While some of these restaurants are open for dine-in service, many establishments are placing greater emphasis on patios and outdoor seating options, as well as takeout and delivery. Of course, there are many different types of cuisine to choose from in Atlanta’s vast international landscape. With that being said, take a look at our 3 suggestions below and start your food journey from there.
