Summertime Specials, Ford Fry Style

Summertime in Atlanta is winding down, but that doesn’t mean to the good times are over!  Check out this list of specials for Ford Fry Restaurants in Atlanta, including Happy Hour and Late Night menus!

St. Cecilia Apero Hour:
St. Cecilia is introducing a beloved ritual of the European coastline to the landlocked Atlantans of Buckhead – “apero hour.” Celebrating the cultural tradition from which St. Cecilia drew its inspiration, the newly added outdoor patio and apero hour menu is now available weekdays from 4 to 6:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 3 to 6:30 p.m.


A staple in the daily routine of coastal Europeans, apero hour, short for aperitif, highlights the cultural importance of food, wine, friends, family and relaxation. It is a time to unwind after a long day, with a spritz in hand, surrounded by great company and an assortment of snacks and aperitifs to open up the palate for a richer evening dining experience. The new menu will offer an assortment of ape fare inspired by the coastlines of Italy, Spain and France with a southern infusion, such as smoked fish arancini ($7), squash blossoms ($6), charred calamari ($8) and more, paired with refreshing libations ($5-$14) and seasonal spritzes ($5) including strawberry aperol spritz, st. germaine spritz, white port & soda, vinho rose, vin rouge.


Superica Krog’s Live Music Series:
Live music at Superica Krog Street Market continues (taking place on the first Thursday of every month) on Thursday, August 2, from  9 p.m. ‘til…this time, with chef Todd Ginsberg of General Muir joining the line-up, bringing a taste of his new BBQ joint Wood’s Chapel BBQ, set to open in late 2018. Grab one of chef Ginsberg’s mouthwatering tacos for $2 each, & enjoy at your table or outside on the patio alongside a refreshing margarita at the bar before heading inside to experience live music from Moontower’s blended sounds of classic, Southern, jam, funk, disco, blues and rock & roll.

About Ford Fry: 
As chef-owner of Atlanta’s Jct. Kitchen, No. 246, The Optimist and Oyster Bar, King + Duke, St. Cecilia, and founder of Ford Fry Restaurants, Ford’s passion is to draw people together. His culinary inspirations cover many years and much of the country: from eating out with his family as a child in Texas, to studying at the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont, to spending time as a fine-dining chef in Florida, Colorado and California—and eventually as a corporate chef in Atlanta. Though the corporate job didn’t suit him, he fell in love with the city. In 2007, Ford put down roots in Atlanta with Jct. Kitchen, a restaurant that’s as warm and friendly as its owner.

Ford shares a love for restaurants with his staff and partners. Stop by one of the restaurants, and you’ll likely find him in the kitchen or out front, working alongside his team and making his guests feel at home.
