  • I'm heading to Atlanta in a couple of weeks and am staying near and going to a convention near the Georgia world Congress Center.
    Which restaurants do you recommend nearby?
    • Hello there, Sandi. Atlanta can be a great dining town but it would help to know a bit about your tastes and budget. Just off the top of my head, there are a couple of restos which nicely update Southern food, both a 10 minute drive away: Sweet Georgia´s Juke Joint on the "soul food" side of things (try the chicken and waffles, and follow it up with the peach cobbler!) along with regular live music, and White Oak (love their take on shrimp and grits and fried green tomatoes, plus a great selection of bourbon and whiskey). Others include New South Kitchen and Restaurant 10 (especially for BBQ). And if you like Mexican, try the upscale modern take on it at Alma Cocina.
