Ford Fry's Northern Italian/Mediterranean restaurant St. Cecilia is slated to open this December, at the earliest, in Buckhead. The restaurant will be helmed by chef Brian Horn, who's helped with all of Fry's places so far, and will focus on European and Italian seafood and pastas served with wine and light cocktails developed by beverage consultant Lara Creasy. As Fry tells Atlanta Magazine, St. Cecilia will have a "massive" bar and an open kitchen featuring a "miniature version" of the wood-burning hearth made famous by King + Duke.
And as for the empire builder's other projects? He's got King + Duke, No. 246, The Optimist, and JCT Kitchen already open, and in addition to the St. Cecilia, his Krog Street Market restaurant Superica will open around May of next year. Beyond that, there may be a "sister restaurant to the Optimist" coming to Inman Park's Elizabeth Street, and, possibly, a new place in Houston, Texas.
