CUMMING, Ga. — Acclaimed local chef Todd Hogan is planning to open a new restaurant in Forsyth County's Vickery Village.

The concept, called Branchwater, will be at 5820 South Vickery Circle. This location was most recently the home of Dunwoody Restaurant Group's Robin Hood Tavern. Expect an opening in late May.

Hogan drew inspiration for the name from the small streams used by whiskey distillers in the American south. As such don't be surprised to see an extensive bourbon offering at Branchwater's bar. The kitchen will serve steak and seafood and will only keep dinner hours.

Hogan, a Cherokee County resident, chose Vickery in part to be closer to home. He also wanted to give back to his local community by offering residents a fine dining experience without having to drive into town.

Hogan's resume is deep. He's a graduate of Johnson & Wales in Charleston and has cooked at the James Beard house in New York City. He owned the Indigo restaurant in Roswell and consulted on concepts including Slate Table and Tap and Farm Burger in Dunwoody. His most recent restaurant gig was executive chef at Vinings Inn.

The Vickery development's residential, retail and restaurant business all struggled through the recession.

The addition of Branchwater and craft beer brewers Cherry Street Co-Op may be the shot in the arm this area needs.
