In addition to having one of the most complete tequila selections in Atlanta, Oh ... Maria! serves the city's most authentic gourmet Mexican food. From the same owners as Midtown's Zocalo, Oh ... Maria! makes no concessions to the chips 'n' salsa crowd, so bring adventuresome taste buds and extra cash (it's not a cheap place). Demonstrating the possibilities of Nueva Latina cuisine, the restaurant offers intriguing dishes like the Ecstasy de Maria (a ribeye steak on a banana leaf) and the Pescado Ver-a-cruz (grilled snapper in green mole), all in a gorgeous dining room that suggests the most luxurious plaza in Mexico.
