Miami-based seafood spot Crabman 305 is opening an Atlanta outpost downtown, at 171 Auburn Avenue, between Piedmont Avenue and Jesse Hill Jr. Drive.
The seafood joint specializes in seafood dishes of all kinds, particularly, crab, lobster, and conch. “We do fried conch, conch salads, conch fritters. However you want your conch, we make it,” says Tony Trotter, who will manage the new Atlanta outpost.
The only big difference between the spot in Miami and the one in Atlanta, Trotter says, is the set-up. While Crabman 305 Miami is a take-out only operation, Crabman 305 Atlanta will be a full service restaurant, with plenty of seating, hopefully some of it outside. “We’re getting a lot of buzz right now,” says Trotter. “There are a lot of Miami transplants in Atlanta, and the future of Crabman 305 is looking promising.”
Despite the buzz, Crabman 305 won’t be opening for a few months. Trotter is going through the permitting process now, and will soon start working with a designer to craft the restaurant’s interior. Check back in in about a month or so for more details and an opening date, and in the meantime, prepare your stomachs for a big old platter of conch.
