More than 30 local restaurants are set to feature special dishes and menus showcasing a wide range of Latin American traditional cooking techniques during Latin Restaurant Weeks, running Nov. 4 - Nov. 18 all over Atlanta. “Participants will highlight menu selections that represent their fare’s authenticity and culture,” says spokesperson Kelly Taylor. In partnership with Grubhub and Feed the Soul Foundation, the goal of the two-week event is to “drive awareness to Atlanta-based Latin chefs, restaurant owners, caterers, and bartenders while spotlighting the diversity of Latin flavors offered throughout the city.”

Featured cuisines include Venezuelan gastronomy at Arepita Cafe and Mango Latino Grill, savory dishes from the Dominican Republic at Mamajuana Restaurant & Lounge, and robust Mexican fare at El Taco Veloz. “Our platform showcases varying Latin countries in addition to the distinct regions within those territories while highlighting the complexities of their cuisine,” co-founder Karinn Andréa Chavarria says. ‘El Tour de Sabor’ “provides a path for Atlantans to discover a hidden gem or visit their favorite restaurant, coffee shop, food truck, bakery, and caterer.” Details:
