Roswell restaurateurs Hicham Azhari and Fikret Kovac of F&H Food Trading Group are once again teaming up with corporate executive chef Bob McDonough for their fourth venture together - this time in Alpharetta.
The Salt Factory Pub, a Roswell institution, will open a second location at the former KFC location in historic downtown Alpharetta, next to Taco Bell on Main Street, during late February 2013.
F&H Food Trading Group’s collection of restaurants currently reside on Canton Street in historic Downtown Roswell, Ga., and include Latin American-inspired INC. Street Food, New York butcher-influenced Little Alley Steak and the original Salt Factory Pub. A rapidly growing Atlanta suburb, Alpharetta is fast becoming a hub for retail, restaurants and office space.
Salt’s menu is locally sourced and emphasizes fresh, regional flavors with an international influence. Signature menu favorites include McDonough’s Prince Edward Island steamed mussels, cornmeal dusted calamari, 7-onion soup and Springer Mountain chicken double pot pie. Additional entrees include housemade pizzas and burgers with prime beef sourced from notable Chicago butcher Meats by Linz. The pub will boast an extensive selection of twenty-four draft beers as well as a varied scotch and bourbon collection.
With a large patio featuring a bocce ball court and outdoor seating, Alpharetta’s Salt Factory will also offer a detailed, dark wooded interior with plush leather banquettes and chairs. Warm woods contrast English countryside pub-inspired lights while large, framed mirrors line the walls.
Salt will be located at 102 South Main Street, Alpharetta, Ga., 30009 and will serve lunch and dinner daily. The restaurant will feature 90 seats spanned over 2,800 square feet and will offer al fresco dining.
