FirstWatch is Opening October 1!

FirstWatch is a breakfast/brunch restaurant that is building out the "other side of Marlows".

Before building out, they had to remove that giant tree that fell on it during the storm last June.

I hate it when that happens.

(from the DunwoodyTalk blog)

Here is the FirstWatch location today:

Today, September 30, was their "soft opening" along with the official Chamber ribbon cutting.  A soft opening is like a dress rehearsal - a last chance to make sure the systems are working and processes are all in place for a small audience before the doors are thrown open wide to the general public.

City Council and the Chamber were on hand for the ribbon cutting.

The happy group shot with the FirstWatch CEO and everyone without a camera.  :-)

The Chamber of Commerce staff got business out of the way.  Now it's time for brunch!

Here's what the restaurant looks like, from the far end inside.

Right behind where I'm standing is a set of French doors leading out to a spotless dining patio, complete with working fireplace.  That's going to be a fun place to get an early cup o' joe with breakfast on a brisk fall morning.

The butternut squash soup, pumpkin pancakes and quinoa/chicken bowl (I got that last name wrong but you'll know it when you see it on the menu) got rave reviews.  

More happy customers

Stop in first thing on October 1!  The entire staff is ready to rock.

There is a kid-friendly menu and they are very clear about various allergens in their dishes.
Congrats on your new location, gang!
