More news from La Pietra Cucina

" width=

Brad and I returned to La Pietra Cucina for lunch today and we were knocked out as usual. We split a salad made with lobster mushrooms, seldom seen on Atlanta menus.

Then Brad had grouper over creamy, diced eggplant in a tomato sauce with shrimp. I ordered the day's risotto, full of prosciutto cotto, chives and bits (and slices) of fresh figs.

There's some news about the restaurant. It will begin opening Saturday nights on Oct. 25. The restaurant's owners have also decided not to expand into the huge, adjoining space until next year.

Chef Bruce Logue says he's happy with the more intimate-sized dining room and most diners concur that the present space — actually, the private dining room of the original occupant, MidCity Cuisine — is just right.

Nonetheless, Logue says he is deliberating whether to open a small Italian steakhouse on the left-hand side of the space. That would be a definite first for our city.
