Shopping and Dining
All you have to do is look around the intersection of Johnson Ferry Road and Roswell Road and you will have made it to the retail district of East Cobb-Marietta. The south side of the intersection you will find Old Navy, Kohl’s, PetsMart, a movie theater and more at the Merchants Walk Shopping Center. On the west side, a center shopping was recently erected around a new Target. On the east side of the intersection shop at Trader Joe’s, New Balance Store or grab a pizza at California Pizza Kitchen.
East Cobb has a gorgeous outdoor-air shopping mall called The Avenues of East Cobb. The Avenues features an array of restaurants, ice cream parlors, clothing stores, home decorating stores, music & movie stores–you name it, the Avenues have it! It is the perfect place to spend the weekend strolling around and looking in all the different stores. It is located just north of the Johnson Ferry Road and Roswell Road intersection on Roswell Road.
My favorite restaurant in East Cobb is Seed Kitchen & Bar, located at 1311 Johnson Ferry Road in the Merchants Walk shopping center. With its executive chef and Sommelier, Seed is a wonderful edition to East Cobb! A great place for Mexican and margaritas, Tijuana Joe’s Cantina is located at 690 Johnson Ferry Road. Bamboo China Bistro at 4400 Roswell Road and East Cobb Chin Chin at 617 Johnson Ferry Road are top spots for Chinese cuisine.
