Hi friends! Luisa from Peaches to Pearls here once again to tell you about another The Shops Buckhead Atlanta restaurant. Today the spotlight goes to the phenomenal restaurant Gypsy Kitchen. This delectable restaurant draws inspiration from the culinary riches of Spain – infused with Moroccan traditions from across the Gibraltar and Indian influences that travelled west along the same seas.

Gypsy Kitchen also brings you the best of modern day Spanish cuisine, a sophisticated mix of traditional classics artfully interpreted through a contemporary lens, tracing through the eclectic regions of Spain, from the southwest coast of Andalusia to the Basque and Galician regions to the north, and then east to Catalonia.  These creations are the fruits of their labor and are the result of years of joyful research from extensive travels throughout Spain, much like gypsies on a culinary adventure.

Here are a few of my recommendations to make the most out of your visit to Gypsy Kitchen

When you first arrive kick off your evening with one of their signature drinks. Two of their most famous drinks- The Seville Rose {Vodka, Roses & Spice, Egg White, Lemon, Soda {and Leather & Silk {Gin, Chartreuse, Velvet Falernum, Lime} are crisp, fresh and easy to drink!

Next, order a few starters to go with your drinks. I highly recommend trying-tortilla espagnole, foie gras escabèche, chickpea pancakes, yellowfin tuna tartare stuffed into piquillo peppers and a charcuterie and cheese board. Although I love everything, their chickpea pancakes are my favorite. They are gluten free and are made fresh every day. Yum!

After all these amazing tapas move on to the main course. The Georges bank cod is great for all fish lovers. It comes with green onion pil pil, glazed eggplant and black garlic migas. Craving something a little different? Try their most popular dish- the seafood paella “fried rice”-which comes with clams, mussels, shrimp, peas, red pepper-chorizo salazon PLUS a fried egg on top. YUM! Both dishes are great but after one bite you will see why the fried rice is the most popular dish!

Leave room for dessert and try either their chocolate cake bar or/and their white Spanish cake. The chocolate cake has a little bit of pepper dust added to it, giving each bite a slight kick! Phenomenal!

If the weather permits, I highly recommend you sit out on the porch. Whether you are looking for a delicious restaurant to try with your significant other, or you are looking for a place to drink with your girls- Gypsy Kitchen won’t disappoint.
