The Atlanta Food & Wine Festival hits Midtown this weekend. Below, useful tips and tricks for visitors who need a break from the actual festivities. Got more intel or spot some fun hangover observations from the 2014 event? Leave a comment or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
First up, here's last year's walkable map of Midtown, the Atlanta neighborhood in which the festival's located. Food TV fans will appreciate these guides to the Atlanta-centric episodes of Anthony Bourdain's The Layover and Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre Foods, as well as local celeb Alton Brown's favorite places to eat in town.
Up late? Check out late-night dining spots and a rundown of the greasy spoons that never close. If you're in need of a pick-me-up, here's the hungover brunch map, the best hangover cure dishes, and the scoop on where to find bottomless mimosas— or, if you prefer, these Atlanta juice bars.
Also: the city's best spring cocktails, nine under-the-radar bars, some day drink-friendly patios. If a trip to nearby Athens, GA, is in the cards, we've got you covered. If not, consider checking out in-town recommendations from some of Atlanta's very best chefs and bartenders.
And, of course, Atlanta has gluten-free burgers, gluten-free pizzas, and pretty damn good vegetarian dishes in the ATL. Craving something specific? Try iconic pizzerias or one of these oyster happy hour specials. Wish we'd included something you don't see here? Leave a comment or send us a note and we'll see what we can do.
