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.

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!”
