Anthony Bourdain’s Atlanta episode of the Layover aired on the Travel Channel on January 14, 2013. It showcased everything in ATL — which Bourdain dubbed the “new Singapore” — from the Earl in East Atlanta Village and Ponce vice den Clermont Lounge to Steven Satterfield’s award-winning Miller Union in Westside and Holeman & Finch in Buckhead, with EAV’s Octopus Bar and coffee shop Octane in between it all.
While three of the 21 restaurants Bourdain visited have closed (the Big Apple Inn, HD1, Curly’s Fried Chicken), most of them remain Atlanta staples, made even more popular by his visit to ATL. Check out what he had to say about each restaurant back in 2013.
