So there’s a new (well fairly new) kid in town called the Kennesaw Marketplace. It’s located on the corner of Barrett Pkwy and Hwy 41 and has been in development over the past year or so. Whole Foods (scheduled to open later this year) is the anchor store, but the plaza includes stores like Hobby Lobby, Academy Sports, and many others. Every month a new place opens and several of these places are restaurants. Some are the usual suspects like Newks and Panda Express, however there are a few that aren’t chain restaurants or only have a couple of locations. I visited one of the restaurants today, Valcano Steak & Sushi.
