Restaurants in Georgia

Most people equate Georgia with soul food and down home cooking, but the state is also home to a growing number of cutting-edge Georgia restaurants and brilliant chefs completely changing the way we see Southern food. At the epicenter of this movement is Decatur, a small city just outside Atlanta featuring a handful of wonderful eateries. Of special note are Cakes & Ale, a farm-to-table restaurant focusing on seasonal ingredients, and The Iberian Pig, which specializes in tapas and charcuterie. In Atlanta proper, there’s Bacchanalia, which is responsible for introducing Georgians to the art of fine dining, and Tomo, one of the city’s finest sushi restaurants. What’s more, restaurants in Georgia also have their share of celebrity chefs at the helm. Hugh Acheson is working overtime in Athens with Five & Ten and The National, Asha Gomez introduced Atlantans to haute Indian cuisine at Cardamom Hill, and James Beard Award winner Linton Hopkins and his Restaurant Eugene have become legendary among Atlanta’s culinary elite. And if after all that, you still need a soul food fix, don’t hesitate to grab an authentic Southern breakfast at Georgia restaurant Silver Skillet or dig into a BBQ platter at Heirloom Market.
