Traditional Southern Food and So Much More

Atlanta transcends its southern fried food stereotype and has a diverse mix of globally influenced restaurants, reflecting this multicultural city. And it’s getting noticed and the recognition it deserves. CNN calls Atlanta the American South’s new foodie capital, it secured the 5th spot on Southern Living’s 2019 list (up 3 spots from its ranking in 2018) and Atlanta was named one of the most exciting food cities in the U.S. by Zagat in 2017. That same year, 15 James Beard semifinalists also hailed from Atlanta, rounding out its accolades.

This Southern capital has been referred to a culinary paradise with something for everyone. From fine dining to favorite local establishments, farm-to-table is a way of life and a constant source of inspiration. The restaurant scene focuses on sustainability, diversity and innovation to form a distinct culinary identity.
