Wednesday, October 21st at 5:30pm

Location: Bocado

On Wednesday, October 21st, BOCADO restaurant on Atlanta’s Westside is celebrating their SIXTH anniversary! In addition to their regular menu, BOCADO will be offering the following for dinner, starting at 5:30pm:
  • Half off their much-acclaimed double-stack burger. The BOCADO favorite is served with American cheese, housemade bread & butter pickles, and fries.
  • Fernet Branca milkshakes. Made with Fernet Branca, bitters, and vanilla ice cream and topped with whipped cream, mint and a cherry. This velvety, creamy beverage is the perfect nightcap with flavors of mint, vanilla, and chocolate.
  • Bell’s Hopslam Ale. BOCADO is pouring this very limited Pacific Northwest beer with six different hop varietals and a blend of grapefruit, stone fruit, and floral notes. A generous malt bill and a solid dollop of honey provide just enough body to keep the balance in check, resulting in a remarkably drinkable rendition of the Double India Pale Ale style.
BOCADO restaurant serves contemporary, eclectic American cuisine on a rotating seasonal menu, paired with playful, classic cocktails, as well as craft beer and wine. Spanish for “bite” or “mouthful,” BOCADO was opened on Atlanta’s Westside in 2009 by restaurateur Brian Lewis. The seasonal and locally sourced menu changes frequently, with dinner featuring small, experimental plates and larger entrees, and lunch including creative sandwiches and sides. BOCADO’s much-acclaimed double-stack burger is a favorite and is served with American cheese, housemade B&B pickles, and fries. Housed in a former woodworking shop, the restaurant’s minimalist aesthetic highlights the simplicity and freshness of the food. In 2010, BOCADO was named to Atlanta Magazine’s list of “Best New Restaurants,” and in 2012, Brian was named by StarChefs as a “Rising Star Restaurateur.”
