À la carte dining service begins today at Candler Park’s Lazy Betty. The Dekalb Avenue restaurant, owned by former Le Bernardin chefs Ron Hsu and Aaron Phillips, centers around two impressive tasting menus.

Diners who don’t want to commit to seven-plus courses and a couple of hours of eating can now order from an à la carte menu. It’s only available for walk-ins in the lounge, located near the chef’s counter, and eventually on the outdoor patio, which should open within a few weeks.

Dishes on the abbreviated list of six bites take cues from the tasting menus, like caviar two ways, including one served with a fluffy biscuit and cream, salmon tartare on squid ink chips, and spiced duck rillettes with sour cherries.

Dessert offers two choices: a “creamsicle” made with citrus compote and white chocolate or an assortment of seasonal ice creams and sorbets.
