Ten Restaurants that Best Define Atlanta

View as Map

Earlier this month, readers let us know what restaurant best defines Atlanta. We pared down the results that came in via email, Facebook, and Twitter and came up with the ten places that y'all think capture what Atlanta truly has to offer. The list has everything from frosted oranges and fried catfish to kimchi grits and hot chicken oysters, so check out the map below to find out where to go when you’re craving a bite from the big A that isn’t smothered, covered, and peppered. Did something get left out? Send thoughts and comments our way in the comments or through the tipline.
