In the latest installment of Knife & Fork, Christiane Lauterbach praises Ford Fry's latest concept St. Cecilia. Go for the service, Lara Creasy's cocktails, and seafood dishes like the "awesome" spaghetti with Jonah crab, razor clams, and "perfect" triggerfish. New Buckhead destination pizzeria Don Antonio gets two and a half stars for housemade burrata, flash-fried pizzas, and irresistible pre-pie dishes like montanarine, angioletti, and battilocchio del giorno. Lauterbach awards the new brunch service at Cakes & Ale two stars for good cocktails and entrees like the croque madame, classic quiche, and six-minute egg on polenta. Sprinkles gets one star for "squat" cupcakes that cost more outside at the ATM than inside the actual shop, and Castleberry Hill's Smoke Ring gets the same for its "moderately trendy southern-inflected comfort fare."
