The Spotted Trotter and Frankly are going the way of The Cockentrice. Two months after Kevin and Megan Ouzts decided to shutter their Krog Street Market restaurant, they are closing down their market butcher shop and hot dog stand. Officials from the market confirmed the moves in a statement provided to Eater Atlanta.
"Megan and Kevin Ouzts have decided to close Frankly and The Spotted Trotter at Krog Street Market after determining the need for only one brick and mortar location to complement their wholesale business. Their final day of operations will be this Saturday, December 31, 2016. Castellucci Hospitality Group has confirmed they will add the market stall to their recently announced KSM footprint. Details regarding their market stall and restaurant concept will be shared in the new year."
The Spotted Trotter will continue to operate out of its original location in Edgewood. After months of speculation, Kevin Ouzts was recently announced as executive chef at Barleygarden Kitchen and Craft Bar, the forthcoming Avalon restaurant from the Hop City team.
Shortly after The Cockentrice’s shutter was announced in October, the Castellucci Hospitality Group revealed plans to take over the space. It’s the same restaurant group behind The Iberian Pig, Cooks & Soldiers, Double Zero, and Sugo. The name and concept of the Castelluccis’ forthcoming restaurant have not been announced. It’s on track to open this spring.
