Eater Atlanta is a local news and service site based in the city of Atlanta reporting on restaurants and bars, dining and dining trends, food pop-ups and food trucks, and the business of restaurants throughout Atlanta and metro Atlanta. It is part of the Eater network and under the Vox Media umbrella, based out of New York City.
Eater Atlanta accepts pitches on the following: food/dining explainers; dining/cuisine maps; in-depth dining/cuisine guides; food crawls; reported restaurant/chef/local food industry features; and photography and illustrated stories featuring local restaurants and dining.
The site does not accept pitches on recipes, food holidays, grocery products, or conduct local restaurant reviews. While Eater Atlanta does occasionally accept local restaurant and dining-driven opinion pieces and first-person narratives, those pitches must come with a strong voice, fact-based conclusions, and/or direct personal experience.
Here are a few examples of what Eater Atlanta covers:
- Where to Eat in Stone Mountain
