Creative Loafing critic Jennifer Zyman reviews Little Bacch, Anne Quatrano's tiny Westside Provisions District restaurant, and awards an "excellent" rating of four out of five stars. Zyman says it could be the way forward for upscale dining in Atlanta:
Although the admission is pricey, Little Bacch proves that Quatrano knows how to stay relevant and evolve. Servers in crisp white jackets move with grace and reverence for the dining experience — a hallmark of Quatrano's service vision. Even though the experience is more relaxed than its predecessor, Little Bacch manages to still feel special, without pretension. This restaurant gives me hope that Atlanta could be entering a new phase of fine dining, one where decadence can be lighter and less pretentious, a phase where every bite is worth the cost.
