Food & Drink

Function at the Junction

Last night, you dreamed of real food for once. No muss. No fuss. No swilly au jus or braised sorbet popcorn lollipops.

(Mind if we pause to suggest indigestion as an explanation for your gourmet delusions?)

But maybe it’s not all fancy (or heartburn). At least not at JCT, which opens tomorrow at the train-tracked junction of Howell Mill and Huff.

Chef Ford Fry (formerly of Eatzi’s) will keep his menu on course with farmstead-meets-French concepts (like bacon-wrapped meatloaf) and Southern sides (corn, butter beans, field peas).

If all goes according to plan, the only distractions will be good ones: the rooftop terrace (serving mixed drinks and small plates of mini grilled cheeses and oysters on the half shell) and the open wood and glass vibe.

It’s the sort of spot that keeps things simple but still satisfies the senses.

And your dreams, as well.

JCT, 1198 Howell Mill Road, West Midtown (404-355-2252 or jctkitchen.com).
