We'll leave the food to our friends at Eater Atlanta, but Smith Hanes Design and No. 246 restaurant chefs/owners Ford Fry and Drew Belline have created a classic dining space on East Ponce de Leon in Decatur. Smith Hanes worked with Fry previously on JCT Kitchen, and their collaboration on No. 246 is a riff on a similar theme. By deftly combining a muted-palette, organic textures and hardware befitting a stylish rendering plant, they continue to hone their signature clean-farmhouse chic. But no carbon copy here: the open kitchen and bright bar space are a lovely contrast to the dim coziness of JCT at dinnertime.
