This week my friends Natasha (Toto’s Life and Style), Alyssa (ATL Bucket List), and I had the opportunity to visit a new restaurant at the Four Seasons Atlanta, Bar Margot. Atlanta’s food scene is blowing up, and I am loving letting all of you know about the best of the best. The name made me think it was just a bar, but the food menu
is so large and varied that the bites are not to be missed! I checked out the drink menu before arriving, and knew I would be trying the Gin Margot- our server also highly recommended it, so I knew it couldn’t be a miss! It was absolutely delicious and so refreshing, a must try.
Onto the food- I noticed right off the bat that the menu consisted of fusion cuisine. Amongst classic favorites such as a cheese and charcuterie board, there were items such as crab fried rice, ricotta gnudi, and himachi crudo.
Their large menu makes it easy to appeal to any taste, and we were no exception. Their service was impeccable, the atmosphere reminded me of an urban speakeasy, and the whole experience was unforgettable. We were celebrating Alyssa hitting 20k followers, and Bar Margot surprised us with a HUGE chocolate bomb dessert! This was a customized dessert with her logo and tons of chocolate. Know before you go- you have to order this 24 hours in advance if you want to try it!
Food Faves: cheese and charcuterie board (they are working on having more options for this as we speak), himachi crudo (the flavors blended together seamlessly), and the crab toast (A few of my favorite restaurants recently have incorporated a seafood toast item into the menu, and they have all been a hit)!
Know before you go: Dress appropriately! Everyone here seemed to have come from work, therefore sporting business casual or trendy attire. The bill racks up quickly as well, so going in a group is advisable.
Anywhere they offer charcuterie and cheese, I’m there. On our plate we had serrano ham, a sausage like meat, and three different cheeses.
Recently, himachi crudo has been a huge hit for me, so I was so excited to try this. It was delicious, and the perfect type of raw fish dish to make a non believer try. They will be converted for sure!
I am not a big crab eater, but I was so excited to try this after having tried such items elsewhere before, and loving it. This ended up being my favorite item of the night!
Beef tartare with fried oysters. Never seen a dish like this, and I was really nervous trying it. My friends tried it first and said it tasted nothing like they would have imagined, and that I had to give it a shot! I was pleasantly surprised.
Scallops have been a favorite of all high end restaurants recently, and Bar Margot did not miss the mark at all! A succulent dish with so many textures made this a huge hit for us.
The crab fried rice was the most simple of the dishes we ate in terms of flavor, and felt like a good palette cleanser.
The crowning glory of the night, the chocolate bomb! They poured warm caramel on it which made the shell melt, and left us with delicious, gooey chocolate to indulge in!
