Escorpion, the brainchild of Riccardo Ullio — the restaurateur behind U Restaurants whose portfolio includes Inman Park’s Sotto Sotto and Fritti restaurants — has finally opened his fourth attempt at a Latino-style eatery in Midtown (story here).

Taylor Vaughn, an employee at the Midtown restaurant, told What Now Atlanta over the phone they have officially opened for service as of Monday at 4:00 p.m.
