Former Sangria's owner Jerry Herrera thinks he might be able to open his new seafood restaurant by the second week in January - if he can get hold of the last few permits he needs from DeKalb County. 

"It normally takes about six months to get them all, and it's only been about four," he said, patiently. 

While he waits for the notoriously slow county system to do its work, Herrera has been testing various menu items on random visitors. "The shrimp and grits is very popular so far," he told Patch. He has also been working on a chowder and some broiled fish, among other dishes.  

The place certainly appears to be ready. "We're going for the Florida look," he said, looking around his freshly painted premises. He wants to do a soft opening at first, and then have a big opening party... "Or maybe two!"
