Atlanta’s Historic Oakland Cemetery is an attraction that should not be missed. Many famous Atlantans are buried here including author Margaret Mitchell and Mayor Maynard Jackson. Decades ago, cemeteries were places for families to gather and enjoy picnics. You can skip the picnic and, instead, try one of the nearby restaurants.

  • Ammazza - Craving pizza? Head on over to Ammazza. Pies are large and enough to feed three to four people. The signature is Ammazzare, with sausage, peppers, onions and basil. It is glorious, but I like the Bolognese with meatballs and sausage a tad more.  Ammazza is open late on weekends, and there is free parking.

  • Daddy D’z Joynt - If it is barbecue you seek, then visit Daddy D’z. This is a longtime Atlanta favorite. 

  • Krog Street Market - Much of the architecture in this preserved factory has been turned into a restaurant space.  There’s Tex-Mex at Superica, fancy French at The Luminary and even sushi at Craft Izakaya. Or save some bucks at one of the many food stalls. Choose from Chinese at Gu’s Dumplings, sandwiches at Fred’s or Mediterranean fare at Yalla.

  • Six Feet Under - You can’t talk about a visit to the Oakland Cemetery without thinking about Grant Park's Six Feet Under. The restaurant actually overlooks the graveyard. What to order? Seafood.

  • Spice to Table - Chef Asha Gomez has created a cute spot with Spice to Table. Here, you’ll choose from several specials of the day when you place your order at the counter. If you’ve never had her Kerala spiced fried chicken it is a must, and there are vegetarian options that will please as well.
