F&B Atlanta invites Atlantans to savor the flavors of the season with Executive chef Christopher McCord’s new summer menu. Located in Buckhead below the Ritz Carlton Residency, F&B offers French and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine in an approachable atmosphere. McCord whimsically incorporates some of the highest quality and freshest ingredients made available in his seasonally inspired culinary creations. The lunch menu is light and refreshing, uniting timely garden staples and summer’s favorite fare. Start with F&B’s seasonal snacks such as spring pea hummus, candy-stripe beet chips sprinkled with vinegar salt, salmon dip with crispy waffle chips and merguez sliders with cucumber slaw and harissa yogurt. McCord’s skilled French technique shines in his artfully prepared salads and sandwiches, such as crispy duck leg salad with arugula, almond, dried strawberry and a cabernet gastrique; and a delicately constructed duck sandwich filled with duck pate, mousse and house-made mustard. For a main course, enjoy the arctic char decorated with farro, asparagus salad, pine nuts, mint and a grapefruit béarnaise. A decadent dinner selection showcases a modern twist on French cuisine favorites, such as the charcuterie plate filled with duck pate, mousse and sausage, house-made pickles and port-pear mustard. The rose snapper entrée offers lighter notes, prepared with fish fume, bok choy, beech mushroom and daikon. Bar manager Randy Kuder has developed a seasonal craft cocktail menu that pairs seamlessly with McCords creations. Sip on the lavender gin collins with lavender- infused gin, house-made sour, egg white, lemon grass and mint, or the flying legends and hidden mayhem featuring champagne, St. Germain, pink grapefruit segments, Bittermen’s hopped grapefruit bitters, Saint Louis sugar cube and grapefruit tab.
