The stretch of North Highland Avenue that runs through Inman Park and the Old Fourth Ward has reached such redevelopment momentum that national restaurant operators are now taking notice. The owners of this splashy, Spanish-inspired concept hail from New England, where they own a handful of similar, successful restaurants.
The throngs have quickly shown up at this huge space, which features dark woods, a blinding-white marble bar, and a live fireplace that smartly capture the Spanish design sensibility. An unusual number of Tempranillo varietals and a great selection of sherries tempt while you snack on cured meats and cheeses. A few Argentine dishes, like small empanadas and a mixed grill with chimichurri sauce, lurk among Catalan specialties such as a particularly impressive potato omelet served with cooling crème fraîche.
