Estrella, a Yucatan-inspired rooftop restaurant and lounge overlooking the Beltline’s eastside trail, opened in late August, offering an airy, sophisticated mix of indoor and outdoor seating with views of the Atlanta skyline.
Located next to New Realm Brewing Co. in the Common Ground redevelopment, the ground-floor entrance is through Bazati and the Brasserie, destinations that combine shopping, dining and bar service.
Guests climb two flights of stairs to arrive at Estrella, which owner Scott Wilkins describes as “an amalgam of South Beach meets 1950s Havana meets the Yucatan.”
The menu was created by executive chef Roberto Solis of Nectar in Merida, the capital of Mexico’s Yucatan province, and features dishes using ingredients and cooking techniques commonly found there.
Chef de cuisine Cam Floyd is in charge of the kitchen at Estrella, after spending time in Merida cooking with Solis at Nectar, and learning his recipes in order to execute them in Atlanta.
Among the seasonal shareable small plates and main dishes on the menu right now, you’ll find oyster tacos, cochinita pibil spring rolls, Yucatecan pork belly with radish pico, avocado puree and corn tortillas, and traditional chayitas with tomato rustica, dzikilpak salsa and cotija.
The sparkling wines and Latin cocktails on the beverage menu are designed to complement the food and the setting, with classics such as a Hemingway daiquiri and a pisco sour joining a sangrita with reposado tequila and a hibiscus champagne punch.
And for more fun in the sun, there’s a roving gin cart, offering tableside takes on gin and tonic with choices of fresh herbs, citrus, flavored tonics and five types of gin.
