The former Spaghetti Warehouse on Delk Road in Marietta will reopen soon as Cosmopolitan Restaurant. Spaghetti Warehouse, a regional chain with about 15 locations mainly on the east coast, closed in Marietta over a year ago, and up until recently, had remained vacant. The new American/Italian eatery plans to open in mid-late March and will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. The 13,000 square foot restaurant will apparently also have a full bakery, and will offer a variety of steak and seafood dishes for lunch and dinner.
I've only been by this restaurant space a few times, but according to local real estate sources, the area has deteriorated quite a bit over the last few years. To open what seems like such a gourmet eatery, in such a large space, with such a generic name, seems rather risky. Perhaps the owner went to school with the owner of Modern Restaurant in Buckhead and was taught, if you
build renovate it, they will come. In both cases, the name is weak and the spaces are too big.
I think the restaurant will have a tough time of it. What do you think? Will you be dining at Cosmopolitan Restaurant? Please share your thoughts below.
