If you’re beach-starved and want somewhere that will make the city feel a little less landlocked, Watchman’s in Krog Street Market is the place. The entrees on their seafood-heavy menu can get pricey, so stick with the small plates like grouper tartare and a shrimp roll, and definitely get the hush puppies. Bring a group to test out their impressive oyster selection, and make sure to get a spritz or daiquiri, too.
