Atlanta

Now Open! — Babalu Atlanta, our first restaurant in the Peach State! Located in the heart of Midtown, Babalu Atlanta will be within walking distance of great shopping, entertainment and the MARTA’S Midtown Station. Large rolling garage doors will bring the beautiful Atlanta weather inside the main dining room, where guests can enjoy hand crafted cocktails and Latin-inspired tapas while watching behind-the-scenes action in the restaurant’s large open kitchen. Guests who want to dine al fresco will love the huge covered corner patio flanked by an indoor / outdoor bar. Babalu Atlanta is the perfect spot for a quick lunch during a day of shopping or grabbing dinner and drinks during a night on the town.

DAHLIO CHEATAM

GENERAL MANAGER

HOW HE GOT INTO THE BUSINESS

While attending college, he turned to waiting tables to make money, and soon discovered he loved the day-to-day interaction with customers.

OUTSIDE OF BABALU

He and his wife and three children enjoy going to local parks, amusement parks, and spending time outdoors.

ADVICE TO UP AND COMING MANAGERS

He simply points to the Golden Rule — treat people as you would want to be treated. “We all know what we like and dislike when we visit restaurants.  Put yourself in the customers’ shoes and ask yourself, ‘What can I do to enhance their time with us?’”

WHO WILL BE OUR FIRST

FEATURED EMPLOYEE?

AS THE SAYING GOES, GOOD HELP IS HARD TO FIND…

So when we come across one of our teammates that is willing to time and time again go “above and beyond” to make guests happy… the least we can do is brag on them a little.

WANT TO KNOW WHAT SERVER OR BARTENDER TO ASK FOR?

You might just find them right here!

Whatever the occasion, Babalu Catering will ensure no one at your fiesta leaves hungry. We offer specialty tapas-style hors d’oeuvres, full service catering and custom delivery options. Let our catering manager put together a completely customized plan for your event.
