“a classic seafood experience to landlocked Atlantans”
Ford Fry’s The Optimist brings a classic seafood experience to landlocked Atlantans. From Maine sea scallops and whole-roasted Georgia trout to garlicky clams and fresh oysters flown in from the East and West coasts, executive chef Adam Evans serves high-quality and sustainable seafood from the country’s best suppliers. An extensive selection of beer, wine, and handcrafted cocktails pair with hickory-roasted fish and raw oysters alike. Beach-food classics like hush puppies and lobster rolls will transport you to your favorite spot along the coast, and the dining room’s custom woodwork and nautical touches preserve the integrity of the ham-aging house the building once was.
LOVE LOVE the atmosphere. Nice. hipster (wooden, cool lights, etc). People were really enjoying life and hte area was loud. Wait staff was great-- attentive, friendly, professional. Come here if you're trying to enjoy your night, not if you're looking for a quiet conversation.
Food to try:
- Frothy She Crab soup (app)
- Duck Fat Poached swordfish (main)
- Chocolate Creme Brûlée with oreo topping (dessert)
Holy Holy. Give it a go. Great bar too. and it's open for lunch!
