Three Stars for St. Cecilia: 'Another Hit' for Ford Fry

Creative Loafing's Jennifer Zyman examined St. Cecilia, and found that restaurateur Ford Fry "has another hit on his hands." In multiple visits, Zyman enjoyed ink spaghetti with clams, short-rib-stuffed agnolotti, cappelletti stuffed with chopped Georgia shrimp, and Italian langoustines, among other dishes. The cocktail program, run by Lara Creasy was "strong," and service "has been excellent."

It's not uncommon to see a proud-looking Fry seated in the restaurant. One eye stays on the conversation with the important-looking people around him as the other surveys the room. In a recent interview, Fry was asked whether he considers himself a chef or an entrepreneur. He answered chef. I respectfully disagree. Once again, he's created a restaurant that's one of the hardest tables to get in town and he has four more coming. He's in mogul territory now.

THE ELSEWHERE AND THE BLOGS: Marie, Let's Eat! paid a visit to Verde Taqueria in Brookhaven and enjoyed tacos, even if they weren't all that authentic. Hot Dish Review tasted a successful new menu at Meehan's in Sandy Springs and grilled octopus and seared sea scallops at Midtown's Lure. Atlanta Restaurant Blog dined on an Ahi tuna burger at The Counter Burger and determined that Common Quarter is a departure from the chains in East Cobb. Bella Vivere rated food, service, and decor at Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q five out of five.
