656 N. Highland Ave., Atlanta, GA 30306, United States

A native of Puerto Rico and former contestant on Bravo’s Top Chef, Hector Santiago delights adventurous diners with authentic Latin American and Spanish cuisine at this tapas restaurant in Poncey-Highland. A lively dining room with bright orange walls, colorful local art, and a central communal table is an appropriate setting for Santiago’s bold small plates. Favorites include the charred mushrooms in chipotle garlic butter and the steamed coconut buns with smoked pork belly, tamarind sauce, cabbage, and pickled chiles. Twice a month, Pura Vida hosts Tango Thursdays, and patrons are encouraged to join in during the Argentinean dance performances.
