Super Good

By Chris Watkins | September 1, 2016 | Articles

We’ve grown accustomed to Atlanta chef and restaurateur Ford Fry opening hot spots that not only please palates but are the places to see and be seen. In 2015 alone he opened Westside’s Marcel, Inman Park’s BeetleCat, Midtown’s Bar Margot and Krog Street Market’s Superica. The latter outpost garnered so much fanfare that he’s opened outpost numero dos.

The second edition of Superica catapults Fry’s Tex-Mex cuisine to the glitz and glam of Buckhead. “Chastain Park has a great neighborhood vibe, and it’s such an active community,” says Fry. The casual and exciting atmosphere is echoed in the diner-style interiors. Like a modern roadhouse, the 200-seat dining room is outfitted with handtorched wood paneling, vintage chairs and desert-inspired hues. Live music on Friday and Saturday nights shape the vibe as the party extends to the 50-seat covered patio. Many Krog Street Market faves like hot tamales, queso fundido, Camarones Brochetas and Tacos al Carbon made the neighborhood jump, emblazoned with flavor from the custom mesquite wood-fired grill. While craft beers and South American wines complement the fiery menu, to really cool down the heat, the new outpost went ice-cold with two frozen drink machines. Buckhead exclusives in frozen format include the signature margarita and the Little Havana with platinum rum, Luxardo Maraschino, lime and strawberry puree. Buckhead is also leading the mezcal charge with several cocktails highlighting the spirit like the Mezcal Mule with spicy ginger beer, cucumber and Tajin salt. With chef-driven Tex-Mex fare, chilly cocktails and live music providing an exciting late-night party platform, Superica is one spot that keeps on giving. Bienvenidos, amigos! @supericaatl
