Cherry Street Brewpub and a handful of other restaurants swing open for business on Wednesday, September 18, at the massive 135-acre Halcyon development in southern Forsyth County off of Turner McDonald Parkway.
In addition to the Cumming, Georgia-based Cherry Street Brewpub and its beer garden, CT Cantina Taqueria, cake shop and bakery It’s a Sweet Life, Popbar popsicle shop, and chocolatier Kilwins also plan to open that Wednesday.
Kilwins is one of six stalls located inside Halcyon’s food hall, located off a portion of the development’s 50-acre green space. It will eventually be joined by Gu’s Dumplings, Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee, Pita Mediterranean Street Food, poke stall Sweet Tuna, and Tocayo, serving “Mexican street food.”
Halcyon will include 14 restaurants and foods stalls once fully open. Other full-service restaurants opening later this year are a second location of Alpharetta’s Butcher and Brew, dine-in movie theater Cinebistro, brunch spot Never Enough Thyme, and Ocean and Acre, serving surf and turf.
With its 690 apartments, town homes, and single family houses, two hotels, restaurants and food hall, and green space, Halcyon is one of a number of planned communities being reproduced throughout metro Atlanta. Avalon Alpharetta, the Battery Atlanta at SunTrust Park, and Pinewood Forest in Fayette County, along with in-town developments like the Works and its dining hall Chattahooche Food Works in Underwood Hills and the multi-million dollar redo of Colony Square in Midtown, all follow similar blueprints.
