Best of Atlanta - Chowhound Version

Dio Seijuro May 16, 2007 03:59 PM

I've searched the board but seems like this has not been done yet. There is a lot of "Best of xxx in Atlanta", but can't find a comprehensive list. I'd love to compile a Best of Atlanta by fellow hounds. The categories I came up with are generally ones I'm interested in, so if you feel a great restaurant is left out, please submit a new category.

I think a best and a runner up would be enough for each category. I'm really eager to see some participation, so please share your opinions!

      I agree. I think that is why there are no responses so far
