Chef Nancy Delgado Mathews (gone of late) transformed the always good ECLIPSE DI LUNA
into something extraordinary. The tapas are so far beyond any others in Atlanta -- in terms of authenticity and creativity -- that they set a standard. Besides dishes like simple serrano ham, you'll find a roasted lamb sandwich with mint aioli, an empanada stuffed with chorizo, coriander-encrusted scallops with roasted garlic and white-bean puree, and many vegetarian choices. Wonderful ambience and good music. (Mathews recently left due to family illnesses.)
