The night before last, I had the extreme pleasure of wrapping up my month long birthday celebration with besties C, S and F at the Westside's always splendid, laden with Southern style JCT Kitchen. From cocktails, bar bites and live music on the rooftop bar overlooking trains below and Atlanta's ever changing sky line above, to sit down farmstead suppers in the chic earthjeweled dining room below, JCT Kitchen is without a doubt my go-to joint.
And I'd be remiss if I didn't comment on the decor of the space. Styled by Smith Hanes Design, JCT is truly the junction of sensational food and swanky design. I would be as happy as a clam moving right on in. I adore the board and batten walls, swoon for the banquettes and drool over the drum shades. All of which you will see in my soon to be completed basement gussy-up.
no. 246, with bated breath. This Italian-inspired, locally driven eatery, scheduled to open in May, is rumored to have a divine menu, shuffleboard, live music and a four-top chef's table in the plans. And I'm sure the decor will be a feast for the eyes in another way all together.
So that's my restaurant reco for the week. I hope y'all love it as much as I do.
