The loud, boisterous restaurant created by Drew Belline and JCT Kitchen’s Ford Fry matches creative carbs (toast, pasta, pizza) and a smartly edited list of Old World wine varietals. But the real beverage draw is the drink list created by JCT’s Lara Creasy, the alpha female of Atlanta’s cocktail world. Her concoctions share the same lighthearted sensibility as Belline’s cooking.
Drink This: Pimm’s Cup made with homemade limoncello and Cynar.
129 East Ponce de Leon Avenue, Decatur, no246.com
