Named after two characters from Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, King + Duke is a modern, storybook tavern in Buckhead with Colonial-style cooking. An open, 24ft hearth anchors the restaurant, and is home to the open, wood-fueled flame. Traditional American dishes like whole-roasted chicken and a one-kilo, bone-in ribeye (it’s called “The King,” and you’ll be having it for dinner) are stars from the hearth, accompanied by modern takes on tradition like pimento cheese hushpuppies and a reimagined, coal-roasted onion soup. In keeping with the literary motif, the Southern-inspired craft cocktails reference literary classics, like plantation rum-based “On Stranger Tides” and “Drums of Autumn” with peach-infused bourbon. Dine inside, among aromas of a campfire, or on the expansive back patio, can of local brew in hand.
