"Taking advantage of some seriously stunning architecture — complete with an airy interior and lots of windows — Scout is the best example of the cozy Decatur neighborhood's revitalization; while still retaining its say-hi-to-the-neighbors charm, Oakhurst's revamped its core. Add to the gorgeous setting executive chef and partner Michael Semancik's New American cuisine, presented on a menu designed to encourage sharing and tasting, and you've got a winner. "full article

"It’s located inside a former Old Scottish Rite Hospital, and charges itself with a sense of duty akin to the meaning of its name... but in terms of food and not all that tying knots, reading compasses, and opening things with Swiss Army knives. Executive chef Michael Semancik, who worked with chefs Kevin Rathbun and Jay Swift before either had their own restaurants, leads the mission from the airy, naturally lit historic space. The kitchen puts out shareable snacks like split smoked chicken wings, Western-style beef jerky (basically teriyaki), and PBR-battered cauliflower, as well as regional entrees such as bowls of Georgia red shrimp Creole, and cast-iron tasso ham-crusted red fish. The drinks, courtesy of ATL barman Nate Shuman from the P’cheen days, are also expertly made. "full article

"Chris Martha, chef Michael Semancik, and beverage director Nate Shuman, who have all spent time at The Georgian Terrace hotel, are reuniting at Scout. Semancik will serve modern Southern cuisine, but he’s steering clear of typical comfort food. Shuman wants to pour 'a great version of your favorite drink — whether it’s a cocktail original to our restaurant or a classic that anyone could make at home.'" full article

"Southern cuisine restaurant Scout has named an executive chef in advance of its opening in Oakhurst later this year. The move will reunite Michael Semancik, who will serve as both executive chef and partner, with operating partner Chris Martha. The two first worked together when Martha hired Semancik for his first sous chef position at South City Kitchen more than 20 years ago. Most recently, they collaborated as the directors of the food and beverage program at the Georgian Terrace hotel.” full article

"A new Southern-inspired restaurant called Scout will soon join staples like Steinbeck’s and Mezcalito’s in Oakhurst. The dinner and weekend brunch spot is the brainchild of Chris Martha, formerly of Proof & Provision and McCray’s West Village Tavern. Scheduled to open in late June, Scout replaces McGowan’s Oakhurst Pub and a section of the Solarium at Scottish Rite, and aims to serve 'food interpretive of Southern regional cooking but not just fried chicken or meatloaf,' Martha says."full article
