Concentrics Restaurants To Bring Coastal Fare To Poncey-Highland With Bully Boy

Chef Michael Bertozzi of Two Urban Licks is overseeing the forthcoming concept set to replace Nexto.

Bully Boy, the newest Atlanta concept from Concentrics Restaurants and Executive Chef Michael Bertozzi of Two Urban Licks, could open later this month, early November.

The restaurant, at 828 W10 Ralph McGill Blvd, replaces Nexto which closed to the public late-2017 to operate as an events space.

Chef Mihoko Obunai, a partner on the Nexto concept, has moved on to open Mihoko's Method Bone Broth in the Irwin Street Market.

At Bully Boy, Chef Bertozzi will be serving American coastal fare with "global influences," a company spokesperson in an email Wednesday told What Now Atlanta.

"Paired with innovative craft cocktails, local beers and an esoteric, yet approachable, wine program curated by Advanced Sommelier Justin Amick of Painted Hospitality, Bully Boy will be a destination restaurant located in the [Poncey-Highland] in between The Telephone Factory and Common Grounds, right down the Beltline from Ponce City Market," the spokesperson said.

The 100-seat restaurant will be open for dinner seven days a week.

“I have always wanted to use this name for a restaurant,” Bob Amick, owner and president of Concentrics, said in a prepared statement.

“It was the name of my parents’ favorite restaurant in the New York City area where I grew up and the first nice restaurant I ever ate at as a child. Chef Michael is going to be doing some really lively, smart, brash cooking with ingredients from the East Coast’s land and sea. All of us are excited to see the reaction to this Beltine spot. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

As Eater Atlanta aptly pointed out Wednesday, Bully Boy is looking to fill all open positions including bartenders, servers, hosts, and line chefs.
