Atlanta, Georgia (January 15, 2016) – Megan and Kevin Ouzts, the dynamic husband and wife team behind The Spotted Trotter, The Cockentrice and Frankly, are hosting an unforgettable one-year anniversary celebration on Monday, January 18, 2016 from 7 to 10 p.m. for their popular new American charcuterie restaurant located at Krog Street Market. Featuring a live swing band, Caleb Warren and The Perfect Gentlemen, revelers are invited to mix and mingle and be the first to explore an array of complimentary selections from The Cockentrice’s new Tavern Menu. Of course, the bar will be open and showcasing The Cockentrice’s creative craft cocktail menu and signature favorites. The Cockentrice’s one-year anniversary celebration is open to the public simply by RSVPing to events@thespottedtrotter.com.

Opening in January 2016, The Cockentrice is a celebration of charcuterie and meat cookery, melding traditional and modern cooking techniques plucked from the rich heritage of the Southern United States and beyond.  Open in Krog Street Market in Atlanta, Ga. and owned and led by Executive Chef Kevin Ouzts, the new American charcuterie restaurant features a decisive menu utilizing the preeminent ingredients he has become known for at The Spotted Trotter. With on-site butchers purveying the finest pastured meats and cheese mongers partnering hand-in-hand with premium local dairies, it’s The Cockentrice’s mission to pay tribute to the farmers and its fiercely supportive food community by making food the right way with every dish.

“Surviving year one for any business is a feat, but that is especially true when you’re opening up your first restaurant during the height of what we would call Atlanta’s dining renaissance that occurred last year.  We couldn’t let this milestone pass without celebrating the customers, vendors, and employees who made this all possible.  We’re looking forward to 2016 and beyond,” says Chef Ouzts.

In conjunction with the one-year anniversary, The Cockentrice has launched a new Tavern Menu. Geared towards their bustling bar crowd and available at all times, including late night, the Tavern Menu is sure to become a fast favorite with a selection of items for $10 to $15 including Spotted Trotter Andouille Crusty Mac and Cheese; Sweet Potato Pillows in Bacon Caramel, Super Green Food Slaw with Toasted Almonds; Kale and Swiss Chard, and The B. A. Baracus (Bacon and Apple) Grilled Cheese. For 2016, Chef Ouzts has also revamped the dinner menu, creating accessible and affordable menu for all tastes, and will continue to offer weekend brunch, a 5-course Tuesday Tasting menu for $35, half price wine on Wednesdays, and Charcuterie Happy Hour every Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The Cockentrice is located at Krog Street Market, 99 Krog Street NE, Atlanta, GA 30307.  For more information, visit thecockentrice.com or call 470.428.2733. Stay connected on Twitter at @cockentrice, on Instagram at @thecockentrice and Facebook at www.facebook.com/thecockentrice.
