The 38 Essential Atlanta Restaurants, October '11

View as Map

Introducing the Atlanta Eater 38, your answer and ours to any question that begins, "Can you recommend a restaurant...?" This elite group covers the entire city, spans myriad cuisines, and collectively satisfies all of your restaurant needs, save for those occasions when you absolutely must spend half a paycheck (i.e. no fine dining). Every couple of months, we'll be updating the list with pertinent restaurants that were omitted, have newly become eligible (restaurants must be open at least six months), or have stepped up their game. And so, without further ado (and in no particular order), we present the Atlanta Eater 38.

For those of you readying the pitchforks because your favorite restaurant isn't on the list, wouldn't it just be more productive to nominate it for inclusion? State your cases for (or against) restaurants in the comments or via the tipline.
