Is Atlanta's Dining Scene Overrated?

New, 11 comments

Over at National, friends of Eater were recruited to rep the best and most overrated dining cities in the country. Atlanta gets a few mentions— Eater's co-founder Ben Leventhal and Amateur Gourmet Blogger Adam Roberts are Team ATL (One Eared Stag and Cardamom Hill get special shoutouts), but here's what Matt Buchanan of Buzzfeed FWD has to say:

Atlanta, where I spent most of the past year living, I'd say is overrated in a sense— there are very, very few standout restaurants (Holeman & Finch, Eugene, Abattoir, and I have a serious soft spot for Antico), just lots of solid ones. And there's a tediousness to how much of the city's best restaurants hew so closely to the New American/New Southern gambit. Though I suppose that's true of most cities of late.
