The soft dusk air held promises of woodsmoke and swimsuits, and the old trees turned colors like they always did. The nearby Beltline flowed with slow joggers, handholding lovers, frustrated cyclists, dogs and kids running here and there. And at the Beetlecat oysterette, docked and open for business, you could hear the giddy laughter and practically taste the good things, the kind that filled hearts and made the night whole.
Dive into 2020 with a four-course, prix fixe menu from executive chef Andrew Isabella followed by a late night party in The Den! Start the evening upstairs with a selection of good luck soup shooters or hama hama oysters, followed by cauliflower tart, octopus, classic shrimp cocktail or beef carpaccio. Entrees include butternut squash lasagna, halibut T-bone, 72-hour short rib or a lobster roll with a sweet ending of black and white brownie and banana cheesecake. $70 per person. The night doesn’t end there! Head down to The Den for a late night party from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., complete a fully stocked bar and DJ spinning. To-go boxes of assorted donuts by the dozen will be available at the end of the night for $24, as well as whole coconut pies for $25 and to-go good luck soup (pint, $10; quart, $19).

AL FRESCO DINING
Double the patios, double the fun! The upstairs patio gets full sun in the afternoon—great for folks who love the sun. And the downstairs patio is in the shade, so even as we approach Atlanta’s blistering summer afternoons, you can sit outside and not have to bake.
“Esteban! Esteban! Esteban!”
