Kevin Ouzts is planning to launch lunch service at The Cockentrice, his meat-centric Krog Street Market restaurant, on Tuesday, April 14. In addition to offering the midday meal, Ouzts is shifting the dinner menu to focus on springtime flavors, and the restaurant's patio will be in service as well.
Lunch will be available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the bar area and on the patio, featuring The Spotted Trotter proprietor's charcuterie plates, sandwiches, and salads. Full bar service will be available to wash down the eats.
As for dinner, spring is in the air, but meat isn't taking a backseat to any vegetation at The Cockentrice. New dishes include roasted suckling pork confit with carrot and honey noodle, 60-hour tonkatsu pork broth, radish, and pickled turnips; and a 32-ounce dry-aged, hatchet-cut ribeye with gorgonzola potato tartiflette, king royal trumpet mushrooms, and crispy shallot. There's also carrot vermicelli with fresh spring peas, white asparagus, and lamb belly bacon with lamb shank ragu and a bantam egg.
Dinner is available Tuesday through Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to midnight.
