If you are planning on visiting Atlanta or maybe even relocating there, you will want to have some idea of where to start when it comes to eating out, so we decided to introduce your five restaurants that you absolutely must try while in Atlanta. These restaurants range from the Mom & Pop soul-food kitchen to fine cuisine.

1. 04W Pizza

This remarkable authentic pizzeria has an unbelievable reputation for baking some of the tastiest Italian foods in the city. Its name comes from the original neighborhood in which it was founded. While the restaurant is no longer in that location, the food is still remarkable. The owner of the establishment, Anthony Spina, is still heavily involved in the preparation of the food and the sustaining of the ambiance created in this restaurant. One thing you have to try when eating at 04W Pizza is their legendary Grandma Pie. I promise you will not be disappointed.

2. Sushi Hayakawa

Okay, I know that not everyone eats sushi, but the wonderful thing about most sushi restaurants is that they offer other delicacies outside of the traditional sushi meals. Sushi Hayakawa is relatively new in the Atlanta area; however, the person behind this remarkable establishment is not. Chef Art Hayakawa is legendary as an executive chef and sushi chef and after a rather lengthy hiatus, he has returned to open up his latest creation. There are many who believe that Hayakawa may be the best sushi chef in all of Atlanta, but we will leave that assessment up to you. The dining room in this restaurant is intimate and small, so you will need to make reservations before going in.

3. Heirloom Market BBQ

Okay, you cannot visit the south and not have Bar-B-Que; I am almost certain that there is some unwritten law that requires that you have iced-tea and BBQ while visiting the South. Well, if you are going to have some southern-style BBQ, the place you want to check out first is Heirloom Market BBQ. Be warned that the place has limited seating, so be prepared to wait, or you can always order to go. The general consensus of the customers who eat here is that the remarkable taste of the food makes the wait well worth it. The casual atmosphere means that you can come as you are.

4. Aria

There is something about fine cuisine that is served in a restaurant that creates the perfect ambiance with its lighting and décor. Aria is a restaurant that is the epitome of the fine dining experience. Because Chef Gerry Klaskala believed that his restaurants décor had become outdated, he recently renovated the entire dining room and the end result is nothing short of astonishing. This restaurant is located in the famous Buckhead section of Atlanta, meaning that there are a lot of other things you can do before and after your dining experience.

5. Mary Mac’s Tea Room

Finally, it is almost sacrilegious to visit the South and not partake of ifs southern cuisine, or should I say soul-food. Atlanta is likely the national hub for soul-food kitchens, making it difficult to choose just one, but for the sake of this list, we did just that. The heritage of this restaurant can be traced all the way back to the 1940s when tea rooms were places that families could go and enjoy meals in the presence of friends and loved ones. While these establishments did not sell tea in the traditional sense, they definitely offer the southern version along with all of the soul-food staples right down to chicken gizzards. Don’t knock it until you have tried it. Mary Mac’s is a must try.ifs southern cuisine, or should I say soul-food.
