You don't normally think of a barbecue spot as a diner, but that's the vibe we're told to expect when Bone Lick BBQ opens in late July in West Midtown. Bringing you back to the simpler times of the 1950s, Bone Lick will feature a juke box, skee ball and vintage refrigerators.
Lunch and dinner will be served seven days a week; lunch will be purposely quick, served at the counter, while dinner will be more of a sit-down affair, similar to P'cheen's old Monday Night Bone Lick BBQs. The beer list will be mostly American craft and local brews; moonshine, small batch whiskey and bourbons and Georgia wines will also be available once the liquor license is acquired.
A creation of P'cheen's Mike LaSage, Keiran Neely and Alex Friedman, with investments by actor David Cross and his sister Wendy Cross (of WOW! food truck), Bone Lick BBQ will take over a 2,700-square-food space. The interior will be made of recycled wood and "other repurposed materials," according to LaSage's publicist, with the entire front wall of the restaurant comprised of windows. There will be patio seating, and a retail area highlighting Bone Lick's sauces and rubs.
