Plenty has changed since we last compiled Atlanta's 100 Dishes to Eat Before You Die in 2011. Restaurants have come and gone, menus are more seasonal, and, thanks to technology, the act of eating out has become more social than ever. Needless to say, it was time for an update. So, back by popular demand, here is Atlanta's 2013 culinary bucket list. We combed the city for 100 dishes, a mix of signatures, classics, and bests, to once again help you navigate Atlanta's gastronomic glory. We also asked six prominent Atlanta food figures what their last meals in Atlanta would be to discover what dishes full-time foodies are most passionate about.
In the spirit of progress, we revamped our mobile site for easy, on-the-go access to the list and even partnered with Foursquare so you can collect badges as you check in at each of our 100 Dishes locations. So pick up a print edition, keep the list handy on your cell phone, and like Creative Loafing on Foursquare to play along as you explore CL's 100 Dishes to Eat in Atlanta Before You Die: Redux. — Stephanie Dazey
