Creative Loafing's annual Best Of Atlanta dropped today. Dining editor and restaurant critic Besha Rodell writes in her introduction to the "Oral Pleasures" section:

We've long known Atlanta is a dining city worthy of our love and devotion, but this year it seems as though the rest of the country realized that as well. The Atlanta Food & Wine Festival brought journalists, chefs and diners from all over the country, and the thing I heard most from those visitors was surprise and delight at the food our city has to offer. 2011 felt like a coming-out party for Atlanta's restaurant scene. We're happy to be a part of that celebration.

In other news, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has released its 2011 Fall Dining Guide. The paper's lead dining critic John Kessler rounded up the ten people - Tomohiro Naito, Ryan Smith, Marc Sublette, Paul Luna, Gerry Klaskala, Stephanie Panek, Guy Wong, Candice Reynolds, Robert Phalen, and Billy Allin - he considers "the region’s distinctive culinary voices who embody each of these issues and make Atlanta a better place to eat."
