“The Name Means Two Mouths”

“The Name Means Two Mouths”

Legacy Ventures’ very own Jeff Sime, VP of Operations and Chris Blobaum, VP of Food & Beverage were recently featured on Fox 5’s Good Day Atlanta sharing some of the most popular dishes from their newest restaurant concept, Dos Bocas.

Dos Bocas is NOW OPEN at 275 Baker Street across from the Georgia Aquarium and Centennial Olympic Park and provides a deliciously unique Cajun-Mexican dining option for downtown Atlanta residents and visitors. Inspired by the flavors from Louisiana, Texas and Mexico, Jeff Sime explains the many options to choose from on the menu.

“We have a lot to choose from but one of the things that makes us stand out, besides the fresh campechana, is our custom forged cast iron skillet. This skillet cooks all of our blackened Cajun dishes like our blackened seafood and chicken. We also have fajitas and tacos from our Tex-Mex side of the menu and our drinks are inspired by both. Some of our drinks include a Sazerac, Hurricane and our famous Road Side Cantarita.”

Later in the segment, Chef Chris Blobaum demonstrates how to make fresh Shrimp and Crab Campechana. Check out the full segment and recipe below!
