The Mr. and I recently returned to Cucina Asellina, sister restaurant to STK next door and another NY transplant, to scope out more of their menu. The scene at Cucina is much lower key than the thumping steak-and-cocktails fueled party next door. We enjoyed the patio during one of Atlanta's perfect spring nights and found it to be a perfect place to unwind and people watch. Service was friendly and knowledgeable and the crowd seemed Midtown hip, but in you-don't-have-to-get-dressed-up-for-it kind of way.
