Chef Ford Fry is at it again. While King + Duke, his new Colonial American restaurant in the former Nava space, is still in the works, he’s also inked a deal to begin another project in Buckhead.
Fry’s newest venture will take over the Bluepointe space in the Pinnacle Building at the corner of Peachtree and Lenox Roads. In a press release, Fry said, “This will be far different than any of our other restaurants and will offer a completely unique dining experience in Buckhead.”
The food will be inspired by the European flavors of Italy, Spain and possibly France. A name for the concept will be released early in the new year and the restaurant is slated to open late Fall 2013.
The space is being designed by Meyer Davis of New York. Fry commented, “What I am most excited about is an oversized classic European bar with clear sight-lines into a wood burning hearth and even a dramatic crudo bar mounted with just harvested shellfish and seafood.”
The newest restaurant will join JCT. Kitchen & Bar, No. 246, The Optimist and Oyster Bar at The Optimist, and the not-yet-open King + Duke in Fry’s family of restaurants.
