Favorite Food Finds in Atlanta

  • Antico Pizza Napoletana

As I quickly learned upon my relocation to Atlanta, the food scene in Atlanta is outstanding. There is no shortage of restaurants to try at all price points. Before, during and after my recent move, the one thing I kept asking for was restaurant recommendations. I shouldn’t have been surprised that so many people were willing to share their favorites!

As with every list of this nature, it’s all subjective. Here are a few that have become instant favorites.




Billed as a restaurant, market, deli and community haven, it’s a perfect description. There’s a deli vibe with community tables downstairs and upstairs is a cool lofty place. The prices are reasonable and Parish offers two outside patio areas to enjoy the Atlanta weather with your meal.

Seating is first come, first served so be prepared to wait a few minutes if you arrive at a peak time. The space is small but the taste is big. I highly recommend the pulled pork sandwich. Make sure to leave room for a side of Rum baked beans or macaroni salad.


Antico Pizza Napoletana

When people say you are sitting in the kitchen, they aren’t kidding. Seating is communal, at benches and it can get packed, so be prepared for people to eye your table while you are eating. Antico allows you to bring your own alcohol making the price of a “beer and pizza” night relatively inexpensive.
