LGBT food­ies sa­vored ev­ery bite dur­ing Taste of At­lanta

Over 90 restau­rants from around the city lined up to serve the masses as Taste of At­lanta took over Midtown at Tech Square. And as ex­pected, some LGBT fa­vorites par­tic­i­pated in the an­nual fes­ti­val on Sept. 25-27.

Max’s Wine Dive was rep­re­sented by openly gay chef Pa­tric Bell-Good’s fa­mous fried chicken, which Za­gat named one of last fall’s must-try dishes in At­lanta. Bell-Good was named Best Lo­cal Chef by Ge­or­gia Voice read­ers in this year’s Best of At­lanta awards.

Twisted Soul, co-owned by ex­ec­u­tive chef Deb­o­rah Vantrece and her wife, served up chips and black-eyed pea salsa, fried chicken, salad and creamy seafood grits over toasted baguettes. Twisted Soul also took home a Best of At­lanta award this year, with read­ers nam­ing the De­catur res­tau­rant Best New Res­tau­rant.

And Wa­ter­shed, co-owned by Emily Saliers of the Indigo Girls, brought its cof­fee roasted pork with blue­berry jam and cof­fee roasted lamb shoul­der with pre­served black­ber­ries.
