Take me away to St. Cecilia

St. Cecilia Interior

This weekend I was transported on a Coastal European Culinary Journey without having to leave Atlanta. My good friend Chef Ford Fry combined forces with Chef Brian Horn and opened up a new restaurant in the heart of Buckhead Atlanta with a world-class vibe. The food reflects coastal Italy but maintains a strong one of a kind identity with inventive spins and local metropolitan elements. The towering architecture of the building evokes a sense of world travel and so, good times and sacred spaces.  

 

Most memorable crudo from the raw menu was the Maine scallop with green apple foam with fennel and pine nut.   A close second antipasti of distinction was the Salt cod beignets with caper aioli and lemon both of which we tried  and were wonderful indeed! Everyone seemed to raving about the Triggerfish with wood roasted calamari, heirloom potato, citrus and fennel and I must agree it’s food memory effects are lasting!  The Raviloli with apple and mascarpone, Maine lobster and cracked pepper was buttery rich and decadent, and even the most simple dish of Good bred chicken roasted with lemon and potato puree was a talking point at our table.  

We ended our meal experience with a decadent NutellaTorta and the Affogato a blend of chantilly, chocolate pearls, espresso and gelato of our choice….wow, loved it, loved it!

Living the good life in Atlanta with flavors from around the globe!…make time to book a table and experience this new Atlanta foodie hotspot – please!
