Bruce Logue: BoccaLupo

When I started blogging in early 2007, Chef Bruce Logue’s La Pietra Cucina was the “it” restaurant. The food blogging scene was just emerging and bloggers met there (on different occasions) to meet each other for the first time. It’s also where you’ll see the who’s who in Atlanta. It became a favorite restaurant of mine, although, the price point prevented me from going there as much as I would like. It was good, however, that they have lunch service where prices were more affordable. Chef Logue has since left LPC and is now at the helm at BoccaLupo. The new digs is less formal, more casual. The prices are more affordable that it’s no longer a special occasion place like LPC.

I have a dinner group of 6-7 food-loving people who get together regularly to catch up with each other and, well, try new (and most times old) restaurants. Having a big group means having the ability to try almost the entire menu. It’s also a cheaper way to eat out and be able to try a lot of dishes. And since I don’t drink at all, I don’t have to worry about adding $20+ to my bill. Win-win!

So let me just tell you what I think about this place rather than the usual hashing out the ingredients from each item and using the monotonous 6 or so superlatives used to describe food. I love this place. Overall, I like it better than LPC. I love the cool vibe. It’s fun and not stuffy (or snobby) at all. I love the food. Everything is handmade from scratch by Chef Bruce including the desserts (except for the Gelato). Everything I ate was delicious and even better than LPC. I love the prices. It’s a true neighborhood joint where you can hang out and go several times a month without having to go bankrupt. You just really have to go!

Now for the spread…

BoccaLupo (Inman Park)

One of the chef’s signature items is this plank with assorted cured meats and a pineapple mostarda that is so amazing. It was my favorite at LPC then and it’s still my favorite now!

And now for the mains…

BoccaLupo (Inman Park)

One of the Chef Bruce’s signature dish and a longtime favorite of mine is his Black Spaghetti. The pasta is made from squid ink and is actually a common Italian dish in many Asian countries. There are pieces of Calabrese sausages and succulent red shrimp in there that really makes this dish outstanding.

Mushroom Risotto (oh so good)

    Great post. We also love BoccaLupo. We’ve gone atleast once a week since they opened. FYI, it looks like you posted a cake in the semi freddo caption. Thanks!

    Hi, Frank! Thanks for visiting the blog. At first I thought it was strawberry shortcake then I look at my other photos and though it had cake, it was indeed the semi-freddo :)

    That looks like the olive oil pound cake dessert and not the semifreddo – I just ate at this place on your recommendation!
