The new eatery located in the East Cobb Crossing Shopping Center also has had its first food inspection.
On Monday we told you about what's leaving the East Cobb Crossing Shopping Center -- the Michaels store that's moving to the old Borders space -- and we neglected to tell you what's new at retail center at Roswell and Johnson Ferry. Crepe Cafe has opened and even has gotten a food inspection from Cobb and Douglas Public Health -- a near-perfect score of 99 in mid-January. It's so new, in fact, there aren't hours posted on the front, so we're asking if any of you who have eaten there what's on the menu, and how you like the place. Tell us what you think in the comments, and if you have restaurant news to share, please e-mail email@example.com: openings, closings, moves, new menu items and featured promotions, etc. The East Cobb dining…

The breakfast and lunch spot is located in the Sandy Plains Centre Shopping Center.
East Cobb breakfast diners have a new haunt to try out.

A family-style Italian restaurant will open on Monday at Paper Mill Village.
East Cobb has lost one Italian restaurant and gained another, all in the same space. The spot formerly occupied by Caffe Fortunato at Paper Mill Village will reopen as Valenti's Family Dining on Monday, according to a message posted on the retail center's Facebook page. As the name indicates, Valenti's will specialize in family-style meals served on large platters, according to a Paper Mill Village publicist, who said that the new restaurant is locally-owned. She did not know when Caffe Fortunato closed, but said "it's been very recent." The restaurant space is located near Paper Mill Grill in the heart of a commercial center at Johnson Ferry Road and Paper Mill Road. In late 2010, Smyrna pizzeria owner Michael Fortunato opened Caffe …
The last day of business for the Windy Hill Road restaurant is Jan. 31.
The lower Powers Ferry Road corridor in East Cobb has been a troublesome place for restaurants in recent years. And now another vacancy is about to occur. According to the Atlanta restaurant, real estate and retail blog What Now, the Houston's location at Powers Ferry Road and Windy Hill Road will be closing on Jan. 31. The "upscale American casual" chain, which has three remaining locations in Atlanta, also features valet parking and does a good lunch business serving neighboring commercial and office parks, including Wildwood. No reason was given for the closing, according to the What Now post, but other nearby restaurant space has emptied out due in part to the recession. Houston's is part of a string of restaurants on the eastern side …

Stem will be located next to Doug Turbush's restaurant at Merchant's Walk.
Sunday, January 13
The restaurant owner who wanted to give East Cobb a unique dining experience is expanding his vision. Doug Turbush announced this week that in April he will be opening Stem, a 39-seat wine and cocktail bar, next to his acclaimed Seed Kitchen and Bar in the Merchant's Walk Shopping Center. According to an item in the AJC's Food and More blog, the idea for Stem grew -- no pun intended -- shortly after Torbush opened Seed in late 2010. The wine bar will serve around 40 different wines priced between $7-$22, as well as small plates of food as accompaniments. In recent weeks, Seed has revised its Sunday brunch menu.
