Two of Choate’s recently completed projects, Ink & Elm and St. Cecilia, ranked in the Zagat guide’s Atlanta’s Ten Hottest New Restaurants. Congratulations to both of these amazing restaurants!
St. Cecilia is a unique restaurant space in the Pinnacle Building in the bustling Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta that caters to the financial organizations within the building and the many hotels nearby. Enhanced by natural light and creamy color palette, this transformation of the former Bluepointe Restaurant is another smashing concept from Ford Fry. Brian Bollins, our resident restaurant guru and Project Executive of the Hospitality/Restaurant group suggests getting the seafood broil, which “is absolutely outstanding.”
Located in Druid Hills, the dark and cozy Ink & Elm is a tavern, lounge, and dining room which includes a fireplace clad in concrete landscaping pavers, wood floors, felt lined walls, and heavy duty sheet vinyl floors in the kitchen and bar. Interested in a great drink? Brian suggests sidling up to the bar for a bourbon at the tavern. “Make sure you ask the bartender for a recommendation.”
