Zero Love for Atlanta on Popular New Restaurants List

Andrew Thomas Lee for The Optimist

Not a single Atlanta— or even Georgia at large— eatery makes America's Most Popular New Restaurants 2012, as curated by UrbanSpoon. The list, which came out yesterday, covers the restaurants that received the most buzz on the site. There's no mention of The Optimist, which John Mariani called Esquire's best new restaurant of the year, no nod for Richard Blais and his new fine dining, Top Chef fan-flocking The Spence, nothing. Was this a gross oversight? Which of our city's restaurants should have made the cut? Leave a comment or send opinions through the tipline.
