Bulla Gastrobar, the Miami-based tapas restaurant that first announced an Atlanta location in June 2016, will officially open in August, according to a Friday announcement. It’s moving into the 12th & Midtown apartment tower at 60 11th Street NE.
Bulla (pronounced “boo-ya”) is Spanish-inspired and will serve a menu of tapas and larger, shareable plates such as paella and Iberian pork tenderloin. Beverages will include craft cocktails, of course, along with “top-shelf” beer and wine selections.
The restaurant’s dining room will be centered around a large bar, and design is European and industrially inspired. Bulla will take up 1,500 square feet over two floors, and it will boast a large patio and outdoor bar. The whole thing is meant to be reminiscent of a Spanish marketplace.
“Bulla, to me, is a celebration of the best things about Spanish culture and dining,” Carlos Centurion, founder of Bulla parent company Centurion Restaurant Group, said in a prepared statement. “We provide excellent food and service, but more than that, we give our guests an exceptional dining experience — one that is casual and relaxed but also tasteful and elegant.”
This is Bulla’s fourth location and first outside the state of Florida, following restaurants in Coral Gables, Doral, and Winter Park. Lunch and dinner will be served daily, and brunch will be available on Saturday and Sunday.
Correction: Bulla Gastrobar has not set an official opening date, as previously reported.
