Ford Fry’s St. Cecilia and More Openings, Rebrandings

St.Cecilia

Ford Fry’s St. Cecilia opens

Chef/owner Ford Fry and his Rocket Farm Restaurants team welcomed 2014 by opening St. Cecilia for lunch today. Located in the former Bluepointe space at the corner of Peachtree and Lenox roads, the concept is helmed by executive chef Brian Horn with a menu inspired by southern European seaside spots.

Look for pasta, roasted fish and fresh crudo served in an opulent two-story setting with a chef’s table and private dining room. Fry’s other restaurants include JCT Kitchen, No. 246, the Optimist, and King + Duke.

3455 Peachtree Road, Atlanta. 404-554-9995, stceciliaatl.com.

Cuts Steakhouse opens downtown

Cuts Steakhouse opens softly for dinner tonight, switching spaces with Truva in the downtown Atlanta dining district. Executive chef Donnie Wicker, a native of the Pinehurst area of North Carolina, brings a Southern influence to the classic steakhouse menu with dishes such as Southern-fried lobster tail, pimento mac-and-cheese, and creamy cheddar grits.

Innerworks Design Group was in charge of the build-out, which includes two dining rooms and a bar area.

60 Andrew Young International Blvd. N.E., Atlanta. 404-525-3399, cutsatlanta.com.

Rebrandings yield G’s Midtown, Table at Ten

Last month, Communitas Hospitality (10th & Piedmont; HOBNOB) rebranded Gilbert’s Cafe & Bar as G’s Midtown, a “new American gastropub,” with updated decor and a new menu offering “everyday comfort food with a modern, chef-driven twist.” communitashospitality.com.

Now, nearby Ten Atlanta has rebranded and will relaunch later this week as Table at Ten, with a new chef and a new focus on Southern comfort food. tenatlanta.com.

Let’s just call it “Cuts.” Nobody wants to eat there anyway, and I’m too tired to think of a good name.

Downtown Atlanta has a dining district?

Downtown dining district is on P’tree btw North (if you count SoNo a downtown) and let’s just say Woodruff Park.
Some of them are fun and interesting.
I live in the city, but I grew up in the burbs. I remember going to the Varsity (I know, not fine dining), the Cellar in P’tree Plaza Macy’s, the SunDial, Dailey’s, City Grill, etc.
So it’s fair to say there has been a downtown dining district for a long time.
Not sure if Azio is still open, but I understand the Polaris is coming back, and of course there will always be Morton’s.
If you are staying in one of the big hotels or just want to be a tourist in your town try Trader Vic’s. t’s a blast.
