New/Closed Restaurants – November 2010

Every Friday, Roots in Alpharetta features an article on food and dining in a series I like to call Foodie Friday.

TRE Vietnamese Dining – Alpharetta

A very welcomed addition to Alpharetta’s restaurant scene. Johns Creek and Duluth have their share of Vietnamese joints, but not so much here. This place is set to open sometime in November. They are on North Point near the corner of Webb Bridge, next to Zaxby’s. Great spot to pick up Windward cubicle critters as well as some from Old Milton. I don’t know much about this cuisine, but I’ll try to visit and muddle through a review before too long.

Bagel Boys – Kimball Bridge

A few weeks ago I got a terrific email from Dan, one of the owners of this bagel shop. My wife is a frequent visitor of their original store on Haynes Bridge and Old Milton. They have opened a second location on Kimball Bridge near Webb Bridge, right next to the hoity toity Muse salon. Expect the same bagels and terrific sandwiches as the original store, but they also have an expanded coffee offering.

Shrimp Basket – Milton

Okay, sure, I’ve already reviewed this place. Felt like I should put it here for good measure. I went for a second time yesterday. Was very tempted to try more off their cajun menu. Yesterday’s special was etouffee. It was hard to resist, but I wanted to try the fried shrimp. You can’t go wrong with anything they batter and fry here. The cajun stuff leaves a lot to be desired.

Rosa Pizza – Johns Creek

Opened up where Ray’s used to be on Jones Bridge. Looks like this is the third location in metro Atlanta. The AJC did a small writeup on these guys. I probably won’t be in a hurry to try them.

Mangia Pizza – McGinnis Ferry

This is the old Allesio’s Pizza. I’m not sure when they changed their name, it may have been months ago. I know next to nothing about these guys other than what their website shows. I used to be a fan of Allesio’s year ago when they first opened. Soon after they changed ownership and the pizza went downhill fast. I haven’t been back in years. Maybe this new joint is worth a shot. They are next to Never Enough Thyme, which means there is often never enough parking.

    I really like Rosa Pizza. Their location near Georgia State’s campus downtown is one of the most regarded pizza joints in the city.
