Discover the Best New Restaurants in Atlanta

The capital of Georgia has so much going on that many residents refer to it as the Capital of the Southeast. The last few years really put this city on the cultural, entertainment and foodie maps! Locals recently celebrated the opening of both the National Center for Civil and Human Rights and the College Football Hall of Fame as well as two sprawling food halls. They also have a modern streetcar system motoring through downtown. The new pedestrian trail, the BeltLine, transformed 22 miles of abandoned railroad corridors into a network of parks and trails. The Food Frenzy stands out as another reason for people to flock from all over. If you'd like to know where to dine while in town, take a look at our Tastemaker 20 List of the best new restaurants Atlanta has to offer.
