What’s New on the Marietta Square?

Update June 2016: Spring Restaurant Opened & we have a full review of Market with a B. 

New and exciting places are coming to the iconic Marietta Square. In the works now are two new restaurants plus a soda pop and candy store, and a specialty boutique recently opened, too!

Offering seasonal American cuisine, Spring Restaurant will be opening in April in the former Le Cafe Crepe restaurant at 90 Marietta Station Walk. According to Atlanta Magazine, Brian So, a Kennesaw native and former Sobban chef, is returning to his roots and opening the farm-to-table restaurant. Named after his favorite season, Spring will offer a menu that changes based on the availability of local ingredients that is dictated by seasonality and sustainability. He believes in cooking simple, delicious food with the best possible ingredients and we look forward to trying it!

Two Birds Tap House Scoop OTPTwo Birds Taphouse, a bar + a kitchen will be opening this summer at 52 Powder Springs Street SE. As they work to renovate the 19th Century trusses, they noted this on their Facebook page:

A lot has passed through this door. Bales of cotton, rolls of carpet, bushels of peaches… and coming this summer, cold kegs of local craft beer!

According to the Marietta Daily Journal, Two Birds Taphouse, which will predominately function as a bar, will also sell appetizers and small sharable plates. Two Birds is expected to be 2,200 square feet and open only a short distance from the Mexican cantina that is slated to open soon as well by owners of the Marietta Pizza Company.

Mariettans Rachel and Jeff Byrd who own the property and business along with their son, Dan Byrd and his fiancée Lauren Smith, said they are excited to open this gastropub and be a part of the community. Follow them on Facebook for the latest updates.

CandyMarietta Food Tours shared their excitement about the growth on the square, and let us in on the Scoop. Rocket Fizz, a soda pop and candy shop, will open at 128 South Park Square, where Pendelton was located. No doubt this popular chain will have a big tween and teen following!

In addition, they told us about Market with a B, a gourmet market, home and gift shop at 113 Church Street that recently opened. Owner and Food Network Cupcake War Winner Patricia Katopes  brings an upscale farmhouse boutique that carries her famous “Patty Cake” cupcakes as well as great gifts. I love giving candles as gifts, especially when they represent OTP — and even better with Ella B candles named the Big Chicken and Kennesaw Mountain!
