Ford Fry to take over Bluepointe.

Ford Fry has done it again. The chef officially announced that he will be opening a restaurant in the former Bluepointe space in Buckhead. At the corner of Peachtree Road and Lenox Road, the still-unnamed restaurant will open in the fall of 2013 with a menu inspired by the flavors of Spain, Italy, and "possibly France." Fry told the AJC, "This will be far different than any of our other restaurants and will offer a completely unique dining experience in Buckhead." He added that he's most excited about "an oversized classic European bar with clear sight-lines into a wood burning hearth and even a dramatic crudo bar mounted with just harvested shellfish and seafood."

This will be the second slated Buckhead project for Ford Fry, as well as the second concept featuring a wood-burning hearth and the second acquisition of a former Buckhead Life Restaurant Group space. The chef's King + Duke will open in March in place of Nava and will primarily offer wood-roasted proteins. Fry also owns JCT Kitchen, No. 246, and the Optimist, has a non-profit food truck on the way, and is allegedly opening a restaurant in Alpharetta.
