Each year we poll our readers and food critics to determine the best restaurants in Atlanta. Our list of the very best dishes, international cuisine and best looking waitstaff are weighed to bring you only the finest list in Atlanta. We’ve been doing the Best of Atlanta since the early 1990s so don’t let these upstarts fool you with inferior lists. Balloting opens each year late summer.

Atlanta’s dining scene is amazing and overwhelming. The international influences that are present in Atlanta coupled with the comfort food of core Southern and American cuisine make a blend truly extraordinary. If you are looking for Barbecue in Atlanta, you might consider Korean cuisine? How about a great classic steakhouse? You might to try a French inspired version. Whatever cuisine you are seeking, we’ve likely sampled the goods and written about it and we’re excited to bring you the best food options available.
