, and we'll have delivery and take out. It's for people who don't want fast food, but served food at a moderate price."

Tarpley said that permits for the liquor and parking for the new space should be sorted by March, followed by a few months of remodeling.
