Crown Chef Ford Fry marvelously mischievous. King + Duke, his new Buckhead outpost opens Monday, May 13. Turns out Mark Twain's "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" inspired the naming of this fun and welcoming restaurant resplendent in classic American themes and bold, wood-fired cooking on a 24-foot open hearth. With Executive Chef Joe Schafer at the helm, slower cooking methods, woodsy smokiness and locally sourced ingredients come together at the hearth. Pastry Chef Chrysta Poulos' desserts can be paired with wine or cocktails. Top mixologist Lara Creasy runs with Fry's American history and literature inspirations in the beverage program that includes 35 wines by the glass and a "library" of more than 200 selections from around the world, including our original 13 colonies. Coffee roasted by Counter Culture in North Carolina fills cups. Located at 3060 Peachtree Road, King + Duke serves dinner nightly and lunch on weekdays, and offers a dining room, garden patio with a bar and lounge. Valet parking is available. Reservations: 404-477-3500.
