Treasures of the Peruvian coast in Poncey-Highland, Southern-Asian fusion on the BeltLine, and coastal Mexican in Summerhill
More than three years after it was first announced, the brick-and-mortar version of the Real Mexican Vittles pop-up, D Boca N Boca, opens in Summerhill on June 17.
Its opening imminent, D Boca N Boca was named one of Atlanta magazine’s most anticipated restaurants of the year—specifically, the year 2020. Inspired by owner Helio Bernal’s family ties to Veracruz and the Yucatan peninsula, D Boca was set to start serving Mexican cuisine in Summerhill in May 2020. That turned out to be an inauspicious time. But even in nonpandemic eras, restaurant openings are often beset by delays that can stretch into months, even years.
Chef Helio Bernal started the Real Mexican Vittles pop-up in 2017, earning a following for his tacos and tamales served at festivals and breweries around town. Three years later, he’s expanding his reach with a brick-and-mortar restaurant called D Boca N Boca.
