James Beard Restaurant Committee members have been visiting Atlanta and tweeting up a storm.
Here’s a sample of what these restaurant critics and food writers, who seem to have been everywhere from OK Cafe to Octopus Bar, are saying about dining (and drinking) in Atlanta:
Rick Nelson @ricknelsonstrib, Minneapolis Star Tribune: Breakfast at the OK Cafe in Atlanta. If it’s good enough for Harper Lee, it’s good enough for me.
Tom Sietsema @tomsietsema, Washington Post: Best overall meal in my tour of Atlanta so far: @Cakes_and_Ale in Decatur. Awesome service/drinks/lamb w/minted yogurt.
Alison Cook @alisoncook, Houston Chronicle: One of my favorite things about Atlanta is pimento cheese everywhere I go. Here @ Table 1280 @Woodruff arts complex.
Kate Krader @kkrader, Food & Wine: This charred cod collar with tapenade rocks @KRSteakbar.
Jennifer Cole @jennifervcole, Southern Living: Best way to recover from a food hangover? Hair of the dog: Pimiento cheese w bacon jam at @ESSouth.
