Food tours typically draw in tourists, but Road Forks travel blog author Akila McConnell recently launched a service targeted at locals. Atlanta Food Walks offers a three-and-a-half hour Downtown Southern Food Walk that stops at seven restaurants, taking attendees through the history of Southern cuisine.
Smoke Ring, a new barbecue joint, is scheduled to open in Castleberry Hill at the end of September. The latest from 101 Concepts (they also operate Cibo e Beve, Food 101, and Meehan’s Public House), this “gastrocue” will be led by Jordan Wakefield, former executive chef at Meehan’s downtown, and his wife Erin. It occupies the space previously home to J.R. Crickets. Smoke Ring will serve traditional barbecue, as well as sliders, small plates, soups, and salads, with sides such as cotija corn on the cob, bacon, and jalapeno cornbread. Below, Wakefield shares details on the restaurant.
