Omnivore - 2013 Best of Atlanta Party

We'll see you at Centennial Olympic Park this Thursday, Sept. 19.

Last week, we offered readers a chance to win tickets to CL's 2013 Best of Atlanta Party, which is going down this Thursday, Sept. 19 at Centennial Olympic Park. The task? Make a case for the best restaurant in Atlanta in 10 words or less.

Here are a few of our favorite responses:

No Mas Cantina Atlanta...the FRESHEST, most Flavorful adventure in my mouth so far.
- Shannon

BoccaLupo: worth my paycheck; sorry Whole Foods.
- Hilly

Hibachi Buffet - Damn...that thing still has eyes! More soup!
- oydave

Alas, only two could prevail, and we happen to be suckers for haiku and dollar beer.

The Gorgeous JR and Gregg Van Laningham, you win! We'll be in touch.

Soulful Southern food,
never ever overpriced,
flavor overdose.
- The Gorgeous JR
