Atlanta has dining establishments for all styles and budget plans. From street food to fine dining, from tacos to filet mignon, whatever you have a hankering for you can locate it in Atlanta.
Atlanta is home to some incredibly cost-effective fine dining restaurants but, if you’re willing to shell out some cash, you can spend lavishly on a steak at Rathbun’s. Costly, but so worth it. In the mood for sushi? Atlanta has that, too. Umi’s, in Buckhead, won’t disappoint. Varying from $50 a plate to over $100 a plate, if you are feeling fancy and want your supper to match, downtown Atlanta is the spot to be.
For those foodies among us who are more interested in amazing taste combos than impressing their dates, head to Decatur and check out Cakes & Ale, a locally sourced restaurant that is sure to impress. Still expensive, but a totally brand new encounter from the tried and true steakhouse feel.
In some cases, it’s all about the experience. Gunshow, in Glenwood Park, has put a very unique spin on fine dining. There is no menu and all the waiters double as chefs. At the time of delivering their unique creations to you, you can either accept or decline and wait to see what the other chefs will provide. Not really for the person who orders the same thing every time, if you are open to discovering new tastes and textures, don’t miss this contemporary twist on dining.
Prefer ethnic food to traditional burgers? Atlanta, not shockingly, has a plethora. Head outside of the perimeter to Buford Highway and discover the hole in the wall delights that have been made TV famous. Mexican, Indian, Thai, and even Cajun joints that are delightful and easy on the wallet can be located on this long stretch of food lover paradise. El Taco Veloz, in Norcross, is a must if you love conventional Mexican food.
Like any other city in the U.S., Atlanta has more fast food restaurants than we understand what to do with. Honestly though, if you’re looking for an affordable meal, why not head to the food truck park for some flavorful dishes? Or hit up Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand for some good Southern eating.
One thing’s for certain. No matter what kind of food you are in the mood for, or how much you are wanting to shell out, Atlanta has what you are hunting for. From Buckhead to Buford Highway, beautifully seared steak to pad thai, Atlanta has you covered.
