Opulent restaurant review, Roswell

The Roswell restaurant scene has generated much fodder for wine-cooler discussions of late. Budding restaurants, parking pickles, chef quandaries, puzzling restaurant revamps — you name it, Roswell has it.

One of the hot topics in historic Roswell right now is the disappearance of the beloved food truck-decorated, Latin-inspired Inc. Street Food. This Canton Street eatery run by Hicham Azhari and Fikret Kovac seemed alive and thriving from a casual observer’s perspective. The front and rear patios were packed, as are most of the local spots occupying such prime real estate, including Inc.’s sister restaurants Salt and Little Alley Steak.

Much as we Roswellians might lament it (and we will), Inc. has been laid to rest. Azhari and Kovac scrapped the original concept and reinvented the restaurant. Opulent now steps up to play host to the crowds that lumber in on summer evenings.

It is not the fact that one must now pay for the priviledge of reading your reviews. It is the fact that you state that it can be read by clicking here rather than if you are a subscriber and click here you may read the review. Bait and switch plain and simple but I guess you have heard that many times. I can’t help but think you dislike it as much as we do. It certainly isn’t something you do by choice but it truly succeeds in putting ya’ll on same level as used car salesmen.

I wrote to the new editor of AJC when he decided to increase the paper’s price 75% and told him it was a foolish move. Now we can watch them follow the NO Paper.

I wonder if the blogs over at are as dead as they’ve become here.

I think Opulent misses the mark in so many ways. Inc was one of the few reasonably-priced, good restaurants left on Canton. It seems that there is a move to the adults-only, nice-night-out pricing in family-heavy Roswell. Opulent’s menu is definitely not seafood-focused (like say the new Hugo’s out of the Canton corridor), but pricey food that one could find elsewhere better & cheaper. There is another not-so-great place on Canton St. that is also packed – it appears that magic is location, not quality at this point. I long for the days when more places will open downtown that my well-behaved kids are welcome & not priced out of a normal, family dinner. Inc was amazing & very missed.
