Secreto Southern Kitchen to open in Brookhaven next week

Brookhaven will soon get a taste of an Alpharetta favorite.

The second location of Secreto Southern Kitchen & Bar is set to open July 11 in mixed-use development Brookleigh Marketplace at 3575 Durden Drive.

Chef Boyd A. Rose and managing partner Paulo Junior based the menu on Rose’s Southern upbringing and the recipes his mother and grandmother made throughout his childhood. Dishes include crab bisque with lump crabmeat, golden sherry, basil oil and grilled ciabatta crostini; Southern fried chicken with buttermilk mash, garlic green beans and smoked bacon jalapeño gravy; pan seared diver scallops with lemon garlic shrimp and asparagus risotto and red wine honey syrup; and corned beef hash with sunny side up egg and redeye gravy.

On the beverage side is a wine list heavy on selections from small producers in California and Oregon alongside a mixture of French, Spanish and Italian varietals as well as a selection of liquors and cordials  and new and classic cocktails.

The restaurant features an 86-seat indoor dining room with an additional 50 seats outdoors, as well as a 22-seat private dining room.
