It’s Mural Monday!
Featuring: Sizzling Spices Mural
location: 317 Spring St SE, Gainesville, GA 30501

We’re thrilled to showcase the vibrant new mural painted by Fox Gradin, a talented local artist and owner of Celestial Studios. This eye-catching artwork is in front of the new restaurant, Sizzling Spices.

When Mabrur decided to open in the old building of the beloved Two Dog restaurant, he knew he wanted to weave the community into his new venture. What better way than through a mural?

The mural features a beautiful elephant, symbolizing Indian cuisine and the cherished mascot of Gainesville High School. The colorful splatters represent the Holi festival in India, bringing a spirit of unity and excitement. Holi is a celebration that brings people of all backgrounds together, a time for reflection and looking forward to the future with hope and joy.

Come by, admire this mural, along with a new in-progress mural inside, and enjoy a delicious meal at Sizzling Spices, now open for both lunch and dinner!
