Eater Atlanta often receives tips from readers. Day-to-day tips tend to involve the formation of new restaurants, restaurant closings, and even the odd lawsuit or where to find the best wings in town. On occasion, we receive tips from readers and members of the restaurant and bar industry regarding more serious allegations, ranging from accusations of wage theft to sexual harassment and assault. We work to substantiate and corroborate these claims or any documents provided to us before reporting allegations publicly, which includes getting credible sources on record and keeping their identities concealed if they choose to remain anonymous for a story.
