The Eater 38 is a curated list of restaurants covering Atlanta and its metropolitan area — both inside and outside the perimeter — spanning myriad cuisines and price points. It’s meant to help navigate Atlanta’s sprawling restaurant scene, while also answering the question, “Can you recommend a restaurant?”
With fall’s arrival, the Eater 38 has been updated for the fourth time in 2023 to include longtime Atlanta staples, restaurants with loyal followings, and those really bringing something special to the food scene right now. The restaurants listed below have been open for six months or longer and were selected to showcase the impressive diversity of Atlanta’s dining landscape. Removal from the Eater 38 does not mean a restaurant isn’t still great and won’t return in the future, but it allows for new additions, keeping the 38 a fresh, inclusive, and representative list.
For the last update of 2023, Sonya’s Southern Cuisine (closed), Auntie Vee’s Kitchen (closed), Estrellita, and Tum Pok Pok were removed to make way for Kamayan ATL, La Semilla, The BeiRut, and Flavor Rich.
