Might it be a second location of the one in Buckhead?

http://thebigketch.com

It looks like the same place, I just can't verify it on their website or social media sites.

Has anyone been to Big Ketch?  Would they compete with Hugo's or do they have their own seafood niche / clientele?

Side note, I did see some ppl out at Ricky's Fish Camp over the weekend, but I've given up hope that it will ever open, or that it will stay the fish camp concept.....

Are you saying they are open now?  Or that they are committed to Avalon and opening at the grand opening?  Avalon's update for 7/21 has it looking pretty rough still, and doesn't mention any restaurant openings.....

Now it's down to Wayne Gretzky 99 days. As a dude who does multi-media myself, perhaps I'm equally fascinated by the production as I am the progress, but they seem to be getting there http://youtu.be/tLgDI6EJKKw?list=UU-SX3wTOZosmhlw5cz7WvWQ

Nobody knows better than I about projected opening dates and actual ones, but with so much money invested, I think this is like the Olympics and World Cup--they have an etched in stone opening.

Ah, ok.  We have a date night coming up on Thurs, and I was going to venture up there and see what was open.  I'll give it a few more months....

Foundation Social Eatery or Osteria Mattone. You can't go wrong either way. So many strong runners up, but the two best restaurants in the Roz IMalwaysHO.

Yup, those are both excellent options. I like Foundation just a bit more, but you can't go wrong either way.

Yeah, it looked like Fix was almost done with the remodel when I peeked in their windows last week. It's going to be a good looking pizza joint.

My one visit to Hugo's didn't wow me, so I'll be interested in checking out Big Ketch when that opens.

We'll disagree there. I'm verra impressed with Hugo's. In fact, wifey pooh doing her book club there tonight and I demand she brings me some back.

New Urban Roswell brought up a very good point. I think this will be the first place on Canton Street that is not an original. Yes a few people have multiple restaurants, but everyone on Canton, including side streets like Plum, Green Street, etc is a one and only locale. A few years back, Mittie's was on Plum, but that was right before the transformation.

I too like Hugos... and interesting thought on Big Ketch as the 1st non original concept.  Hopefully it will not start a trend!

I told Jere Wood I have to approve any and all second locations from this point on. I've already pre-approved Fox Bros and Restaurant Eugene, but the rest need to make a compelling argument.

Mac Mcgees? Or am I missing what you're saying (which is entirely possible)?

Point well taken. Actually I embellished. He only said, "Strange for a restaurant's 2nd location to come to Canton St" so it was me who said first as I forget about MM. We should have brought in Brickstore Pub instead.
