a long bat­tle with can­cer; and Bill Armstrong, 42, owner of Burly Bak­ers, who is gay, suf­fered con­ges­tive heart fail­ure in May and likely needs a heart trans­plant.

Last year’s run­ner-up is this year’s top vote get­ter as (www.land­markdiner.com) beats out the com­pe­ti­tion. Its motto is “Where Stars Meet At Night” and this is the place to be to soak up some booze or cure the munchies af­ter par­ty­ing all night, whether a Satur­day or a Tues­day. Open 24 hours, the diner’s menu in­cludes dozens of dishes cov­er­ing ev­ery­thing from egg plat­ters to a Thanks­giv­ing-inspired oven-roasted tur­key plat­ter to Greek spe­cial­ties such as Greek Sou­vi­aki (two skew­ers of mar­i­nated pork), Mous­saka (egg­plant with sliced pota­toes and sea­soned ground beef) and, of course, Spanako­pita.

takes third. TWISTED SOUL

If you haven’t tried Twisted Soul in De­catur (www.twist­ed­soulk­itchenand­bar) then you are miss­ing out on one of metro At­lanta’s best din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences. This is South­ern din­ing at its finest, with its al­ready fa­mous South­ern Mar­i­nated Fried Chicken. There’s also the Co­coa Crusted Rack of Lamb, but don’t shy away from the di­vine Seafood Mac-N-Cheese (with lob­ster, shrimp and craw­fish tails). And can we get an “amen” for the bar, where mixol­o­gists pour sig­na­ture moon­shine cock­tails and drinks named the But­ter Pe­can Shooter and the Sweet Pot Pie Mar­tini.

(www.maxswine­dive. com) nabs sec­ond and (www. drag­onbowlatl.com) fin­ishes in the third spot.
