“We are so proud to serve the city in this capacity and to show the world the amazing restaurants and chefs that help define Atlanta,” Taste of Atlanta founder Dale DeSena said in a statement. “We can’t wait to transform Tech Square into foodie heaven once again this year!”

General admission tickets are $25 in advance; $35 at the gate, and come with 10 taste tickets. Kids ages 13 and under get in free but will need a taste ticket to sample the eats.

.Taste of Atlanta is about being seated at your favorite table and having the all your favorite restaurants serve you all at once. It gives you the opportunity to say, “My compliments to the chef”. Bon Appetit
