Driving from FLA to NYC - request for regional foodie stop suggestions on our itinerary please

We will be driving in a week from Florida to NYC.

Our itinerary is as follows:

Spring Hill, Florida
Covington, Social Circle, Madision Georgia
Washington DC
NYC (home - restaurant recs not needed here)

I would be most grateful for suggestions of where to eat in each location and particularly for where to stop for lunch or dinner between Florida and Atlanta and Atlanta and Asheville.

We love regional, local restaurants and shacks. Upscale and downscale both fine.

Thanks in advance for your help!

  1. If you do some searching on here you'll find lots of suggestions, especially for Atlanta and Asheville. Second, it might be more helpful to post the highways you'll be taking...for example, there are lots of ways to go from Asheville to DC....Blue Ridge Parkway to I-81, I-40 to I-77 to I-81, I-40 to I-85 to I-95? Third, don't forget Florida and DC are separate boards.

    You'll be better served to eat in Atlanta and Asheville....not a lot in between. In Asheville try 12 Bones, Tupelo Honey, The Admiral, Zambra, Table, Bouchon.
