Krog Street Market's The Cockentrice To Open Jan. 2

New American Charcuterie to be third full-service restaurant in Inman Park redevelopment.

The Cockentrice, from the owners of The Spotted Trotter, is slated to open for dinner service on Friday, January 2 in Krog Street Market (KSM), the Inman Park redevelopment in a press release announced Tuesday.

“To say that opening my first restaurant is a dream come true would be an understatement," Kevin Ouzts, chef and owner, said in the prepared statement.

"This moment has been the ultimate goal since opening The Spotted Trotter in 2010, and I am beyond excited to finally show Atlanta who I am as a chef and not just as a charcutier. It has been an honor working with the employees, farmers, vendors, and other chefs who have made this opportunity possible, and I am looking forward to showcasing all of that passion on this new stage.”

The Cockentrice will serve "just about everything you can do with a piece of meat" and feature cocktails, beers and ales, and a wine list crafted to pair with menu items.

With seating for upwards of 130 people, the full-service restaurant has an outdoor patio facing Krog Street and is connected to The Spotted Trotter’s second butcher and cheese shop.

The Cockentrice will be the third full-service restaurant to open at KSM joining The Luminary and Craft Izakaya.
