After a few nights of soft opening events, Scout is officially opening in the old McGowan’s space at Scottish Rite to the general public this afternoon.
In announcing the opening, Eater described the new Oakhurst spot thusly…
The venture is a reunion of sorts for a few veterans of Midtown’s Georgian Terrace hotel. Chris Martha, ex-director of food and beverage at the hotel, revealed plans for Scout in March. Michael Semancik, previously of the Georgian Terrace’s Livingston Restaurant + Bar, joined as executive chef in June. Nate Shuman, known for his work behind the stick at the hotel’s Proof & Provision, was announced as beverage director in August.
Scout’s official website doesn’t currently include a menu, but the focus will be on becoming a neighborhood spot that features local and “not overdone comfort food” Southern fare, according to the Eater post.
