Iconic Atlanta restaurants leave mark on community

Atlanta is a city known for many things, including its unique culture. This culture shows up in different ways, including in iconic restaurants such as The Varsity, Mary Mac’s Tea Room, Majestic Diner, and more recently, King of Pops.

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.
