Chef Jay Swift chooses Gwinnett County for his new restaurant
Chef Jay Swift has opened Noble Fin, his Coastal American seafood and steak restaurant. The brand new restaurant, built from the ground up, has 5200 square feet, four options for private dining, a full bar with cocktail tables and an outdoor patio. Noble Fin will serve only dinner at first, but will also serve lunch within two weeks of opening. The menu, created by Chef de Cuisine Jeb Aldrich, features sections on the menu called Ice Cold, Small Plates, Fresh Market Fish, Steaks, Chops & Poultry as well as Sides. There are six craft cocktails, as well as a wine list of ninety wines. The new restaurant is located at 5260 Peachtree Parkway, Peachtree Corners, GA 30092.
With a focus on seafood and steaks, Noble Fin has an in-town vibe with tall ceilings, a full bar with built-in televisions, tall cocktail tables, an open kitchen, private and semi-private dining rooms and a full wine wall with a rolling steel ladder. The atmosphere is comfortable with weathered hardwood flooring, large hanging pendants, a mix of booths separated by steel and frosted glass, banquettes and tables, and a full open kitchen that is fronted by a skinned canoe. The restaurant has sixteen tables for parties of eight or less.
The new locally owned, freestanding restaurant is situated adjacent to the Peachtree Corners Forum in the ever-growing Gwinnett County. It is surrounded by the cities of Duluth, John's Creek, Alpharetta, Roswell, Berkeley Lake, and Norcross. Jay Swift says, "I'm excited to be a part of the new development in Peachtree Corners and assist in the city's upcoming growth. We have hired many local residents and look forward to meeting many of the people in the area. Every person that I have met in the area has been more than receptive and I already feel like I know the people."
Multiple Recalls Nationwide for Listeria Concerns in Frozen Fruits and Vegetables, Sunflower Seeds and More
Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary W. Black is alerting Georgians to several recent recalls that include a wide range of products that were distributed and sold in Georgia. The products are being recalled over concerns of Listeria monocytogenes contamination, which poses health risks to consumers if eaten. “Recalls are one of the food safety control measures in place to prevent illnesses when a potential problem is identified,” Commissioner Black said. “Many of these recalls are tied together by common ingredients. The multitude of related recalls is a testament to the supply chain working together to identify products that need to be removed from the marketplace.” While retailers are actively pulling recalled products from store shelves so they are not available for purchase, Georgia Department of Agriculture (GDA) food safety inspectors routinely check retail shelves and distribution warehouses to make sure recalled products have been removed from sale. Recent recalls impacting Georgia due to Listeria monocytogenes contamination are listed below; please visit the U.S. Food and Drug Administration website for additional, complete information about each recalled product.
