Sun Dried Restaurant & Lounge opened for dinner on Tuesday and will be open for lunch and dinner today.
Located on Sandy Plains Road in East Cobb, the restaurant’s mission is to serve “World Cuisine” with “local seasonal produce and regional ingredients,” according to Cameroon-born chef/owner Alain Njike, who recently relocated to Atlanta from Chicago.
Njike’s fine dining background includes stints at Charlie Trotter’s, the Peninsula Hotel, NoMI and Park 52. In late 2012, Njike partnered with the Chicago Bears’ Israel Idonije to open Alain’s — an African-inspired American restaurant in Chicago’s South Loop, which closed its doors after only a few months in business.
2635 Sandy Plains Rd., Suite 10, Marietta, 678-540-6642, sundried.us.
