Beginning with lunch service today, St. Cecilia is the first of Atlanta's highly anticipated openings for 2014 to make its debut. It's set in Buckhead's Pinnacle Building, in the space formerly occupied by Bluepointe, and the menu, designed by executive chef Brian Horn and chef-owner Ford Fry, focuses on Italian-inspired cuisine. Horn says his dishes will show a strong influence from Northwest Italy's Ligurian coastline, with starters including a salad of wood-roasted octopus, marinated beans and arugula, and entrees boasting tough-to-find items like triggerfish (served with charred calamari and fennel) and loup de mer (grilled whole and garnished with marcona almonds and citrus). Chrysta Poulos handles pastries, breads and desserts, while Lara Creasy is responsible for the cocktails and wine; both, like Horn, are veterans of Fry's other restaurants (JCT. Kitchen, No. 246, The Optimist, King + Duke). St. Cecilia is open for lunch weekdays from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM, and for dinner starting at 5 PM every day (staying open till 10 PM most nights, 11 PM Friday-Saturday).
