Bars in Peachtree Corners

We curated six great drinks from 4 local restaurants and pubs that include Firebird’s DBD and Noble Fin’s We Got the Beef.

The Violet “B”

The Violet “B”

PUB TEN
B as in Beauregarde, this refreshing drink is appropriately made with muddled blueberries and basil. St. Germaine and Hendrix gin pair beautifully with notes of acai and agave. Soda water tops off this cocktail for a bubbly sensation.

DBD

“DBD” Double Black Diamond Martini

Firebirds Wood Fired Grill
Although it’s named after expert-level ski trails, this cocktail is reminiscent of sandy beaches rather than snowy slopes. The Firebar’s signature drink, crafted from fresh vodka-soaked pineapple, makes for a delicious cocktail that goes down easy.

One Chill Mule

Firebirds Wood Fired Grill
Move over Moscow Mule, this new spin consists of pear elixir, lime juice, cranberry juice and Tito’s Vodka. Owen’s Ginger Beer gives it the classic Mule kick while the fruit medley keeps it sweet.

The Cure

TEN BISTRO
Goodness in a glass…you won’t feel guilty drinking this signature cocktail! It’s full of antioxidants from a combo of blueberries, cucumber, cranberry, and agave, with Absolut Mandarin vodka and St. Germaine.

We Got the Beef

We Got the Beef

Noble Fin
Not usually a bourbon drinker? This cocktail will convert you with one sip! A twist on your typical Manhattan, Luxardo cherry liqueur and 18.21’s tart cherry saffron bitters prove an excellent pairing. The bacon and cherry garnish give this cocktail a nice touch.

Angry Mary #2

NOBLE FIN
This gin-based drink is combined with local cocktail mixer 18.21’s Rosemary Sage. Pom juice adds a subtle tartness, while a splash of Italicus, known as the “drink of kings” in the mid-nineteenth century, lends a complementary floral taste.

Town Center’s Newest Eatery, Salata Salad Kitchen Celebrates with Ribbon Cutting

Published

Salata Salad

City leaders and local dignitaries joined Salata Salad Kitchen owners and staff recently to celebrate the opening of the city’s newest restaurant which is located at the Peachtree Corners Town Center.

The new eatery offers tossed-to-order salads and wraps, soups, organic teas and lemonade, breads and cookies. All fruits and vegetables are fresh and chopped daily in-house. Salad offerings include five salad bases, more than 50 toppings and 10 house-made, gluten-free dressings.  A variety of flavored iced teas are available at the “Tea Tap” along with other beverages.

Located at 5210 Town Center Boulevard, the Houston-based business was founded in 2005 and has over 65 franchise locations in the U.S. The company held a ribbon-cutting event on Wednesday, Feb. 6 for its Peachtree Corners location.

Mayor Mike Mason, Councilmembers Phil Sadd (Post 1), Lorri Christopher (Post 5) and Weare Gratwick (Post 6 and Mayor Pro Tem), along with members of the Southwest Gwinnett Chamber and Peachtree Corners Business Association were on hand for the grand opening.

“We are delighted to welcome Salata Salad Kitchen to our city,” said Councilmember Gratwick. “It is a great addition to our Town Center that, when complete, will feature a number of restaurants, retail shops and entertainment venues for our community to enjoy.”

The 3,000 square-foot restaurant seats 72 indoors and has an 800 square-foot outdoor patio that seats an additional 32. The Peachtree Corners location marks the seventh location in the Atlanta metro area and 83rd for the company.

The following day, Feb. 7, the company held a celebration that was open to the public and donated 25 percent of its opening day sales to the Robert D. Fowler Family YMCA.

A Hunger for Hospitality

Noble Fin with Cliff Bramble

An interview with Noble Fin owner Cliff Bramble.

Q: How long have you been in the restaurant business?
Cliff Bramble: I’ve been in this business for about 40 years. At first, I wasn’t sure that I wanted to stay in the restaurant business, because my first night I only made $5. But I learned to love it. It’s really exciting to me.


Q: What do you enjoy most about running a restaurant?
CB: What I like is that I can do a million different things, and I can watch people walk out happy. We’re in the immediate fix-it business. If something’s wrong, we should be able to fix it right away, especially if it’s a service or food related issue.


Q. How do you deal with family members and/or other partners in the business?
CB: If you’re dealing with partners or family who’s involved in the business, it’s important that everyone knows their responsibility and does it. It’s when people aren’t sticking to their jobs that the arguments start. My responsibility is not in the kitchen, and I don’t have much of a say there, though I may give my opinion.


Q. What advice do you have for new or potential restaurant owners?
CB: You have to pay attention to every little aspect, and labor is the first thing to pay attention to. It’s all about how you treat the employees, and how you pay them. There’s no question that talent is very tough to find, whether it’s for management, servers, kitchen staff or chefs. If you have someone who’s worked well for you a year or two, your goal is to keep them. If it’s an extra quarter an hour you have to give them, that quarter will save you thousands of dollars. ■
