Co-owner and executive chef, The Federal and Bantam + Biddy
Shaun Doty is a transplant from Oklahoma and a star of Atlanta’s dining scene. After a couple concepts that eventually shuttered, Doty found success with his casual chicken eatery, Bantam + Biddy. In November, he amazed Atlantans with his take on the French bistro, The Federal. He also wowed the James Beard Foundation, snagging a nomination for Best New Restaurant.
Favorite Restaurant: Bocado, Westside
Why he likes it: It’s a go-to place for me because it has a neighborhood feel. It’s unpretentious and…they provide a high-quality experience.
Favorite Dish: I get their burger. They have a creative menu, but I love the burger. I love the meats they use. It’s tasty and it’s classic, American comfort food.
