Surprise Surprise, Eros Erased, Now IXTLAN

Just in case you were one of the few who experienced good service and enjoyed the food and atmosphere, we here at Repeat Atlanta are truly sorry, as Eros Tapas Bar has closed. Open a little less than a year, a search on Google for "Eros Atlanta" would result in you finding escort services rather than the eatery. Having been in a couple times, we were never impressed and actually witnessed a man receiving fellatio from a woman in the men's restroom (holding ones bladder became an easier feat thereafter). What was originally Trust Company Bank and later Bob Amick's Piebar, the space just doesn't seem to have the parking or capacity to be what its recent owners need it to be to stay in business. IXTLAN Ultra Lounge, with new owners, management and a new menu, will have their work cut out for them. Our first recommendation, hire a new webmaster, and an editor. The following appears to be their mission statement of sorts:

"IXTLAN A Place of Dreams and Relaxation, Once you step out and cross the bridge “We are now Building a Relationship”, Come in an enjoy the food and the outside patio under a calming and you are about to have a memoir that you'll smile about the next day. The atmosphere is breathtaking, relaxing, and put you in a different type of vibe, the music offers something for everyone, and the decor of the Restaurant/Lounge won't let you forget you are in a Place of Dreams."

Judging from IXTLAN's website, we don't see this concept lasting much longer than its predecessor. Repeat Atlanta!

Ok that wins the award for most boring menu in recent openings. Wow. "Garnished with bacon bits" seriously?

Gotta love their private message on the public website...

"Please remove Bart and George information from the website
and under the location section remove Fishmonger’s information."

Nicely done fellas

"Fresh goat cheese coated in seasoned breading fried and severed with labash". Severed?

Think I'll give this place a miss.

I mean, I wish them all the luck, really. It just does not appeal to me at all.

LMAO! Check out the Photo Gallery.

Atlanta needs another march by Sherman, this time headed in the other direction. These NYC/LA wannabe's need to head back from whence they soiled their own nests.

If done correctly with the right concept and right marketing, this spot really could be neat.

Never a good idea to name a restaurant something that people will have a hard time Googling.

Why is the website for Ixtlan still erostapas.com? Sounds to me like it's the same owners trying to switch things up....hmmm
