New Restaurants Opening In Nocatee

October 8, 2017


South Kitchen and Spirits, a popular Southern-inspired restaurant and bar in the Avondale neighborhood, will open a second location in Nocatee Town Center East. Realty, The restaurant, scheduled to open December of 2017, will be located behind Dunkin' Donuts and MShack.

When South opened in the highly competitive Avondale neighborhood, diners quickly welcomed its casual yet refine take on Southern cuisine and cocktails from scratch with fresh ingredients. Former Orsay chef Brian Siebenschuh serves as the restaurant's managing partner and teamed up with Chef Sam Sottile to create an award-winning menu that includes the Fil A. O. Chick sandwich (a nod to the popular chicken-focused, Atlanta-based Chik-Fil-A) and a soulful take on catfish and grits.

Owner Jason Motley told the Nocatee community blog, "Initial response to the South Kitchen & Spirits concept in Avondale has been overwhelmingly positive, so we're really looking forward to being able to bring SKS's brand of southern hospitality to Nocatee. It's an area that we've been considering for a second location since day one, based on the opportunity to be one of the first full service dining & bar options, as well as the long-term potential for growth."

The 4,050 square foot Nocatee location will feature a covered patio and large bar area. As with the Avondale location, the bar program will feature hand-crafted cocktails, local beer and wine.

In 2012, Timothy and Theresa Poynter opened a concept in downtown Fernandina Beach that payed homage to the fish camps made popular throughout old Florida. Almost immediately after opening a second location in the Five Points neighborhood in 2016, the couple began to look for a third location in a growing, family-friendly neighborhood that appreciated an authentic take on fresh seafood.

With an expected opening before Thanksgiving 2017, Nocatee diners will welcome Timoti's Seafood Shak in the western end-cap of the new Nocatee Town Center Building- opposite of Jersey Mike's and OrangeTheory.  

Timoti's Seafood Shak is a fast-casual, family-friendly restaurant serves only wild caught seafood. Every meal is cooked to order fresh- and their shrimp are all local or domestic.  The menu includes seafood baskets, tacos, sandwiches, salads and rice boxes, Timotis also features Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten-free options.

The Nocatee location will include an outdoor play area, connected to a patio with outdoor seating and a kids play area with a boat. Beer and wine will also be served inside as well as in a bar area integrated within the covered outdoor patio.
