Best place to take a client  -  Rathbun’s Steak provides great food, service and ambiance.

Favorite watering hole  -  Marcel, for the midcentury cocktails.

Favorite local beer  -  SweetWater. It is the Southeast’s biggest brewery.

Favorite building  -  Georgia State Capitol. 

Ugliest building  -  It used to be the Bobby Burgess Building, but that was recently renovated. Now you can pick most of the federal buildings. 

Best restaurant  -  Revival in Decatur—creative and tasty Southern food, superb service and a family-dining-style menu.

Favorite historical site  -  Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, and the Carter Center. 

Favorite quote  -  “The City of Atlanta has always had a good spirit.” —Ivan Allen Jr.

Favorite city event  -  Atlanta Musicfest. 

Favorite courthouse perk  -  At the district court, free parking, and cellphone allowed with identification card.

Favorite breakfast spot  -  West Egg Café in West Midtown. 

Favorite lunch spot  -  Pasta Da Pulcinella. 

Best place to reflect  -  The Carter Center.

Best view  -  Our offices on the 24th floor—you can see all of Atlanta, and the mountains.

Best place for people watching  -  Piedmont Park.

Favorite local shop  -  A Capella Books, located in the historic Inman Park neighborhood. It is the go-to place for out-of-print titles, classic literature and political books.  

Favorite coffee shop  -  Land of a Thousand Hills. It is owned by local roasters who source their beans from Rwandan farmers to help alleviate poverty there. 

Favorite pizza joint  -  Antico—family-style dining and amazing pizza. You can bring your own wine.

Favorite city sports moment  -  1995, when the Atlanta Braves won the World Series against the Cleveland Indians in six games.

Most heartbreaking city sports moment  -  2017 Super Bowl. Need I say more?

Weirdest city law  -  “You may not carry an ice cream cone in your back pocket if it is Sunday.” I guess the rest of the days are fine. 

Favorite lesser-known tourist attraction  -  Tiny Doors ATL. Can you find them all? 

Favorite movie theater  -  I have a toddler; I am sure movie theaters have changed since I last went.
