You won't find the happy chain restaurant-bar in ATL's gayborhood (10th & Piedmont near Piedmont Park for those not in the know) but you can find solid eats in the blocks surrounding Midtown's gay epicenter
On the edge of Piedmont Park, skip the burgers & make a bee-line to the salt block menu for sushi flown in from Hawaii & mouthwatering wagyu. Beers are only $1 when it rains!
Don't let the strip mall location fool you, Mediterranean Grill is a fine stop for cheap eats & tasty falafel.
James Beard winner Hugh Acheson's Atlanta outpost is a Midtown favorite & its menu changes daily. I'm a fan of the superfood plate at lunch and you never know what will be on the dinner menu. The wine & cocktail program are killer & don't forget to leave room for dessert
