Krog Street Market is Losing One of Its Anchor Restaurant Tenants

The Cockentrice will shutter this weekend in the Inman Park mixed-use.

UPDATE (December 30, 2016): Frankly and The Spotted Trotter to Shutter at Krog Street Market

Krog Street Market (KSM) is losing one of its original five "anchor restaurants" come this weekend.

The Cockentrice, a meat-centric concept from The Spotted Trotter butcher shop owners Kevin and Megan Ouzts, will close its doors for good after Saturday's dinner service, the company Friday announced in a statement.

A Paces Properties – the developer behind KSM – spokesperson confirmed the news with What Now Atlanta and provided this statement from the real estate firm's president, David Cochran:

“Two years ago, we bet on Kevin and Megan with The Spotted Trotter and The Cockentrice. We quickly learned that their entrepreneurial spirit, culinary creativity and pride in product was all part of the fire that helped put Krog Street Market on the map. While we are disappointed about the decision to close The Cockentrice, we would bet on them again and appreciate that their family comes first.”

Kevin and Megan Ouzts, who will celebrate 10 years of marriage next year, in the statement said the couple wanted to focus on their relationship after experiencing "personal tragedies in the past year in our close circle of family and friends."

"There is so much more to life than working seven days a week and saying ‘I love you’ via texts and Post-it Notes," the Ouzts's said.

News of The Cockentrice's closing seems abrupt as just last week the restaurant posted help wanted ADs to its Facebook page seeking line cooks.

The Spotted Trotter and Frankly, two additional KSM concepts from Ouzts will "stay open as market stalls," the spokesperson confirmed.

The Cockentrice first opened its doors January 2015. No word on what will open in the restaurant's place.
