Opulent—the downtown Roswell restaurant by F&H Food Trading Group founders Hicham Azhari and Fikret Kovac—has a new name and a new menu to go with it. Now called 1920 Tavern, the restaurant has been tweaked to focus on approachability. Changes include adding more sandwiches to the food offerings, more bourbons to the bar, and more color to the dining room.
Real Fix Pizzeria, a new concept by the guys behind Opulent, Little Alley Steak, and Salt Factory Pub, is set to open in downtown Roswell later this spring. Restaurateurs Hicham Azhari and Fikret Kovac and culinary director Bob McDonough named the casual spot Fix, as in “getting your pizza fix.” Fix is also Kovac’s nickname. Designed to be family-friendly, Real Fix Pizzeria will serve New York-style, Neapolitan, and fried pizza for lunch and dinner seven days a week.
For a few years there, it seemed that bourbon was the dominant spirit in Atlanta, a natural result of local (and national) restaurants embracing Southern foods and cooking techniques. One obvious outcome of the trend was Southern Art and Bourbon Bar, which opened in 2011: It occupies a space in the InterContinental Buckhead that was previously a French restaurant and accompanying cognac bar. Bourbon Bar offers more than seventy varieties of our region's whiskey, specializing in flights but also offers cocktails like Run for the Black Roses, made with Woodford Reserve, blackberry shrub, mint, soda, and rose water.
