Atlanta’s restaurant landscape is sprawling. But for one weekend each year Midtown is overrun with great food as the city’s best chefs and restaurants offer up a taste of what makes eating in Atlanta so exciting. Back for its 12th year, Taste of Atlanta will be held at Tech Square in Midtown from Fri.-Sun., Oct 25-27. The festival kicks off on Friday night with Atlanta’s Taste Revival block party hosted by chef Ron Eyester. There local chefs such as Shaun Doty of Bantam & Biddy and Kevin Gillespie of Gunshow will serve up dishes inspired by their favorite bands, musicians, and songs. The main festivities on Saturday and Sunday (from 11 a.m.-6 p.m.) include bites from more than 90 area restaurants, Taste of Atlanta’s Best Bartender competition, cooking demos hosted by CNN’s Holly Firfer, live music, and more.
