New Midtown Hotspot Serves Authentic Spanish Cuisine in a Fun, Communal Setting
Bulla Gastrobar’s first Atlanta location, in the 12th & Midtown mixed-use development along Peachtree Street in Midtown Atlanta, opens for business on Monday, Sept. 25. Known for its fun, communal atmosphere, imaginative cocktail program and contemporary takes on traditional Spanish tapas, Bulla (pronounced “boo-ya”) is owned by Centurion Restaurant Group and has three successful South Florida locations.
“We’re very excited to bring Bulla to Atlanta,” says Centurion Restaurant Group founder and president Carlos Centurion. “This is a world-class city for food lovers, with some of the finest restaurants anywhere. We believe our emphasis on authentic, shareable Spanish cuisine in a communal setting will make Bulla a perfect addition to Atlanta’s culinary landscape.”
Bulla takes its name for the Spanish slang term for “chatter,” which neatly encapsulates the restaurant’s atmosphere. Like the famous gastrobars of Spain that inspire it, Bulla balances a fun, easygoing environment with creative cuisine that applies contemporary innovations to traditional Spanish tapas.
The menu boasts both small plates and larger signature entrées that feed two comfortably.
Highlights include paella (Valencia-style rice, seafood, red sofrito and saffron), braised short ribs (with tetilla cheese, potato foam, cipollini onions and red wine sauce) and salmón (with baby spinach, chickpeas and lemon cream). In addition to a monthly Market Menu that showcases a rotating selection of five to six unique dishes, desserts and a cocktail of the month, Bulla also offers guests a three-course tasting weekend brunch menu featuring $3 mimosas on Saturday and Sunday.
An imaginative drink menu will launch shortly after the opening and include handcrafted cocktails with syrups made from scratch, top-shelf beer and wine selections and three made-to-order sangrias – traditional, sangría blanca, and sangría de cerveza. It’s all served in an animated, expansive space with an urban loft vibe inspired by the tapas bars of Barcelona and a traditional Spanish marketplace. A large gather-around bar sits center stage, establishing a community atmosphere, and a second-floor event space beckons for parties and company dinners.
In the heart of Midtown right next to the Federal Reserve Building, Bulla is a convenient destination for exceptional cuisine. Within easy walking distance of MARTA’s Midtown station, many office buildings and popular retail and entertainment options, it’s a perfect spot for after-work drinks or a relaxing dinner with friends and loved ones.
Bulla Gastrobar is located at 60 11th Street NE in Midtown Atlanta and serves dinner daily, with brunch on Saturday and Sunday. Plentiful validated parking is available at 12th and Midtown. For more information, call 404-900-6926 or visit bullagastrobar.com.
