The Atlanta Guide to Dining

Last updated 6 years ago

For traditional southern fare, the city of Atlanta can’t be beat. Plan your next stay at a hotel in Emory to indulge in many of Atlanta’s most outstanding dining options. Here are a few Atlanta staples you can sample for yourself when you stay at The University Inn at Emory:

Sun Dial Restaurant: Atlanta is largely known for its outstanding traditional southern cuisine. Sun Dial Restaurant puts a twist on its food and service—literally! Over seven hundred feet in the air, this Atlanta landmark rotates to give you an outstanding view of the city below. You can enjoy anything from pan-seared salmon to duck ravioli alongside southern-inspired cocktails.

Mary Mac’s Tea Room: Traditional Atlanta cuisine includes juicy fried chicken, fresh vegetables, biscuits, grits, country fried ham, and perhaps as important as any food, delicious sweet tea. If you’re searching for the definition of southern hospitality and a meal along these very lines, Mary Mac’s Tea Room is well worth checking out. In over six decades, this Atlanta staple has changed hands just twice, never straying from their outstanding southern menu.

Colonnade: Founded all the way back in 1927, Colonnade has been an Atlanta hallmark for generations. From local rainbow trout to prime rib, everything on the menu is a bona fide hit. True to southern fare form, southern fried chicken is what Colonnade is most famous for, as their menu declares. For affordable, authentic southern cuisine, Colonnade is a safe bet.

Sun Dial Restaurant, Mary Mac’s Tea Room, and Colonnade will all give you a taste of what Atlanta does best.
