ONE-OF-A-KIND DINING AT THE AIA CONFERENCE
Sure, we all go to the AIA Conference for work, but hey, ya gotta eat! Below are some of Atlanta’s best restaurants, with design as distinctive as their cuisine. These retro diners, tin-roof door cottages, and shackstaurants—part shack, part restaurant, are delicious, casual, quirky, can’t-miss destinations:
- No Atlanta visit is complete without a trip to The Varsity, the world’s largest drive-in, just minutes from the Georgia World Congress Center. Enjoy a chili cheese dog and the sweeping lines of the 1940s building.
- Ann’s Snack Bar in Kirkwood offers an ambiance like grandma’s house and a burger praised by The Wall Street Journal, Sean Combs, and nearly everyone in Atlanta. No cursing between bites.
- Fat Matt’s Rib Shack in Morningside serves up ribs, cocktails, and live blues music to make the wait entertaining.
- Take the brand new Atlanta Streetcar from Centennial Park to Sweet Auburn for delicious eats at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, ranked by USA Today as one of the best food markets around the world.
We’ll be in AIA Conference booth 3436 with a new product for adhered masonry walls, so please stop by.
