Opening today for lunch and dinner in Buckhead is St. Cecilia, the highly anticipated newest restaurant from empire builder Ford Fry. The kitchen is helmed by chef Brian Horn, with pastries by Chrysta Poulos and a beverage program designed by Lara Creasy. The menu, centered around the cooking of the southern European coastline, is broken into such sections as crudo, antipasti, pasta, secondi, and salumi, along with soups, salads, and tartines for lunch and specialty cocktails, non-alcoholic cocktails, wine, and bottled beer. Check out all the offerings and more pictures below; the restaurant was designed by The Meyer Davis Studio and can accommodate 160 people with space at three chefs' tables for 12 and a 20-seat bar.
Located in The Pinnacle building replacing Buckhead Life restaurant Bluepointe, St. Cecilia will be open seven days a week and is Fry's fifth Atlanta restaurant. The chef/owner also runs JCT Kitchen, No. 246, The Optimist, and King + Duke, and he has a project in Krog Street Market called Superica and another one slated for Alpharetta mixed-use development Avalon set to open this Spring and Fall respectively.
