OK, clearly we had food on our minds when we made this week’s roundup. There are just so many great food-related things happening throughout metro Atlanta that deserve to be highlighted.
So, without further ado, here are five can’t-miss things to do this week in Atlanta:
Put AJC’s Spring Dining Guide to use
Explore Atlanta this week with the AJC’s new Spring Dining Guide. From a list of the best new restaurants to a look back at popular restaurants that have been Atlanta dining staples for years, our dining team has created a fun roadmap for local foodies.
Food by Design: Sustaining the Future
Explore how design elements affect our food intake everyday with Museum of Design Atlanta’s (MODA) new exhibit “Food by Design: Sustaining the Future.”
Take a look at how people involved in the food industry, from scientists to foodies, are thinking about the current and future design of the global food system.
The exhibit is open through May 21.
