Omnivore - AJC Spring Dining Guide hits the streets

The folks over at the AJC let us know their picks for spring dining.

The AJC Spring Dining Guide came out today. There are a ton of lists of don't-miss places from writers Jenny Turknett, Gene Lee and Jon Watson. And John Kessler reviews both Restaurant Eugene and Bacchanalia.

The scandal of the day, if scandal is something we can seriously attach to restaurant criticism, is that neither of these restaurants received 5 stars from Kessler. He even wrote a separate note about why neither restaurant attained the 5-star rating. It's an interesting idea, that there might be no such thing in Atlanta as a 5-star restaurant right now.

Interestingly, the commenters over there seem more outraged that Eugene didn't get a lower rating.
