In tomorrow’s AJC, I have a review of Boccalupo, the new restaurant from Bruce Logue. I gave it a grade of four stars.
Logue, an Atlanta native, introduced our town to his brand of Italian-American cooking at La Pietra Cucina. Before that, he honed his skills at Mario Batali’s Babbo in New York City and spent eight months cooking his way through Italy with the country’s top chefs.
While training and sourcing contribute to Logue’s success and reputation as prince of pasta, his cooking resonates on a deeper level than can be reached by technical skill and ingredients alone. This chef cooks with an honesty like few others. You’ll taste it in the soul-settling depths of his dishes.
