How to Savor Your Holiday Shopping

It’s no secret that holiday shopping intensifies hunger pangs, so we’ve mapped out the best dining spots conveniently located within the Atlanta-area’s busiest shopping districts.

  • Alpharetta’s Avalon features more than 500,000 square feet of retail -- that’s a lot of stores to cover! Luckily, Marlow’s Tavern and King Barbecue also are on premises serving hearty fare to keep guests on their feet.

  • In Buckhead, ATL Taco keeps Lenox Square mall shoppers satisfied with tacos, tequila and fresh juices, while Gypsy Kitchen and The Southern Gentleman fuel luxury purchases with Spanish tapas and Southern gastropub fare at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta.

  • Marietta restaurants Drift Fish House & Oyster Bar and Beni’s Cubano are among the dynamic mix of retailers at The Avenue East Cobb, making shoppers crave sustainable seafood and authentic Cuban dishes. Or, take a shopping excursion at Merchant’s Walk for lunch at Marlow’s Tavern or into the evening with dinner at Seed Kitchen & Bar followed by drinks at Stem Wine Bar.
