Bruce Logue, who bewitched food lovers at Midtown's La Pietra Cucina with his housemade pastas draped in bombastic sauces, has settled into his own restaurant—a lovably eccentric bungalow on the fringe of Inman Park. His pastas again reign supreme: Dive into options like black spaghetti with sausage and shrimp; tagliatelle, golden from egg yolks, cradling the latest seasonal produce; and the spiral-shaped strano wallowing in a light Parmesan cream sauce punctuated by cubes of mortadella and roasted broccoli. Start your meal with the skewer of grilled octopus and mortadella—a study of soft-chewy textures—over shell beans and spinach scented hauntingly with Marsala. The vibe is neighborly and soulful, with a nonconformist cast of characters waiting tables.
