It's time to update the Eater 38, your answer and ours to any question that begins, "Can you recommend a restaurant?" This highly elite group covers the entire city (inside the perimeter, loosely), spans myriad cuisines, and collectively satisfies all of your restaurant needs. Every couple of months, we'll be adding pertinent restaurants that were omitted, have newly become eligible (restaurants must be open at least six months), or have stepped up their game.
This time around, after much reflecting and poring over reader emails and comments, the 38 bids adieu to Bocado— nothing against the top-notch burger— as well as Honey Pig, Little Bangkok, and No. 246. New additions to the alphabetical list are BoccaLupo, Chai Pani, Gunshow, and Victory Sandwich Bar.
For those of you readying the pitchforks because your favorite restaurant isn't on the list, wouldn't it just be more productive to leave your thoughts in the comments? State your cases for (or against) restaurants below or in the tipline. And don't forget that newer restaurants can be found in the Eater Atlanta Heatmap, updated monthly.
