MAR, A New Restaurant And Tequila Tasting Room, Brings Coastal Mexico To Decatur

August 7, 2012

ATLANTA, Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — MAR, an enticing new restaurant and tequila tasting room, will be opening this fall in Decatur. Offering Atlanta fresh, simple and authentic fare from coastal Mexico, MAR is open for lunch and dinner, and will be located at 314 East Howard Avenue, 30030.

The MAR concept rose out of a desire to bring the true taste of Coastal Mexico to the United States. Created by well-known Decatur businesswoman, Michele Emmons DeHaven and international restaurateur, Humberto Bermudez, who also serves as executive chef, MAR delivers a dining experience unlike any other. And, as an extension of Bermudez’ Porto Buzios Group restaurants in Barcelona and Central Mexico, MAR offers some of the most unique seafood in Atlanta. Using only fresh ingredients, Chef Bermudez’ distinctive approach to cooking transforms dishes into a distinctive culinary delight that reinvents the traditional idea of Mexican fare.

“We are excited to be able to introduce Atlanta to a new style of cuisine from Mexico and have the opportunity, through our food, to change the standard notion of both seafood and Mexican food,” said Bermudez.

An innovative menu offers an array of flavorful dishes, which include wood roasted fish, coastal tacos and tostados, ceviche, aquachile, and oyster, lobster and crab buckets. In addition to a range of premium seafood dishes, MAR offers an extensive tequila list and coastal specialty drinks such as mojitos, margaritas and micheladas as well as diverse wine list and beers.

Modern yet rustic, MAR offers an airy, casual and relaxed environment. With an indoor dining area and outdoor patio, Atlantans of all ages can unwind, come together and enjoy a little bit of the coast in the city.
