Fire. Flavor. Color.
When three top food critics were tasked with researching the top 50 restaurants in Atlanta, they ended up with 75. They could not whittle it down any further. That tells you something — our food scene has matured big time.
Atlanta has long been overlooked and underappreciated as a culinary destination. This occurs despite many national media articles raving about the food scene and the best places to eat in Atlanta, including everything from The Wall Street Journal’s top three burgers in the nation to Bon Appetit’s best new restaurant in the country.
Simply put, Atlanta is a foodie city that does not rely on outside validation but continues to innovate and thrive. Locals support the culinary community and, even in the midst of a pandemic, they’re keeping a majority of our restaurants open. Here’s a guide to whet your appetite and to what you’ve been missing.
Taste the difference. Atlanta’s food scene is like no other.
