Exploring Atlanta's gastropub scene

ATLANTA - The term "gastropub" was coined in the UK in the 90s, marrying the terms "gastronomy" and "pub" (or "publick house" for you completists). The idea was geared toward freshening traditional pub food and creating cuisine that was more adventurist and creative, but that was not unattainable.

In Atlanta, gastropubs have surfaced and crafted a niche for themselves that have attracted some of the world's elite chefs. New gastropubs are showing up with regularity across the area, but if you want to cut your teeth, here's a selection of some of Atlanta's gastropubs.
