I have never eaten at any of those three restaurants so I don't have a valid opinion, but Atlanta's food is definitely not one of its selling features to me. I like the diversity, but I haven't had worse tasting food in the south since Nashville.

When the reviewer picks a restaurant because of candied lamb belly.... Well, need we say more. What about picking them for something most of us would order?

I had the pastrami sandwich at The General Muir yesterday. It was really good.

If you think Atlanta has bad tasting food then you need to start eating at places that are a few steps above Applebee's, Ippolito's and Waffle House.

Atlanta has some of the best restaurants and chefs in the country. But you have to be willing to spend a bit of money and go places you wouldn't otherwise consider if you want to experience it.

Gunshow has been on my list of places to try since before it opened. I still haven't made it down there. I've eaten at Gillespie's previous restaurant several times and enjoyed it immensely each time.

Great point considering you've tried EVERY restaurant in Atlanta.

Where in Atlanta have you eaten? Atlanta is a world-class food city. Second only to New Orleans in the south.

I've been to King + Duke several times, each time it was fantastic. They cook up some amazing dishes and has a very upscale vibe in the dining room. We do brunch at General Muir quite frequently. I've done Gunshow once. Gunshow, while excellent, and a innovative concept (if you haven't been to Hong Kong for dim sum), was lacking a little.

Out of those, I enjoy General Muir the most. It's classy, but approachable. A deviation from the standard farm-to-table, most other Atlanta restaurants have on their menu these days.

As to the person who is judging the article based on the candied lamb belly, quite the open mind you have there.
