Zagat adding blog and video coverage for Atlanta

zagat_logo_03

A while back, we thought maybe Zagat had forgotten about Atlanta in its latest online coverage.

But starting today, Zagat.com will feature Atlanta news and curated lists from Zagat local editors, as well as search and map-based browsing capabilities. And maybe the biggest news is the site’s “Best of the Best” picks.

Here’s a peek at some of the current Atlanta picks:

Best Food: Bacchanalia
Best Decor: Nan Thai Fine Dining
Best Service: Bone’s Restaurant
Best Buys: Antico Pizza
Best Southern: Wisteria
Best Italian: Valenza
Best Steakhouse: Bone’s Restaurant
Best Brunches: Canoe

Are you a Zagat user? What do you think of the new Atlanta coverage and current picks?

Their ratings are not even remotely reflective of the local dining scene at its best. I realize that’s a function of the voter pool that takes the time to submit to Zagat for rating purposes. However, the results are just comically off in many instances. That’s a damned shame, too, because the Atlanta dining scene is white-hot right now.

A lot of the picks appear to represent Atlanta in its heyday and omit a huge subsection of more recent places doing great things. There’s definitely a sway to heavy fine dining establishments in most of these “best” picks, which is per Zagat’s M.O., but definitely not indicative of the Atlanta dining scene as it stands today. I’m glad that there is a local voice, but they should certainly get out more.

I don’t think the awesomeness of canoe’s brunches are in any doubt. :)
