Lapeer Seafood Market hopes to open in March at Alpharetta City Center; a mixed-use complex incorporating much of the northern Atlanta suburb’s downtown area. The seafood restaurant and mezcal bar is co-owned by Louis Soon, who also owns two other Alpharetta restaurants: South Main Kitchen and Butcher & Brew.

Chef Blake Hartley plans to change the menu daily, which includes fresh-made pastas and highlights in-season, line-caught fish, East Coast and Gulf oysters, Alabama crab, and tuna from Louisiana. The bar features over 100 mezcals, available for making cocktails or in one- or two-ounce pours.

The design of the 3,000-square-foot restaurant is accented with white and green tiles and white walls throughout the space, accommodating between 125 to 140 people in the dining room, at its raw bar, and bar. There’s also a greenhouse-inspired, all-weather patio.

In the beginning, Lapeer will only be open for dinner. The restaurant hopes to add lunch and a weekend brunch within a few weeks after opening.

Eater Atlanta has reached out for further details on the mezcal bar at Lapeer.

Neighbors at City Center include Restaurant Holmes, Chiringa, and Vitality Bowls. Jinya Ramen Bar, Central City Tavern, and a second location of Botiwalla from Chai Pani chef Meherwan Irani will also open at the complex.
