St Cecilia, from Atlanta chef-owner Ford Fry, is one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta, GA. The last time I visited Atlanta for work, we had our holiday dinner at here and it was fantastic! The ambience is spectacular and the food is even better. They serve coastal European food – simple and thoughtful dishes inspired by the coastlines of Italy, France, and Spain – in Buckhead’s Pinnacle Building.
With an old-world, ingredient-driven approach, St Cecilia displays the Italian trademarks that have always stood the test of time but with versatile and local Southern ingredients.
The menu has plenty of options, but seafood and pasta lovers will be especially delighted. Start with small plates like fresh Crudo, cured meats, Hearth Roasted Octopus, and Burrata. Then move on to seasonal entrées, like Maine Sea Scallops and Wood Roasted Bronzino. And after dinner, sample a few of pastry chef Chrysta Poulos’ Italian-inspired desserts, like the amazing Pear Pudding Cake.
Their menu changes regularly, but some of my favorite dishes include the Cacio e Pepe, Agnolotti with braised beef cheek, fonduta, and bordelaise, and the Pan Seared Halibut. The side dishes are large enough to share amongst a few people and you can’t go wrong with any of the Crudo starters or the meat & cheese appetizers.
On Sundays, they offer a brunch menu that will top your list of one of the best brunches you’ve ever had. They offer a lot of their regular dinner menu items as an option for brunch, but also have dishes like Eggs in Purgatory, Dutch Baby, and Prosciutto Cotto & Eggs.
Guests are invited to stop by after work or arrive before dinner for a drink at the spacious bar. Enjoy a specialty cocktail, or have a glass or bottle from the hand-picked beer and wine list.
Whether you’re planning to enjoy time with family, dinner with friends or a private event, there’s a table for you at St. Cecilia.
