“There are more parks in this city than you can visit in a month. We boast a

restaurant scene to rival that of L.A. Ditto for music. The same multicultural energy that powers Atlanta’s mojo infuses all it touches – art, festivals, fashion, even cocktail bars. All intermingle.” - Garden & Gun


“Foodies are living it up in Atlanta right now, between a wealth of long-time Southern classics and lots of buzzy, chef-driven trendier concepts. There is a lot going on

with new chefs, but what really stand out are the two major new ‘market’ concepts, both variants on the very successful formula of places like New York’s Chelsea Market and San Francisco’s Ferry Terminal Marketplace, with multiple food stalls, many by already hot Atlanta chefs.” - Forbes


“Driven by down-home graciousness and authentically local flavors, Atlanta’s dining scene is turning the city into a national culinary destination.” - Worth Destinations 2016
