The Castellucci Hospitality Group will open a food stall called Recess at Krog Street Market, according to Atlanta Magazine. Chef Victoria Shore, previously of CHG’s Cooks & Soldiers and Double Zero, will reportedly run the stall.
Recess will take over the former Spotted Trotter space, a Krog Street Market spokesperson tells Eater Atlanta. In an interview with Atlanta, Shore says “fresh, lighter, plant-based food, like salads, grain bowls, toasts, and sandwiches,” will make up the menu. The stall will be open for lunch and dinner during the week, and weekend breakfast service will offer items such as baked goods, granola, and avocado toast. Beverages may include cold-brew coffee, iced tea, lemonade, wines, and a rotating frozen cocktail.
The Recess business model is a departure for CHG. The company’s other restaurants —The Iberian Pig and Sugo in addition to Cooks & Soldiers and Double Zero — focus on Mediterranean-influenced small plates. Bar Mercado, CHG’s forthcoming full-service restaurant that sits adjacent to Recess at Krog Street Market, will serve Spanish tapas.
The Spotted Trotter was one of the original businesses to open at Krog Street Market, and owners Kevin and Megan Ouzts also ran a full-service restaurant, The Cockentrice, out of the development. The Cockentrice closed last October, and The Spotted Trotter followed in December. CHG quickly acquired each space after the respective shutters.
Recess is currently on track for a “late-fall” opening, per Atlanta. Bar Mercado should make its debut in September.
