On a journey through the city’s cornbread kitchens
These places remind us that restaurants aren’t simply places where we eat and hang out; they, and the people who make them run, are members of our communities. They’re our neighbors.
Perhaps more than any stretch of pavement in the city, the expanse of Ponce de Leon Avenue between Mary Mac’s Tea Room and the Majestic Diner possesses the historic charm, the culinary creativity, and the total weirdness that makes Atlanta, well, Atlanta. Our ode to Ponce.
“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.
I don't believe in waiting for Thanksgiving to eat roast turkey when plenty of places around Atlanta serve it year-round. You can even get a whole turkey dinner with all the trimmings (pumpkin pie included) on a random Tuesday if you're feeling festive, which is a reason to give thanks even if it is still pool weather.
