Named for a favorite restaurant of his youth, veteran Restauranteur Bob Amick of Concentrics brings us his latest creation, Bully Boy, an East Coast seafood concept located just a few feet from the Beltline’s Eastside Trail. It’s tucked behind their flagship concept, Two Urban Licks, and you valet at the same station. The interior is bright and feels like modern New England nautical with a giant neon sign saying “oysters” above the open kitchen.
And, indeed, seafood is the main attraction: Yellowfin tuna wraps, lobster frittes—a massive boiled lobster on the half shell with crispy shoestring fries, blue crab fried rice, Virginia oyster sliders, BBQ Georgia White Shrimp, Maine Jonah Crab rolls and duck bao (Korean soft bun sandwiches) are but a few of the extensive list of maritime vittles for which to nosedive. Executive chef Michael Bertozzi of Two Urban Licks helms the ship and delivers the seafood bounty as well as a few items from terra firma like a 60-second steak and rabbit patty melt and a massive pork shoulder feast that feeds 4. Justin Amick, Bob’s son and libation genius has curated the wine list to go with your nautical noshes.
