Lawrenceville’s Burgeoning Food Scene

Visitors have a variety of choice when it comes to eating well in Gwinnett’s county seat. In addition to the city’s second brewery, Lawrenceville has welcomed five new eateries to its downtown area with more slated as redevelopment efforts continue to unfold.

Mainstays like Cosmo’s Pizza + Social, Lawrenceville’s most senior eating establishment with a presence for nearly 20 years, round out an expanding array of choices when it comes to nourishing body and soul with food and fun.

The healthy mix of restaurant choices among local retail options has made downtown Lawrenceville the go-to destination for an afternoon or a full day. From Southern homestyle at the Cornerstop Cafe to seafood at Oyster Bay, there’s something for all tastes. Have a sweet tooth? Pick up a one-of-a-kind custom dessert from Tier Couture Bakery.

“I love Local Republic for the ambience and the appetizers,” says downtown Lawrenceville resident Alayne Smith, who also enjoys Dominick’s for its excellent Italian cuisine. Smith loves the Chicken Saltimbocca and says she gave up on figuring Weight Watchers points for the restaurant’s delicious bread swimming in oil and shaved garlic.

Lawrenceville Mayor David Still says restaurants are a big part of Lawrenceville’s success as a draw for county residents. His previous office is situated across from the Strange Taco Bar, just one of many options to whet your appetite on the square and in the surrounding area.
