In the shadow of Atlanta's newest and shiniest stadium there is a community. You might not know it because it goes largely unnoticed and unmentioned when talking about Atlanta, as if the city drops off a cliff west of Northside Drive.
Often lumped in with Downtown or completely forgotten, members of the historic westside neighborhoods West End, Castleberry Hill, Vine City,...
For me, listening to someone talk about something they are passionate about is enthralling, but getting a chance to watch them do it step by step is inspiring. In the 2015 Food Issue we found a few people in Atlanta who were really good at what they do.
