The Cockentrice, the meat-centric Krog Street Market eatery from The Spotted Trotter's Kevin Ouzts, is adding lunch service on Sundays, reports Atlanta Magazine. The restaurant is currently open only for dinner, but will change Sunday hours to open at 11 a.m. and close at 5 p.m.
General manager Daisy Nagel tells Atlanta the new lunch service, which starts February 22, will take French inspiration:
Think rich, meaty foods made with local ingredients. The butcher's block and bar will go French as well, slicing and stirring up French-themed classics, such as the Nduja Aquavit bloody mary and a vieux carre redux and an assortment of French salamis and cheeses from The Spotted Trotter.
The Cockentrice opened in Krog Street Market on January 2. Once the lunch change is made, dinner will be available Tuesday through Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.
UPDATE: Owners now say that their plan to close for dinner on Sunday and open for lunch instead is no longer final. They are actively working with the Krog Street Market team on logistics and are hopeful for the new service. For now, the Cockentrice will remain open on Sundays from 5:30 p.m. until 11 p.m.
