“Atlanta isn’t easily defined, and I think the more you try to define it, the less you're going to enjoy it," Andrew Zimmern says while touring the city in his new show, The Zimmern List.

Just before Halloween, Kevin Gillespie's Gunshow is paying tribute to the 1990s. The Glenwood Park restaurant will feature a menu filled with '90s throwback foods and pop culture references—all while the staff dresses up and '90s music roars through the speakers.
Of the approximately 100 restaurants in Statesboro, some 70 percent are fast food chains. Seni Alabi-Isama craved thoughtful food made from high-quality ingredients that reflected his wide-ranging cultural influences.
Parking in Atlanta can be a nightmare, especially when all you want is a bite to eat. So we've rounded up where you can park for free. No, not complementary valet and no, not in the occasional open space found on a side street after rounding the block three times. These are free lots next to the restaurant itself.
Gunshow and Revival chef Kevin Gillespie, along with Macon-based entrepreneur Stebin Horne, created a South African–style open grill called the Kudu. (Thanks, Kickstarter!)
Atlanta is a city that looks outward far more than inward, or even nearby. Outward, say, to the Lower East Side (the General Muir’s pastrami), or to China (Gu’s Dumplings), or to France (Bread & Butterfly’s tender, airy omelets). With the glorious exception of Ryan Smith at Staplehouse, I didn’t find a posse of young, or youngish, chefs all cooking as much for each other as for the public. The priority in Atlanta is less innovation based on local ingredients, as at Staplehouse, than finding a formula that works and then pumping out food to fit it. This makes for generous, untweezed food. But it also means food that, once successful, can become rote.
“I didn’t necessarily want to leave Gunshow. I knew that Holeman had this availability, and it’s just a really good fit. I’ve done a lot of charcuterie work and meat-focused dining,” says Gomez, who prior to Gunshow worked at the Branded Butcher in Athens.
