Atlanta is definitely becoming the home of new and unforgettable places to dine. Bartaco, located on Marietta St, undeniably left a lasting impression on me. I am always looking for the new hot spots when I visit home and was so glad my friend recommended this place to grab dinner and catch up over drinks. The ambiance here is very relaxed and inviting for a nice girls out. We sat directly near the outside dining area; close enough to catch the summer breeze. Before I even placed my order, I knew I would love it solely based on the vibe the restaurant gave upon entering and taking a seat.
There’s a nice selection of food as well but not too overwhelming when it becomes too hard to choose what you want. We all know that feeling. From various tacos, rice bowls, quesadillas and salads; all of which sounded very appetizing. We ordered guacamole for the table which was amazingly fresh and tasty. I went with the duck and fried oyster tacos. Great is an understatement! I also tried their rendition of Mexican corn which was a great addition to my meal. Just enough chipotle-like mayo, cotija cheese and spices added to provide the perfect combination of flavors. If I hadn’t taken small samples of everyone else’s food, I probably would of double backed on the fried oyster taco. The oysters were cooked to perfection. Some of the girls ordered rice bowls with toppings of their choice and other taco selections. The cocktails were quite refreshing as well.
It felt like a beach should be in near sight or accessible to allow for a stroll after drinks. Upon reading the story about the restaurant, the beach and coastal vibes were mentioned in the description and this place definitely gives off those vibes. Very chilled and relaxing environment. It was perfect for our girls night out and I will definitely be back. Their upscale street food is definitely worth a try. Check out more pics below and pay them a visit if you’re in the Atlanta area.
