Restaurants in Georgia

Atlanta's long-established Greek community takes pride in this chic, modern paean to its ancestral cuisine.

Down-home goodness is served from 11 a.m. sharp each day: platters of fried chicken, vegetables swathed in bacon grease, and tufts of mashed sweet potatoes.

Barbecue joints in Atlanta ain't fancy—they tend to be off the beaten path, littered with woodpiles, and somewhere between slightly and pretty scruffy. But the best of them—among them Fox Bros.—also offer some of the tastiest, messiest, diet-breakingest food in the city.

Housed within a Greek Revival mansion in the small town of Social Circle, the Blue Willow Inn is a traditional Southern, buffet-style restaurant.

The staff at this Southern-accented restaurant in Athens not only source the ingredients they cook and serve from their own Full Moon Farms, they also till the soil. That means a menu based less on chef Matt Palmerlee’s creative fancy than on what he saw in the ground that morning.

Tex-Mex Mecca

A contemporary interpretation of old-world Italian dining, Dolce Enoteca e Ristorante is designed with crystal chandeliers, large tapestries with modern prints, plush cream-colored banquettes, and black faux-snakeskin tables.
