Cajun-Mexican restaurant to replace Legal Sea Foods in Centennial Park District
IA prominent developer in downtown Atlanta's hospitality scene is adding a Cajun and Mexican-inspired restaurant to the Centennial Park District.
Legacy Ventures said it will open Two Bocas this summer in the Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta Downtown at 275 Baker Street. It replaces Legal Sea Foods, a popular restaurant for convention-goers and tourists in downtown Atlanta, which shuttered in December after 10 years.
The menu for Two Bocas, which means "two mouths" in Spanish, includes Mexican and Cajun dishes – from enchiladas and tacos to po’boys and crawfish and shrimp etouffee. The two-story 8,000-square-foot space includes a bar, private dining areas and outdoor patio overlooking Centennial Park. ASD|SKY is designing the space.
“While running restaurants in Houston and New Orleans earlier in my career, I developed a love for the cuisine across the two states,” said Brian Bullock, chief operating officer of restaurants with Legacy Ventures, in a news release. “A few years ago, when our team at Legacy Ventures opened a restaurant on Mustang Island in South Texas, my passion for Cajun and Tex-Mex cuisine was reignited. Finally, the right opportunity came around to create a restaurant serving the food we love here in Atlanta."
