Revitalization of Edgewood Avenue brings new restaurants, bars to the area
Edgewood Avenue is a place rich in history. A staple of the area, the Sweet Auburn Curb Market opened nearly ninety years ago and has survived everything from fires to tornados. The Martin Luther King Center for Nonviolent Change is just around the corner, attracting tourists and locals alike. But when it comes to dining options, the area has not always been a foodie hangout—until recently.
Compared to other cities in roughly the same genre (youthful, sprawling, diverse), Atlanta doesn’t offer much of a platform for would-be indie food entrepreneurs with small budgets. I hear the same complaints constantly: “Why do we need twenty parking spaces or a grease trap as big as a Volkswagen to start putting out good food?” One major culprit seems to be a real estate landscape that favors cookie-cutter developments with oversized storefronts anathema to creative types.
