Fresh Seafood Restaurant’s Second Outpost to Benefit from Area Chef Favorite

ATLANTA (Sept. 14, 2015)–Even though the final days of summer are slipping away, The Big Ketch Saltwater Grill is assuring Roswell residents that the freshest seafood available will soon be making waves. The popular Buckhead restaurant is opening its second location at 1105 Canton Street this fall to bring a “beach chic” dining experience to Downtown Roswell. Chef Derek Dollar, who also leads the kitchen at Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails in Crabapple, will lend his gourmet touch to the menu.

“With a lighter approach to cuisine, we’re looking to bring fresh seafood options to Canton Street,” says Dollar. “There are some great chef-driven restaurants on the corridor already, and I’m proud to be a part of this dining destination.”

Dollar, who will continue to helm the seed-to-fork menu at Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails, has plans to enhance The Big Ketch’s already popular menu of fresh seafood with new items unique to the Roswell location. These include spicy conch fritters, a variety of specialty oysters, grouper Reuben, Charleston curry seafood bowl, and jerked pork chops with caramelized pineapple. Guest favorites from the Buckhead location, like basil-Blue Moon mussels and the already famous grouper sandwich, will also be available.

The Big Ketch and Milton's are owned and operated by Southern Proper Hospitality Group, which also operates Buckhead restaurants Smokebelly BBQ, Gypsy Kitchen and The Southern Gentleman.   This innovative company's newest restaurant in Roswell will feature two separate dining rooms and a bar area, as well as an outdoor patio. The Big Ketch Roswell is scheduled to open in October 2015 and will serve lunch and dinner.
