Over 90 restaurants from around the city are lined up to serve the masses this weekend as Taste of Atlanta takes over Midtown at Tech Square. And as expected, some LGBT favorites are taking part in the annual festival.
Max's Wine Dive will be represented by openly gay chef Patric Bell-Good's famous fried chicken, which Zagat named as one of last fall's must-try dishes in Atlanta. Bell-Good was named Best Local Chef by Georgia Voice readers in this year's Best of Atlanta awards.
Twisted Soul, co-owned by executive chef Deborah Vantrece and her wife, will serve up chips and black-eyed pea salsa, fried chicken salad and creamy seafood grits over toasted baguettes. Twisted Soul also took home a Best of Atlanta award this year, with readers naming the Decatur restaurant Best New Restaurant.
And Watershed, co-owned by Emily Saliers of the Indigo Girls, will bring their coffee roasted pork with blueberry jam and coffee roasted lamb shoulder with preserved blackberries.
