Bulla Gastrobar – a Spanish tapas bar and restaurant – opened in Midtown Atlanta

Bulla Gastrobar’s first Atlanta location, in the 12th & Midtown mixed-use development along Peachtree Street in Midtown Atlanta, opened for business in September. Known for its atmosphere, cocktail program and contemporary takes on traditional Spanish tapas, Bulla (pronounced “boo-ya”) is owned by Centurion Restaurant Group and has three South Florida locations.

Additionally, Centurion Restaurant Group runs Pisco y Nazca at The Palms at Town & Country plaza in Kendall and Pisco y Nazca located in The Shops at Downtown Doral with plans of expanding both brands further in Florida and throughout the United States.

“We’re very excited to bring Bulla to Atlanta,” says Centurion Restaurant Group founder and president Carlos Centurion. “This is a world-class city for food lovers, with some of the finest restaurants anywhere. We believe our emphasis on authentic, shareable Spanish cuisine in a communal setting will make Bulla a perfect addition to Atlanta’s culinary landscape.”

Bulla takes its name for the Spanish slang term for “chatter,” which encapsulates the restaurant’s atmosphere. Like the famous gastrobars of Spain that inspire it, Bulla balances a fun, easygoing environment with creative cuisine that applies contemporary innovations to traditional Spanish tapas.

The menu includes both small plates and larger signature entrées. Highlights include paella (Valencia-style rice, seafood, red sofrito and saffron), braised short ribs (with tetilla cheese, potato foam, cipollini onions and red wine sauce) and salmón (with baby spinach, chickpeas and lemon cream). In addition to a monthly Market Menu that showcases a rotating selection of five to six dishes, desserts and a cocktail of the month, Bulla also offers guests a three-course tasting weekend brunch menu featuring $3 mimosas on Saturday and Sunday.

The drink menu includes handcrafted cocktails with syrups made from scratch, top-shelf beer and wine selections and three made-to-order sangrias – traditional, sangría blanca, and sangría de cerveza.

The space is an urban loft vibe inspired by the tapas bars of Barcelona and a traditional Spanish marketplace. A large gather-around bar sits center stage, establishing a community atmosphere, and there is a second-floor event space for parties and company dinners.
