As of this Friday, there will be a new place to enjoy a taco on the Eastside Beltline, with a margarita sono to follow.
Margarita bar Guac y Margy’s is set to make its debut with its food menu at 7 p.m. in the Studioplex development, according to its Facebook page:
Co-owner David Barton said he expects Guac y Margy’s to get its liquor license next month.
The spot will keep simple during the week with a menu offering nine different margaritas including the Premium AF made with Don Julio Reposado, Gran Marnier, Cointreau, lime, agave, cilantro and salt;
cocktails including the Nobody Calls it Hotlanta Anymore made with Coke, local bourbon and peanuts; coffee;and guacamole, salsa and queso with chips.
On the weekends, the menu will expand to include tacos and brunch, with dishes such as breakfast tacos and Millenial Toast made with a baguette, olive oil, avocado, hardboiled egg, pickled onion and sea salt. Food options will change each month to “keep things fresh,” according to the spot’s website.
Guac y Margys will also offer a full bar, but the focus will be firmly on its margaritas, which co-owner Barton said will all be made with fresh lime juice and agave -- "no sour mix," he's quick to point out -- and will use seasonal ingredients for its flavors, including blueberry, pineapple and strawberry.
Barton, who has a background in marketing, is opening the bar with friends Troy Meyers, who has worked as a bartender and has a background in construction (he handled the buildout of the Guac y Margys space) and Sebastian Romano, who has worked as a chef and currently works at the CDC.
More Beltline development is coming soon by way of Latin restaurant Bazati and bar Estrella.
