Year after year, producing our Best of Atlanta issue is a challenge. We tried this year to find solace in and celebrate the things we’ve always championed, and so, you’ll still find here our favorite date-night spot, the most decadent spa treatment, the coolest new boutique. But this was also a year that demanded more creativity than any other—in many cases, creativity for the sake of survival. For that reason, it made sense to include our annual Groundbreakers awards as part of Best of Atlanta, allowing us to salute innovators and unprecedented achievements in every category, from restaurants to city government. In 2020, we owe extra thanks to our best Atlantans, for keeping our city afloat—and for inspiring all of us under the most trying circumstances.
