Iconic Atlanta restaurants leave mark on community
Atlanta is a city known for its entertainers, traffic and inconsistent weather. Something that’s often overlooked is Atlanta’s diverse food scene. Atlanta has all kinds of foods, ranging from Soul Food to classic American to contemporary desserts. Historical restaurants such as The Varsity, Mary Mac’s Tea House and Majestic Diner are integral to Atlanta’s culture. Places like these have helped shape Atlanta but not all Atlantans know about them. The Southerner recognizes the impact these restaurants have had on the Atlanta area, as well as the people of the Midtown community.
