·       Best Group Dining Spot – Babalu Tapas & Tacos (Midtown). “When you’re in the mood to try one of everything, invite your friends...and do just that" when ordering from the shareable menu of Latin-inspired albondigas, lamb sliders or camarones tacos. 
 
·       Best Brunch – The Southern Gentleman (The Shops Buckhead Atlanta). ”This gastropub radiates Southern sophistication with vintage silverware, handsome tufted leather booths and -- of course -- a giant portrait of Mark Twain...the best brunch this side of the Mississippi.”            
 
·       Best Rising Star Chef – Scotley Innis of 5Church Atlanta(Midtown). "...The experienced executive chef (South City Kitchen, Ormsby's) is spicing things up at 5Church with creative dishes inspired by his knowledge of modern Southern cuisine and his Caribbean roots.” 

·       Best Spot for Dining on a Diet – The Big Ketch(Buckhead and Canton Street). “…Fresh seafood delivered daily, tons of delicious salads and a special menu of signature low-cal bowls…coastal that won’t bump you up a pant size.”
 
·       Best Neighborhood Pub – HOBNOB Neighborhood Tavern(Midtown and Brookhaven). “…This laid-back tavern has one of the largest selections of bourbon and whiskey in the Southeast, plus a wide selection of refined pub grub.” 
 
·       Best Lounge – The Regent Cocktail Club (The Shops Buckhead Atlanta). “With 1940s-inspired decor and a menu of classic sips (think martinis, Manhattans and more), it’s no wonder this stylish lounge atop American Cut took home the gold.”
