No, you’re not reading the same article twice! It is official–Downtown Canton has announced another new restaurant called Local on North.
Husband and wife Salem Makhlouf and Georganne Rose, who own the Real Fix Pizza in Roswell selected Canton for their latest business venture because of it’s small-town feel and the niceness of the people. The pair are hoping that Canton residents make “Local on North” one of their regular dining choices.
Local on North will be built in an existing, historic brick building that was once the flower shop at 170 North Street. The new, 78 table restaurant should seat about 135 people and offer an outdoor seating area as well. They plan to offer about 5 different pizza choices, as well as burgers and steaks. Prices for dinner will range from $15-$35. They will be offering a lunch menu as well to draw in folks who are working in the downtown area, with plates ranging from $8-$14. A “well known”, but unnamed, chef is in the works as well, and they are promising something for everyone on their menu.
Live music will be on the schedule for weekend nights, and they plan to have about 6 different beers on tap, hoping to incorporate some of the smaller, locally brewed beers.
The building did need some work, including plumbing and electric, but depending on construction they could open as early as January. This announcement, along with yesterday’s news of Queenie’s opening early next year, will definitely draw more people into the downtown area. We look forward to trying these new restaurants and welcoming them to the community.
