Eastside Beltline dining spot Bully Boy has reopened after being closed for more than a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 100-seat restaurant initially opened in late 2019 at 828 Ralph McGill Blvd., adjacent to Two Urban Licks, a fellow Concentrics Restaurants eatery.

The new iteration of Bully Boy features a Japanese kaiseki-inspired menu of shareable plates, entrees and vegan options from Executive Chef Colby Cooper. Dishes include oysters, hamachi kama, grilled octopus and house-made silken tofu. Beverage offerings include a selection of sake, cocktails with Asian components, craft beer and wine.

Bully Boy is open 5-10 p.m. Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays and 5-11 p.m. Fridays-Saturdays.

Lucy’s Market is slated to open a second Buckhead location this December at 3200 Howell Mill Road, in the Corso Atlanta senior living community. The 500-square-foot shop will be open for residents and their guests, and will offer gift items, provisions, linens, barware, serving pieces, seasonal items, games and pet accessories.

Located on the seventh floor of the hotel, Bar Peri offers wine, local beer, craft cocktails and a tapas-style menu, with small plates.

The bar, which seats 40 outside and 60 inside, is open 5 p.m.-midnight Wednesdays-Saturdays and 1-8 p.m. Sundays.
