Stem will be located next to Doug Torbush's restaurant at Merchant's Walk.
The restaurant owner who wanted to give the East Cobb area a unique dining experience his expanding his vision. Doug Torbush announced this week that in April he will be opening Stem, a 39-seat wine and cocktail bar, next to his acclaimed Seed Kitchen and Bar at the Merchant's Walk Shopping Center. According to an item in the AJC's Food and More blog, the idea for Stem grew -- no pun intended -- shortly after Torbush opened Seed in late 2010. The wine bar will serve around 40 different wines priced between $7-$22, as well as small plates of food as accompaniments. In recent weeks, Seed has revised its Sunday brunch menu.
