Inspiration: Southern – Latin

Executive Chef: Michael Bertozzi

Oh me, oh my. I think I have a reason to continuously go visit Atlanta. I love food. But when you are able to see the passion of the food poured onto a plate..well, that’s a bite I will try over and over and over again….not to mention…the wine.

Born and raised Jacksonville native, Executive Chef Michael Bertozzi , has taken your taste buds to an entirely new level of ecstasy(wait….can I say that?!?) First he teases you with the atmosphere. Then he lures you in even more with the sounds of blues and jazz surrounding the walls. And right before he fills your stomach you are drowning in ┬áthe only wine on tap barrel wall in the United States.

His seasonal menu of various southern-latin fusion dishes will get you in a very relaxed and flavorful mood. The outside patio excites me tremendously. Who doesn’t mind eating with fresh air and beautiful people surrounding them?

With a ticket of $30-$75 per person, there’s something for everyone. Maybe you would enjoy the empanada, beautiful brisket with garlic cream and pico de gallo to start. Or the Tuna Tartare….lawwwddd, lol. And a wonderful entree of my liking is Mahi Mahi (I’m a big fish eater). The Mahi Mahi is seared with charred okra, crawfish and a delightful Old Bay butter. Now you can take my word for it, or go dive in for yourself. I am sure you will be pleased.
