A quiet buzz has been building on social media around the new restaurant taking over the space that Relish and then Pico once occupied at the Roswell Square. It's pretty safe to assume that as its opening nears, The Mill Kitchen & Bar's buzz will likely become a roar.
The menu will feature Southern American comfort food with a contemporary twist, seasonally inspired and locally sourced. On the website, the restaurant is described with the following statement:
In the South, we are kept up at night remembering our grandmother’s fried chicken, our mother’s biscuits and gravy, the taste of a peach fresh off the tree in July and the smell of boiled peanuts as we pass by a roadside stand after a day of fishing with our grandfather. We crave and dream about our food, attaching it to memories of childhood, friends and family. We are taught a great meal is not about the food and drink we consume, it is an emotional experience bonding us to it forever.
The Mill Southern Kitchen and Bar, the quintessential Southern neighborhood restaurant, is a down-to-earth spot, where the casual vibe is heightened by the mouth-watering cuisine, the culinary inspired cocktails, the large selection of craft beers and the thoughtfully selected wine list. Whether a guest prefers the well-appointed dining room, the comfortable bar or the sizeable patio complete with a fireplace, it will be a gathering spot for those who want to conjure up their favorite memories and provide a place to make new ones.
The restaurant conducted interviews with potential staffers this past week and will begin training on Monday, according to their craigslist.com ad. They are set to officially open in late February or early March, according to the Roswell Business Alliance.
