The Atlanta-focused episode of Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre Foods America aired Monday night on Travel Channel. About Atlanta, the television host says:
This is a city full of surprises. A proud capital of the Old South, celebrating regional traditions. It's multicultural and cosmopolitan. There's urban sophistication taking pride in its rural heritage. It's Atlanta, GA, where people are doing creative things with food you have to see to believe.Zimmern continues, "Atlanta's best-kept secret is its burgeoning diversity. That diversity is the reason the new Southern cooking in this part of the country is so vibrant and rich." Restaurateur/Top Chef judge Hugh Acheson joins him to pick out restaurants that "define the change in this part of Georgia." The show will re-air next Monday, May 26, at 8 p.m. See a full list of the featured local spots with quotes below, and do leave your thoughts on the episode or the chosen places in the comments.
