Restaurants in Atlanta
Atlanta’s dining scene has become eclectic and extremely popular. Restaurants in Atlanta offer everything from multi-course high-end dinners to simply tasty eateries with local grown-food. Atlanta restaurants are sure to inspire and impress. The Sweet Auburn Curb Market has specialty items that attract chefs and shoppers from all over the area. It has everything from fish to organic coffee to baked goods and houses popular restaurants: Bell Street Burrito and Grindhouse Killer Burgers. For gourmet southern fare, try Miller Union. Featured in magazines for its spin on home-style cuisine, it features everything from grit fritters to duck breast, as well as southern inspired cocktails and locally brewed beers.
Leon’s Full Service in Decatur is certainly a favorite amongst Atlanta restaurants. It offers a large cocktail menu and excellent upscale bar snacks. Their “pub frites” are fried to perfection and served with a selection of dipping sauces, including bacon herb mayonnaise and mango-peppadew ketchup. Ask any Atlanta native what their favorite burger in the city is, and Farm Burger will likely be first on the list. The joint serves up farm-raised burgers, with seasonal local indigenous ingredients like pimento cheese, pork belly, and house-made chicken sausage. Choose one of their creations or make your own burger with toppings of your choosing.
