Did Your Favorite Athens Restaurant Make Our Top Four List?Posted on June 23, 2016
With so many dining options around Athens, it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what you’re in the mood for. We’ve put together a list of our favorites, the top four places to eat in Athens, guaranteed to please. Whether you’re looking for casual eclectic or modern elegance, Athens has something for everyone.
- The National: File this beloved restaurant under “something different” and “absolutely delicious healthy food.” Chef Peter Dales’ Spanish/Mediterranean cuisine will make you happy you ate your vegetables and your chicken with za’atar. As an Athens staple, this is definitely one to try.
- The Grit: Its been said, “The Grit is like your favorite pair of jeans, like a down comforter on a cold night, like a familiar face in a crowd, like the song that keeps playing in your head, like home.” That, and vegetarian fare loved by everyone.
- Last Resort Grill: This may be the best restaurant in Athens. With a diverse and inexpensive lunch/brunch menu as well as a can’t-miss dinner menu, there’s something for everyone and something new to try each visit. Trust us; you’ll want to go back again and again.
- Cali N Tito’s: This casual dining hot spot is a must-try. Hands down the best fish tacos you will ever eat. You’ll also get a taste of the Athens’ culture as they accept cash only but it’s BYOB! This is a favorite among UGA students and Alumni – see if you agree.
With so many things to experience – and eat – in the area, it’s no wonder why Athens has been named one of the best places to live in America. The Georgia Club, just a quick drive away, offers Southern living in a classic country club setting with a modern twist. As well as beautiful homes, residents enjoy extra wide sidewalks, perfect for that after-dinner walk, and a second-to-none fitness and aquatics center, not to mention the championship golf course.
Residents here also have access to first-rate meals just steps from their front doors. With a restaurant on the property, The Georgia Club offers the best of the best and something for everyone. The Pool-Side Grille is also available through-out the summer, so take advantage of those lazy days by the pool! The executive chef Ray Whitlock is cooking up something special now – stop in for a taste.
