Smoke + Duck Sauce, a new concept from Gary Lin, the dude that brought Atlanta Chow Bing, should open in Suburban Plaza this November, Lin told What Now Atlanta (WNA) in an interview Wednesday.

The restaurant – originally called “Chow-Batta” – would be situated in suite 2641 A-B adjacent L.A. Fitness, a 1,900-square-foot space with a patio, at 2641 N Decatur Road in the newly-renovated Walmart-anchored shopping center.

The Decatur Smoke + Duck Sauce would be the second location for the restaurant.

Lin opened the first Smoke + Duck Sauce in the Parkwood Circle shopping center, anchored by CVS Pharmacy on Powers Ferry Road, late-September.

“The South has been known for great barbecue for generations,” Lin wrote in an email to WNA. “However, our Eastern friends have their own flavors that make ‘cue even more delicious.”

The name Smoke + Duck Sauce encompasses everything Lin hopes to achieve at his new eatery: mixing traditional southern barbecue with duck sauce creating a “unique flavor experience not found anywhere else.”

The menu would offer smoked meats paired with sides such as white rice, egg-fried rice, pickled Chinese cabbage, Asian slaw and mixed greens, using organic foods for a lighter and more nutritious experience, he said.

Lin has plans to franchise Smoke + Duck Sauce, a concept that doesn’t “require traditional Chinese chefs.”

Where should Lin open the third Smoke + Duck Sauce? Leave your picks in the comments!…
