Breakfast & Brunch
How can you not try fried chicken when visiting Atlanta? This true local’s favorite brunch spot, provides best fried chicken in an elegant southern atmosphere, plus free fresh corn bread and biscuits with homemade whipped butter and apple jam. We prefer the original midtown location as it is in a charming historic building. Good for dinner as well.

Their Pho is our Number one comfort food, warm soup is perfect for a rainy cold day. The Bo Luc Lac (shaking beef with fried rice) is a also highly recommended - ask them for the house special salt and pepper when you order the fried rice

Verified & recommended by several of our Turkish friends, this is the best Turkish food in town. The lamb gyro and kebab are great. Their rice pudding is amazing but don’t order it because they will give you a free sample at the end of your dinner - instead save space for their dying for the coconut cake.

Truly mind blowing Ethiopian food. We recommend taking this cultural journey if you have not had Ethiopian food before and recommend their meat lovers combo with lamb, ribeye and salmon. They don’t take reservations but you can put your name in their waiting list via their website. Expect at least a half hour wait on the weekend.

This is our favorite restaurant in town. A family owned Cantonese style BBQ restaurant that has delicious food with a very affordable price. Try their roast duck, soy chicken, and dry style chow fun with beef. Located off Buford Highway in what we consider one of the best food neighborhoods in the city, it is a great stop if you also want to explore the bakeries and dessert places nearby.

We hate their service, but their food is so good that we keep on going back. An Italian restaurant in the heart of Buckhead that started as a small pasta shop, their meatball is a must try, and all their fresh made pastas are truly unbelievable. Very, very popular. Make sure you have a reservation ahead and expect to wait anyways.

Come here for the cocktails, enjoy the food as well. Poor Calvin’s has a very creative menu and their bartenders are sure to be able to recommend something to suit your taste. We like their Long Island Iced Tea (which may seem pricey until it shows up in a canteen and provides you a few rounds at once). It is super walkable to most venues in midtown (such as the Fox Theater) and is a great place to stop for a bite before an event or as a place to enjoy cocktails in a laid back environment.

Our favorite speakeasy in the Buckhead area, hidden beneath a Mexican restaurant. When we last were there they required a password so it’s worth taking a look on yelp to find out. Take a step back into the 1920s prohibition era and enjoy well made drinks and a quiet corner for a date night or night out with friends.

Dark Horse may seem like a regular bar when you first enter, but make sure you find your way to the line leading downstairs. The downstairs bar features heavy metal karaoke with a live band. The live music brings a concert-esque atmosphere and loads of fun to this dive-style bar. Be sure to get there early as this place can get packed on the weekends.

Blake’s is at the heart of the gay nightlife scene in Atlanta. Located right off Piedmont Park at the intersection of 10th and Piedmont, there is plenty of dancing and good times to be had. Their outdoor spaces really make it special as they give an escape to what can sometimes be a hot, crowded dance party inside.

A definite afternoon/early evening stop for those who love beer and the outdoors. Located at the northern end of Piedmont park Orpheus is a true local brewery that has bloomed over the last few years specializing in sour beers (think Saison). We particularly like to go there and enjoy a tasting of all their varieties while overlooking the park and watching the sun set before heading out to dinner.

Monday night probably has the best beer of any of Atlanta’s local breweries. The garage is special as it provides a taste of many of their beers they do not package/distribute. Located on the southern part of the beltline, stopping by the Garage allows you to explore a new neighborhood in Atlanta while enjoying some time outdoors.

New Realm has a great rooftop and solid bar food. We go there because it is steps away from Ponce City Market, next to one of our favorite restaurants, Two Urban Licks, and has great skyline views.

The best place to go for dessert in the city. We are partial to stopping for their crepes and enjoy the European-fusion food and the feeling of being on the streets of Paris, but most people come here for the desserts. Once you have gotten a table, go browse the array of cakes available and pick one that catches your eye. The staff are all very knowledgeable and can help explain and help you identify which one will tickle your fancy.

The Beltline is definitely Atlantarian’s favorite place, this walking path is built on top of an old rail line and connects several best neighborhoods together. The most popular section starts from Piedmont park, 10th and Monroe Dr. It will lead you to the Ponce city market in historic Old fourth ward neighborhood and ends at Krog street Market at Inman Park. The popularity of this beltline also revives the neighborhood along it, tons of restaurants, bars and retails are open in the historic buildings along it together with small parks and pop culture sites. It is delightful to walk or scooter along the beltline with friends on a sunny day, with native plants surrounding. Grab a drink or stop for food, experience a true atlanta lifestyle.

We love this serene spot in the center of the city. The north side is more woody, natural and less crowded , a great place to hike. The south side offers a big sports field , BBQ site, dog parks, event meadow and a beautiful lake. There are always so many things happening in the park, but it always has a spot for everyone.

The High Museum is fun to visit for its architecture as well as its collections. Designed by several world famous Master architects, it is one of the leading art museums in the Southern USA. Located in Midtown, it is a convenient place to start or end your day exploring the city and spend a few hours exploring their varied exhibits and enjoying the wondrous design of the building. It is also notable for being in quite a few movies, including Black Panther and the Divergent movies. We keep going for their special exhibits and enjoy that the second Sunday of each month has free admission for all from 1-4pm and Bank of America account holders can get free admission the first weekend of the month.

Ponce City Market is a modern icon of Atlanta. Formerly the Sears and Roebuck warehouse and conveniently located on the Beltline, it is one of the early and best examples of adaptive re-use for mixed-use development in a city. It is now home to apartments, restaurants, a food court, a variety of shopping options, and office space and has endless options to explore. We particularly like Jia (spicy szechuan food) and City Winery for eating, and many people enjoy The Roof and 9-mile station, which sit atop the market and offer food and entertainment with views of the city. Ponce City Market also holds events throughout the year so be sure to check out their events calendar. Quick tip - if you want to go to the roof it is $10 on weekdays or $15 on weekends. If you make a reservation at 9-mile station, you will be asked for a deposit, but it will go towards your meal and the admission to the roof will be waived. Plan ahead as same-day reservations tend to be hard to get on the weekends.

We like to go for their special events, such as the Chihuly exhibit or the Holiday Nights where they do special art and lighting and open the gardens at night.

One of the oldest and largest cemeteries in Atlanta, Oakland Cemetery is named for the numerous oak trees that can be found throughout the beautiful 6-acre space. Though it may seem strange, it is home to some beautiful gardens and a ton of Atlanta history. We recommend taking a stroll through and exploring at your own pace, but for those who enjoy the history and learning, stop by the visitor’s center and grab a map (or download online). They also offer guided tours and have special self-guided tours with audio that can be played through your phone at each of the stops.

Little Five Points is one of Atlanta’s hippest neighborhoods. Check out the indie stores for offbeat vintage clothing, vinyl and cool gifts, or hang out at the dive bars lining the streets. The Vortex, for example, is known for their burgers and unique atmosphere. The Variety Playhouse, a live music venue in a converted 1940s cinema, hosts an eclectic range of local and national acts.
