Full disclosure, I have known Angus since pre-school so I will be the first to admit this is not going to be an in depth or exceptionally objective think-piece about a new Atlanta destination. Instead, below you can enjoy photos and descriptions of the dishes we tried (which speak for themselves honestly)
Although the new legislation limits itself to the area surrounding Downtown Atlanta, the state capitol building, and Atlanta City Hall, the city began easing restrictions that formerly only allowed food trucks to operate on private property and not on public city streets.
After a busy week following my return from Washington, DC I finally had the time to put together this post, highlighting some finer points of the day trip – including dinner at José Andrés‘Jaleo
What started ostensibly as a trip to reconnect with Kozee and see Scuba DJ at U Street Music Hall, spiraled into a hedonistic food exploration as bad weather and a series of events led me to making the trip solo.
Running a little behind on getting these mini-vacation posts up on to the website but fortunately there is no time limit on these.

After they started favoriting my tweets but refusing to respond, I turned the screws a bit and was invited by Eater.com to email in my concerns. I have emailed them a copy of this URL because, quite simply, they published their story online, and they want to feign journalistic integrity. In light of both these facts it seemed unfair to take the conversation offline. I stand behind what I publish, otherwise I wouldn’t bother putting it in a public forum. You don’t get to start the discussion in public then take all conversations of it offline when the tenor doesn’t suit you. Sorry, but you’re not getting off the hook that easy.
So without further introduction, I give you my long-awaited treatise against Eater.
@icntmx sorry to hear you’re not happy with the post/the site. feel free to email me [redacted] if you’d like to talk further.
