A newer addition to Atlanta’s booming restaurant scene, The Optimist has built a reputation around its dazzling seafood menu and glitzy-meets-industrial design. Chef-owner Ford Fry, the man behind nearby JCT Kitchen & Bar and No. 246 in Decatur, Georgia, is sharing his love for sustainable seafood, bringing landlocked Atlantans the freshest fish around. The menu’s beach food classics include peel-and-eat Georgia shrimp, fried clam rolls and charred octopus with spiced Greek yogurt. There’s also a killer line up of wood-hearth roasted fish (think duck-fat poached swordfish or a garlic-and-ginger infused crispy whole black fish).
