Shaun Doty’s Bantam + Biddy now open

372937_382325915135269_636007358_nBantam + Biddy, Shaun Doty’s new fast-casual chicken restaurant in Ansley Mall is now open. Chefs Doty and Lance Gummere, most recently of The Shed at Glenwood, are cooking up some locally-pastured bird for lunch and dinner.

The restaurant offers meat-and-three plates with a quarter ($10) or half chicken ($14) or Niman Ranch pork ($10) plus three sides from a lengthy list of daily and seasonal options. Other entrees include pork schnitzel ($14), meatloaf made with White Oak Pastures ground beef ($10), salads and sandwiches. And to keep it interesting, daily blue plate specials (starting at 2 p.m.) will bring items like chicken and dumplings and fried catfish with Creole sauce. The menu also includes a number of gluten-free items, as did Doty’s menu at Yeah! Burger.

Breakfast, which starts next month, will include dishes made with pastured eggs and poultry. Look for chicken and waffles, chicken liver hash and eggs, eggs Benedict and more.

Bantam + Biddy’s 2,000-square-foot space was designed by The Johnson Studio and seats 50 people inside and 30 on the patio.

Doty and Gummere are also working on a second location at Atlantic Station, a spin-off of Bantam + Biddy, to open in early 2013. It will offer a smaller version of the original menu.

1544 Piedmont Road, Atlanta. 11:30 a.m. – 10 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays, 11:30 a.m. – 11 p.m. Sundays, 11:30 a.m. – 9 p.m. Sundays. (Hours will adjust with the addition of breakfast next month.) 404-907-3469.

Sounds like a step up from most meat-and-threes and worth a try.

I’d love a good Korean fried chicken joint within the Perimeter. Any reccomendations?

Lance’s pork schnitzel slider at The Shed was to die for,especially with pear jam.

According to the menu it’s a meat and two, unless you are counting the bread.

I’m curious to try this. But to me $10 for 1/4 chicken and 2 sides + 1 bread seems pricey for a “fast casual” place. But if the quality is there, I suppose it’s worth it.

I am Anton Chigurh. For me it’s three … and free … if they know what’s good for them. And they do.
