The Atlanta Project series is one that explores the evolution of this city, first taking a look at its expanding art scene, tattoo culture and retail community. In our latest instalment, we focus on the fashionable nature of food and the fast-paced emergence of culinary trends. Steve Sharples is the general manager of Flip Burger Boutique and notes how the restaurant, pioneered by Top Chef competitor Richard Blais, was the first upscale burger establishment to appear in the city. The elevation of the burger concept is evident with the use of red wine jam, pickled shallots and soy truffle vinaigrette on their signature burger. Wes James, owner of Fat Matt’s, notes that despite gastronomic evolution an identifiable food is paramount to a city’s identity. This exploration of food culture in Atlanta will help you appreciate the level of importance the natives place on their food and will make you hungry at the same time.
