Bocado - 50 Best Restaurants - Features - Atlanta Magazine
 

Bocado


Opening chef Todd Ginsberg left to launch the General Muir, a Jewish-style deli in the new Emory Point complex, and Adam Waller has stepped in to fill the role. Waller was chef de cuisine at Sotto Sotto and, most recently, at Buckhead’s STG Trattoria, Bocado’s sister restaurant. Fans of the squishy, melty double burger, don’t fear: It’s not going anywhere. Waller has flexed his creativity in the small-plates section of the dinner menu, where he shows off an especially playful streak with grains in dishes like quinoa tossed with Sea Island peas, avocado, radish, cucumber, and lime crème fraîche, as well as inky forbidden rice with roasted butternut squash and Brazil nut pesto. Don’t miss rising-star bartender David Durnell’s racy cocktails, like the Smoked Mule: tequila and smoky mezcal balanced by lime, fresh ginger, grapefruit bitters, and ginger beer.

    I had lunch there and it was an ugh. Hot ham and cheese was cold, shaved ham (cheep) and a trace of cheese. Not my idea of a top restaurant. Won't go back!

      @Lindy I'm no expert, but it sounds like you should have tried the burger. Also, why are you writing a bird noise after the shaved ham. I don't get it.

    I went for lunch a couple of months ago and their fryer was working; not my idea of top 20 material.

    Very helpful info. After going through this post I think it's worth a visit, as I still didn't get myself to this restaurant. But I will, for sure in a couple of days. Thanks for writing this post and suggesting to us.
