Had your fill of “seasonal, locavore, tapas” mumbo jumbo?
Didn’t think so.
Precisely why small plate/sandwich concept Bocado (“mouthful” in Spanish) will satisfy your appetite. Chef Todd Ginsberg (Tap, Trois, The Dining Room) piles salads and entrees with irreverent ingredients to make Westside diners smile.
Dishes like braised veal cheek (with risotto, saffron, scallions, and Parmesan), crab fritters with apple salad, and mussels (nestled in chili, celery, and piquillo peppers) incorporate spoils from the on-site garden.
The communal table, outdoor patio, and wood-and-glass-driven layout (courtesy of local firm Ai3) keep things airy and inviting at the same time.
Good thing there’s plenty to go around.
Bocado, 887 Howell Mill Road, West Midtown (404-815-1399 or bocadoatlanta.com).
