Helming the kitchen will be executive chef Daniel Chance, who worked about five years at various of Anne Quatrano's restaurants, including Bacchanalia, the now defunct Abattoir and at Star Provisions before moving to its
sister restaurant W.H. Stiles Fish Camp when it debuted at Ponce City Market in the fall of 2015
The fare at Watchman's will be "mostly Southern sustainable – from south of the Chesapeake all the way down to east of Texas,"
Chance said in an April interview with AJC food editor Ligaya Figueras
. The restaurant will offer roughly a dozen oyster varieties, with as many as possible sourced from the South. Besides the raw bar, diners can expect approximately a dozen small plates, six to seven large plates, eight side dishes and a small dessert menu.
