NEW YORK CITY— San Antonio chef Jesse Perez, of the still-buzzing Arcade Midtown Kitchen, is almost ready to reveal his New York City expansion: Eater NY reports Perez's fast-casual "modern Mexican" concept Oxido will debut March 3 across the street from Eataly. Perez teamed with Pinkberry expansion guru Dai Hwan Choi to bring the restaurant to NYC, and its menu is Chipotle-esque: Diners can select their choice of protein and fillings and place them in burrito, bowl, or taco form. Unlike Chipotle, Perez's menu is stocked with options like New Mexican beef curry and red chile mushrooms. More information and menu here. [ENY]

ATLANTA— The event's not 'til May, but tickets for the 2015 Atlanta Food & Wine Festival went on sale today: This year, the festival will take over Midtown Atlanta from May 28 to 30, promising classes, dinner series, and tastings. Chefs Linton Hopkins, Vivian Howard, John Currence, Ford Fry, and Tory McPhail are among those who will be on-hand; more information and tickets available here. [EATL]

MARYLAND— Acclaimed chef Peter Chang's much-anticipated new restaurant will not open in the winter, as originally promised: Eater DC reports Chang's Rockville, Maryland restaurant is now slated for a Mid-April opening. [EDC]
