Uncle Jack’s on Canton Street will serve from-scratch American fare along with a beverage selection and “more inviting decor than your typical neighborhood bar and pub,” according to the restaurant’s website.

Big Ketch Saltwater Grill, a concept from Southern Proper Hospitality Group, chose not to renew its lease earlier this year in May. The hospitality group is also behind Tin Lizzy’s Cantina and Gypsy’s Kitchen

In November of last year, Degel signed a 10-year lease for an Uncle Jack’s Meat House concept in the Peachtree Corners Town Center development in what will be his second Atlanta-area location for the concept. Once construction finishes, the New York entrepreneur will have three restaurants in Atlanta with an Uncle Jack’s Meat House already operating in Duluth. 

Degel on Friday did not immediately respond to What Now Atlanta’s request for comment.

Someone has some ITP issues! I didn’t think people were still so douchy about being ITP! Congrats on choosing one geographical location over another. Your parents must be proud!

Keep your faux retro-hipster vibe in the burbs, where it belongs.
