I was hoping to offer more insider tips on Atlanta’s entertainment, shopping and sites of note, but a busy work schedule left me no time for any of that (no worries: an upcoming trip will provide plenty) so instead I’m offering this mini food tour of the city.

Repast is a lovely, modern place that features an intriguing menu. Our table shared bacon wrapped dates, roasted beets, salmon tartare, and crab cakes before swooning over entrees. I opted for the free range chicken with kale, gnocchi, pancetta and black truffle jus and benefited from the kindness of my co-eaters with a bite of an incredible pork belly.

The next night, we revisited a place I ate at a while ago on another business trip, South City Kitchen, which has lost none of its tastiness in the interim. Pimento cheese, fried green tomatoes, and mac and cheese were shared with gusto and my salmon with spaghetti squash, home made mascarpone, pomegranate and watercress was great.

Also, and I’m stating the obvious here, Chick-Fil-A f-ing rules (I ate it both for breakfast and lunch one day in a feat of impressive gluttony) and the Four Seasons is a pretty nice place to stay (they also offer a nice array of small plates in their lounge as well as crazy dolled up specialty cocktails).
