The 15 Hottest New Restaurants in Atlanta Right Now

After nearly three years of delays, Mexican restaurant and tequila bar D Boca N Boca finally opened in June. Backed by Helio Bernal of mobile kitchen the Real Mexican Vittles, the Summerhill restaurant offers a menu centered on dishes and recipes inspired by Bernal’s family in Veracruz on the Gulf Coast of Mexico and in the Yucatán. Expect everything from street tacos, pollo asado, and ceviche to aguachile from Sinaloa and Monterey and huachinango (Veracruz-style roasted red snapper) on the menu. There’s also a nod to an Atlanta sports legend, Braves baseball player Hank Aaron. The Hammerin’ Hank Chop is a spice-rubbed steak described as a “legends cut of meat” served with salsa and vegetables. The bar at D Boca N Boca carries both local and Mexican beers, along with tequila and mezcal for making margaritas, palomas, and original cocktails. Outdoor seating available.
