Restaurateur Riccardo Ullio offers the same philosophy with this Mexican cantina the same maxim behind his successful Italian concepts – to offer guests the authentic, indigenous flavors of Mexico while incorporating the eclectic, modern vibe of Atlanta’s Midtown area. Step into this rustic Mexican cantina, and take a seat at the 360-degree copper- topped bar area lined with cow hide seating – it’s the perfect perch for just one, two – or a party. Escorpion features a taco menu with classics of al pastor, as well as antojitos (small street-inspired bites) and regionally inspired dishes such as chile relleno. For groups of four to six, try our familia plating for any taco dish.

Escorpion’s fruitful drink menu features craft cocktails and flights of tequila and mescal to enjoy while basking on the dark oak-wood patio that overlooks Atlanta’s beloved Peachtree Street.
