Is Sandy Springs Becoming A Hot Area for New Restaurants??

Sandy Springs may never become a dining destination neighborhood like Inman Park or Decatur, but I can’t help but notice all the new restaurants opening in the area recently with more on the way.

In the past year, Sandy Springs has welcomed Double Zero Napoletana, Cibo e Beve, Peter Chang’s and Canton Cook II with additional restaurants such as Smashburger, Egg Harbor Cafe, Blue Moon Pizza and Hudson Grille opening soon. Some other notable restaurants opened in Sandy Springs in 2010 including {Three} Sheets, Tin Can Fish House & Oyster Bar and Breadwinner Cafe. Bishoku, one of the top sushi restaurants in Atlanta, opened in Sandy Springs at the end of 2009.

Why are so many restaurant owners choosing Sandy Springs? I would imagine that its proximity to one of America’s richest zip codes, 30327, doesn’t hurt. It’s also the second-largest city in Metro Atlanta, home to over 8,000 businesses, and the headquarters of more Fortune 500 companies than anywhere in the State including Atlanta.

It’s anyone’s guess if the restaurant scene in Sandy Springs will ever emerge as a destination dining city, but as a recent new home owner in Sandy Springs, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will.

Would any of you ITP’ers ever drive to Sandy Springs for dinner? Nevermind, I already know the answer to that. Part of Sandy Springs is actually inside the perimeter though, just saying.
