New North Fulton Restaurants

999064_609335642439442_1253435502_nThis scoop is from a year ago and the restaurants are open already and thriving!

We heard through the grapevine that The Big Ketch Saltwater Grill, a seafood restaurant with a popular Buckhead location, is coming to Roswell! Check out the restaurant’s Facebook page for the latest news.

The restaurant will sit between Osteria Mattone and the historic event venue Naylor Hall. Downtown Roswell needs a good seafood niche, so this is a win-win concept.

Scoop hasn’t been to the ITP location, but as a Florida girl I love trying new seafood places and can’t wait for them to open next spring. The most interesting thing I found out about this restaurant’s concept is that it’s by Southern Proper Hospitality, the group behind Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails, Tin Lizzy’s Cantina and Smokebelly BBQ. (By the way, Tin Lizzy’s opens Aug. 25 in Kennesaw.)

In addition, South Main Kitchen will open in Downtown Alpharetta soon. Their Facebook page has some images of the restaurant.

Street Food, and Salt Factory, will soon have his own restaurant. Louis Soon, who worked his way up from waiter and bartender to manager and now owner, is opening a seasonally driven, farm-to-table restaurant called South Main Kitchen this summer. Located at 9 South Main Street, across from City Hall, South Main Kitchen will serve American cuisine in a century-old industrial-style building.

Located at 45 Roswell Street, this restaurant theme will offer both tapas and a full menu. Opening September 2014, the decor has 130-year-old cotton mill wood beams and mounted antlers on wood. We are excited for this next venture by the Sedgwick Group to open.

All of these great restaurant ventures makes OTP the place for fork & spoon destination!
