In its 16th year, Taste of Atlanta has moved from Tech Square to historic Old Fourth Ward Park, O4W Park, and added a few new wrinkles along the way.
But the food that more than 100 participating restaurants will serve over the weekend, Oct. 20-22, remains the big draw for the crowds that gather to enjoy this perennial outdoor fall event.
Metro restaurants offering tastes on Oct. 21 and Oct. 22 for general admission festivalgoers include returning favorites such as Bhojanic, Max Lager's, Davio's, Jim 'n Nick's Bar-B-Q, Waffle House and Woody's Cheesesteaks.
