JenChan’s Restaurant and Market opens Wednesday, September 4, in Cabbagetown. The “mostly Southern, mainly Asian” restaurant takes over the former Mouth of the South space on Carroll Street. Owners Jen Chan and Emily Chan are already preparing meals in the restaurant’s kitchen for their online food delivery service, JenChan’s Supper Delivery Club.
The 50-seat restaurant includes a bar. The couple is currently waiting for approval on JenChan’s liquor license. A small market also offers fresh and frozen prepared meals and other local food and goods.
“Our market will have our freshly frozen egg rolls, kolaches, breakfast buns, char siu bao, lasagnas, soups, etc. for sale as well as Hunter Cattle grass-fed beef jerky, Emily G’s jams, and some other special treats,” the Chans tell Eater Atlanta
The restaurant’s menu includes a few popular items from the Chan’s delivery service like black bean spare ribs, crispy Asian wings, and summer rolls along with dishes such as Szechuan chicken salad sliders, a cheesesteak with peppers and onions, gouda cheese, and choice of meat, and garlic tahini rice noodles mixed with broccolini and carrots.
The Chans say they may open next week with a limited menu to allow their staff time to “perfect” each dish. Sunday brunch is planned for the future as well as a ticketed Sunday night supper club.
