We got to take a look inside and sample the wares of the latest endeavor of Skinny McCabe and Jeff Johnson, Atomic Tiki
at 1545 Overton Park.
Are Tiki lounges making a comeback? There's something about the relaxed hula-ing vibe that feels out of step right now.
In any case, the menu makes good on the smokiness and spices of cuisine. Currently on the menu are lobster roll, Island BBQ nachos, meatballs, sliders, queso dip, and smoked wings.
Much of menu can be made vegan with the substitution of tofu.
If you happen to stop by the Atomic Tiki, be sure and get a Spiced Milk Punch, a delicious and creamy concoction of rum, vanilla, half and half, and nutmeg.
Also good is the Schifani's eyes made with Old Dominick toddy, pineapple juice, and angostura.
Jeff has had the space quite a while and had been running pop-ups. The lack of control of the situation began to wear, so he partnered with McCabe.
The Atomic Tiki is set to open early next year.
