Sneak peek: Superica in Chastain Park

Diners who enjoy Atlanta restaurateur Ford Fry’s style of Tex-Mex can soon get double the pleasure when the second location of Fry’s Superica opens at 3850 Roswell Road in Chastain Park. On Monday, July 11, doors will open at the newest Superica, which makes its home in the space formerly occupied by an Outback Steakhouse.

The newest Superica is located at 3850 Roswell Road in Chastain Park.

The beverage menu will also be similar in format to the other Superica, but with minor change-ups. Look for four beers on draft and 14 in bottles, with local breweries Three Taverns, Wild Heaven and Eventide in the mix. There are also 14 by the glass wine options. The cocktail menu, developed by beverage director Lara Creasy, includes numerous tequila- and mezcal-based drinks. Highlights include the Little Havana, a frozen strawberry daiquiri dispensed from one of two frozen drink machines (the other will hold a frozen margarita), a mezcal mule garnished with a couple shakes of Mexican Tajin seasoning and cucumber, and a mezcal variation of an Old-Fashioned called the Highwayman.

Here are a few more looks at what Fry and company have in store at the new Superica:

A covered patio will offer seating for 50 diners. 
A section of the dining area will be turned into a stage for live music on Friday and Saturday evenings. Similar to Fry's Inman Park restaurant Beetlecat, a retractable projector screen that doubles as a a windowshade will show vintage movies.
