Which 'hood reigns supreme?

As is the tradition at Eater, we're closing out the year with a survey of those who obsess over the local dining scene for a living. We've already covered best standbystop newcomers, and 2015 in one word. Now it's time to pick the best dining neighborhood.

What was the best dining neighborhood in 2015?

Ligaya Figueras, Atlanta Journal-Constitution food editor: Inman Park/Old Fourth Ward.

The Foodie Buddha: Inman Park.

Grant Goggans, Marie, Let's Eat! editor: Buford Highway's a contender every year, but in 2015, Marian Liou of the We Love BuHi initiative really did an amazing job capturing public attention in a way that none of us food hobbyists have ever completely managed. She really emphasized what a vibrant neighborhood that corridor is, and not just a gaggle of good restaurants. That said, everybody should be thrilled that Havana Sandwich Shop, probably the oldest independent restaurant on that road, has reopened its original location.

Angela Hansberger, Creative Loafing contributor: Inman Park with StaplehouseTiconderoga ClubCraft IzakayaOne Eared StagBoccaLupoO4W Pizza. ... If I cannot decide on a spot, I point my car in that direction.

Brad Kaplan, Creative Loafing contributor and Thirsty South founder: The Old Fourth Ward.

Evan Mah, Atlanta Magazine food editor: Whatever stretch of land is between Krog Street Market and Ponce City Market. Those people are the luckiest in town (or unlucky if we're talking about their rising rent levels).

Beth McKibben, Eater Atlanta contributor: For fine dining with a bit of edge, Westside with places like Cooks & SoldiersLe FatLittle Bacch, and Marcel. For a more casual vibe with damn good food, then Old Fourth/Inman is the hot spot right now.

Laura Scholz, Eater Atlanta contributor: You still can't beat Edgewood Avenue and the Old Fourth Ward.

Bob Townsend, Atlanta Journal-Constitution contributor: Decatur.
