With a fresh revitalization of the food and bar program from chef Rishi Singh (formerly of Boheme Café and Wine Bar and Dry Creek Café) and bartender Jojo Martinez (who recently worked at The Nightingale Room), Batanga is now even more poised to become a lasting part of the hip, new downtown bar and restaurant scene. Intriguing flavor combinations packed into small plates make Batanga a fun place to try new things, especially with specials like Singh’s beautifully-balanced mussels dish packed with coconut water, coconut milk, chimichurri, lime and sofrito. The large, charming back patio is the perfect place to liver over tapas with friends, while live music most nights of the week and refreshingly good, knock-your-socks off cocktails will keep you coming back for more.
