First time in Atlanta

jsa056 | Feb 25, 2011 12:18 AM

Hey everyone,

I'm traveling to Atlanta for the first time in June and I was hoping to get some feedback/suggestions on can't be missed restaurants.

I'll only be in town for 3 or 4 days, so I'm looking for anything I shouldn't miss, whether it's a $200 tasting menu or a $3 hot dog. I'll eat just about anything so suggest away.

This is what I'm currently planning on - let me know what you think.


Quinones @ Bacchanalia OR Bacchanalia - The food lover in me screams for me to go to Quinones... but I don't want to miss the vaunted blue crab fritter either. Which would you recommend? Or is it so good I should think about trying both menus rather than another restaurant?

Woodfire Grill - I've read the mixed reviews, but I'm a sucker for Top Chef.

Bone's, Rathbun's... other suggestions? Completely unsure for my 3rd and 4th nights.


Flip Burger - See Woodfire above...

Antico Pizza

Star Provisions - Is this the best place for me to shop for cheese in Atlanta? I'll be staying with a friend, so I'm thinking maybe I'll buy some cheese and charcuterie for a light lunch back at her place?

Thanks in advance!
