After 10 years in the San Francisco Bay area, my husband and I are moving to Atlanta this summer. We've been spoiled with the bay area's incredible variety of high/low options, every ethnic cuisine know to humankind, incredible local produce and markets. Of course, we're also THRILLED to be in the epicenter of Southern cuisine as our options here are pretty lacking since our favorite homestyle southern place closed 5 years ago.
We're no food snobs; our palates are adventurous and democratic, but we like to eat organic and local when we can and support local entrepreneurs, restaurateurs, growers, and producers. Every once in a while we splurge, and we love cheap eats, but we typically spend $15-30 for the two of us. We're not big drinkers either.
What will become our new favorites? What will replace the Ferry Building/Oxbow Market/regional farmers' markets? If I'm feeling homesick, where can I find dim sum/organ meat tacos/hole in the wall Italian/artisanal coffee?
make me drool . . .
