Every October our city’s largest food event, Taste of Atlanta, comes around, attracting over 70 restaurants, all of the top chefs in town, and hordes of food enthusiasts. And every year, without fail, I can’t go.
Thankfully, this year the planets aligned, and I actually had the weekend open.
If you’ve never attended Taste of Atlanta before, you should go at least once. It is a great opportunity to discover new restaurants, expand your knowledge of our city’s culinary landscape, and eat a hell of a lot of good food.
Just a warning for you ochlophobes out there – it is a very popular event, and it gets CROWDED. Surprisingly, not SO crowded that you have to wait 15 minutes to get a dish…in fact, I could walk right up to most of the tables and have my food in a matter of seconds. But it is a sea of people. If that sort of thing doesn’t faze you, then I’d say don’t miss it. In addition to all of the awesome food, there are cooking demos, guest speakers, cook-off competitions, and more.
I had my crappy little point-n-click in tow this Saturday, and snapped a few photos to remember the day by. However, there are plenty of folks that took a lot better pictures than I did…and you can find some of them here and here.
Hope to see y’all out there next year!
