In its 10 years of existence, Taste of Atlanta has provided much more than a mere 'taste' for the city's ever-expanding foodie fan base. In addition to samples of signature menu items from Atlanta's most notable restaurants, TOA offers a unique opportunity for food enthusiasts to meet Atlanta chefs while getting the inside dish on the latest trends and learning something new before waddling home.

Atlanta has become more than just Coke, the Braves and conventions. Food has taken center stage in recent years, with the city's chefs achieving rock star status. Atlanta's dining scene is no longer up and coming, but setting trends, nailing its culinary stake firming into the ground. Nowhere will you see this showcased better than at the 11th annual Taste of Atlanta this weekend.

When it comes time to celebrate the epicurean capitals of America, Atlanta is often left out of the culinary conversation. But rather than sulk about the slight, the city's turning the other cheek and presenting the 11th annual Taste of Atlanta from October 5 to 7. The foodie fest at Tech Square near Georgia Tech's campus hopefully will change the minds of those who've ignored the city's eclectic cuisine for so long.

It's important for Atlanta chefs to be able to rally around an event that showcases the culinary landscape of Atlanta. It's a great chance to be entrenched in the community. It's also great to see people really excited about food, when they realize the communal effect that food has on people, how it really has an amazing ability to bring us together and embrace something that we define as a city.

Taste of Atlanta really exposes us to so many people who don't know who we are. It is a one of a kind festival because it's a true taste of Atlanta…it's great exposure for everyone from the restaurants with big PR firms to the little neighborhood spots.

Arrive with an empty stomach and get ready to chow down! This festival is known as the 'best bite in the city,' and believe us when we say it will not disappoint!
Taste of Atlanta is a really good connection with the community and is great for every business, multinational or independent. People may drive by your restaurant every day and not realize you are right there, and the only way to get in front of them is to show them the food they'll enjoy and come back for.

Taste of Atlanta is fun; we have a great time, there's lots of food, everyone comes outit's just a great big party. The festival puts us in front of people who haven't tried us before. It gets them to try us on a smaller scale and then hopefully come out and see us.
