“It’s important for Atlanta chefs to be able to rally around an event that showcases the culinary landscape of Atlanta,” said Ron Eyester, owner and executive chef of Rosebud, The Family Dog and his latest concept, Timone’s Pizza, all 2013 Taste of Atlanta participants. “It’s a great chance to be entrenched in the community.  It’s also great to see people really excited about food, when they realize the communal effect that food has on people, how it really has an amazing ability to bring us together and embrace something that we define as a city.”

Since its inception in 2001, Taste of Atlanta has showcased hundreds of the city’s finest restaurants, celebrated Atlanta’s top-notch chefs and transformed tasters into dedicated diners.
