Welcome to Ask Eater, a dining advice column from Eater Atlanta in which the editor and regular contributors answer questions from readers. Most of the questions Eater regularly receives center around where to find a specific dish, cuisine, or bottle of wine served at Atlanta restaurants, which restaurants have the best patios, and even asking for tipping advice or seeking intel on local government policies to do with bars and restaurants.
Want to know where to order a fancy takeout feast for an anniversary or set up an elaborate picnic spread? Interested in getting the recipe for a favorite dish from a restaurant or chef to recreate at home? Where or what does an Atlanta chef or bartender like to eat or drink when off the clock? Just what rules do Georgia restaurants and bars have to follow during the pandemic? No question is too simple, silly, or odd.
As Eater continues to explore the stories of how restaurants and bars are tackling the extraordinary service and financial challenges of the pandemic, this dining column gives readers a chance to weigh in on and ask specific questions about Atlanta’s restaurant scene.
Send questions to the tipline, and Eater will feature the answer to one or more questions each month, delving into the details and providing guidance. The names of people who write in with questions remain anonymous when the answer is revealed on the site.
