ROSWELL, Ga. -- Canton Street in Roswell is such a good place to run a restaurant that Hicham Azhari owns three of them here.

"It's great; it's a great, great town," he said. 

Azhari's Salt Factory Pub was featured on the Food Network last year, bringing national attention to his Shepherd's Pie.

But it's the Prince Edward Island mussels that are the most popular dish.

The menu's designed to take diners around the world.

"People are courageous," said Azhari, who also own INC Street Food and Little Alley Steak. "They want to try new things and discover new flavors."

Across Canton Street, Roswell Provisions lets you sample the South of France.

It's a European-style market.

"We have over 75 different kinds of cheese and meats," said employee Crystal Mason. "We have a French pastry chef who makes our pastries every day. It's a hip local market."

It opened seven months ago and quickly caught the attention of Roswell's long-time mayor.

"I just like the atmosphere," said Mayor Jere Wood. "You feel like you're in France."

Not far from Canton Street, The Roswell Tap on Alpharetta Street is preparing to market its popular grits chips nationwide.

Owner Sean McDonough has teamed up with comic Jeff Foxworthy to create "Jeff Foxworthy's Original Grit Chips" and accompanying dips.

They'll begin sales this summer.
