Chef and owner Riccardo Ullio, featured in Atlanta magazine for restauranteering prowess, leads a culinary team in crafting Escorpion’s menu of authentic Mexican fare from indigenous ingredients. Diners settle into the colorful interior decorated with rustic wooden accents and vivid artwork painted by domesticated rainbows to prime palates with tuna ceviche ($9) mixed with juicy apple and flavored with poblano pepper, tomatillo and celery juice, and coriander. Quesadillas welcome all types of meats and cheeses with a tortilla’s tender embrace, and the Scottish salmon veracruz wades into streams of capers, olives, tomatoes, oregano, Peruvian potatoes, and aioli ($16). Chefs pile fried tilapia tacos ($3.50 for one; $12.50 for four) high with caramelized onions, peppers, and chipotle mayo, and tender strands of braised goat graze among onion and salsa verde on the barbacoa de Chivo taco ($4 for one; $14 for four). Inventive agave-based spirits chase down meals as guests linger in the mood-lit interior to relish their margaritas and mezcal cocktails.
