A Culinary Paradise

Atlanta is much more than Southern comfort cuisine. From the ethnic delights of Buford Highway to some of the best farm-to-table restaurants in the nation, the Atlanta food scene has racked up accolades from coast to coast.

Looking for something out of the ordinary? You don't have to look far.

Atlanta’s culinary identity is blossoming right before our eyes. The scene is a trifecta of sustainability, diversity and innovation, yielding a unique culinary experience that pleases virtually any palate. With 15 James Beard semifinalists in 2017, Atlanta is a national contender in the food and beverage industry.

Food
Farmer’s Markets are popping up all over Atlanta.

In 2017, Zagat named Atlanta one of the "most exciting" food cities in the country. In this Southern capital, farm-to-table isn’t a trend — it’s a way of life. Our farms inspire our food, and our food inspires our farms. From fine dining and food trucks to mom-and-pop favorites, local and sustainable ingredients are the focal point of menus throughout the region.

Atlanta chefs specialize in, well, everything. Our city is a melting pot of cuisine, and a simple drive down Buford Highway shows it. Craving Asian? Check out Umi in Buckhead. Seafood? Perhaps The Federal, a recent James Beard nominee for Best New Restaurant, will fit your fancy.

In Atlanta, your location doesn’t matter — the foodie scene reaches every corner of our great city. Ford Fry extended his dynasty with The El Felix, just one of many delectable restaurants at the Avalon in Alpharetta and The Battery in Marietta. Serenbe, a sustainable community just south of the city, features restaurants that bring new meaning to “farm fresh”, as does The Butcher The Baker in Marietta Square. Produce not your thing? Patak Meats in Austell should do the trick.

Food
From the suburbs to the city, farm-to-table dining is flourishing in Atlanta.

You can’t talk about foodie life in Atlanta without celebrating the city’s roots. It has stayed true to its origins by innovating classic Southern fare. Whether it’s dressed-up comfort food or a fusion blend, tastes of the South still influence the city’s culinary scene. And if you can’t find it in the food, you’re sure to find it in the Southern hospitality of every establishment.

So whether you’re here to visit or here to stay, join us for a meal — it’s sure to be a good one.
