If I had to narrow down my one true life passion it would be pretty easy… food. I love every kind of food- healthy food, unhealthy food, ethnic food, fast food- you get the picture. One of the reasons why I decided to start Peaches to Pearls was to share this passion of food with you. It’s also one of the reasons I decided to get my Masters in Clinical Nutrition- to learn how food truly affects our bodies. So with all that being said, I am very excited to tell you that I have now eaten at over 200 new restaurants in Atlanta since I moved here three years ago. Today I am going to share that list with you AND my Top 10 Best Atlanta Restaurants. People are always asking me “Hey Luisa where do you recommend we eat while we’re in Atlanta”- well my friends here are 10 suggestions for your next visit. Keep in mind, these are my personal favorite spots. You locals may disagree with them but I decided these were my top 10 based on food quality, price point, and ambiance. So here we go- the top 9 are in no particular order but my number 1 is my ultimate favorite restaurant in Atlanta.
Its was really hard to come up with my favorite 10 restaurants. I have been incredibly blessed and able to eat at so many wonderful restaurants. A little personal oath I made when I decided to start blogging about restaurants is that I will never speak poorly of a restaurant. This is because I know how much hard work goes into running a kitchen and most of these restaurants are run by locals who are trying to fulfill their dream of owning their own business. I chose my top 10 based on my overall experience at these restaurants. So how exactly did I decide my #1 you ask? Well its simple- which restaurant did I eat this year that I would want to go back over and over again? Table and Main is my winner. This quaint Roswell restaurant is a perfect combination of Southern food and hospitality. Its incredibly romantic and each dish is delicately prepared by Chef Ted Lahey. I especially love the fact that Table and Main sources fresh goods and ingredients from nearby Georgia farms, artisan bakers, creameries, breweries and other local purveyors. If you haven’t gone there yet, make it your New Years Resolution to try it out.
Please let me know if you make it to any of these restaurants I suggested. I would love to chat about what you ordered and what your experience was like. Until next years list, bon appetit my friends!
