Food Crush Friday: Escorpion


Well its Friday and I am glad about it. One of the things that I truly enjoy on a Friday night is taking myself out for a nice dinner. Well tonight won't be any different. One of my absolute favorite restaurants is Escorpion. This restaurant is apart of what is called the U Restaurant Group owned by Chef Riccardo Ullio. My plan is to visit all of them but this one is nestled right in a lively part of downtown Atlanta. You can see the restaurant from the street because adorned right on the door is a huge scorpion. Don't get frightened because its just for decoration. It's not real but I think its a great way to say they put the sting in food. Everything you eat is good and seasoned to perfection.

It is a tapas style tequila bar and restaurant. If you go there are a few things you MUST try like the "Tinga" taco which is a delectable shredded chicken marinated in spices and seasonings. You also must try the fried shrimp taco as well as the "Arrachera" which is a marinated steak taco with caramelized onions. Oh yea! I must must must try the margaritas which are divine. They have their own cocktails and special made syrups which I'm sure were created by the drink gods themselves. 

So what are you doing tonight? Hopefully the answer was going to Escorpion to try their awesome food. It is located at 800 Peachtree Street Atlanta, Ga be sure to tell them that SaVor V sent you. Have a great Friday!
