Atlanta Magazine catches up with Bruce Logue on life after La Pietra Cucina. Logue's new venture, BoccaLuppo, will be an Italian-American restaurant with a lower price point than diners came to expect at La Pietra Cucina. One extra cool feature is the pasta bar, which will be the heart of the restaurant. It is an open kitchen similar to a sushi bar, but with live-action pasta making. BoccaLuppo will open by the end of the year.

Nothing says summer like popsicles and booze! Kill two birds with one stone when you partake in Corner Tavern's new King of Pops collaboration: "Poptails." Flavors include Strawberry Margarita, Loaded Arnold Palmer, The Bourbon Cowboy (a Corner Tavern specialty cocktail) and for the DD, classic Chocolate Sea Salt. Pops debut on April 20.

Tomorrow's News Today reports on a pizza feud of epic proportions. Apparently, Antico has filed an intellectual property lawsuit against Fuoco di Napoli. TNT mentions that Lori McDowell is named as a defendant, and the name was familiar to me. McDowell and her family were actually the team behind the Antico Express truck, but now they are running the very similar Fuoco. Perhaps this is why Antico is a bit steamed? Not only did the pizza food truck owner open a similar shop, but she took Antico's bad-boy chef with her.

A new restaurant called The Corner Taqueria is prepping for opening day in the Smyrna/Vinings area. They'll serve all the Mexican essentials - a la carte tacos, homemade salsas, fresh margaritas, and more than 40 tequilas. The restaurant will be located on Atlanta Road in the same center as Zucca Pizzeria.

Cakes and Ale launches Sunday brunch this weekend! Menu items include Dutch pancakes with fresh berries, creme fraiche and powdered sugar, and pressed ham, turkey & gruyère on brioche with powdered sugar and raspberry preserves. Brunch it up on their patio.

Baraonda has debuted a late-night menu with bar bites and specialty cocktails. The menu, targeted to the post-theater crowd, is available Thursday - Saturday beginning at 10:30 p.m.

Cheyenne Grill has re-branded as Whitehall Tavern. They've got a new look, new games include skeeball and Pac-Man, and a dog-friendly patio. There is also a new menu, but it's still your typical sports bar fare.

Remember when we told you to vote Sublime for America's best bakery? Well, give yourself a pat on the back because they won! The contest was put on by Bake Magazine, and the doughnut shop will be featured in the May issue.

Meat and Potato Kitchen and Bar will open in late spring on State Bridge Road in John's Creek, led by executive chef James Brochu.
