1. The General Muir
This New-York style Jewish deli is located about 15 minutes away from campus, near Emory. I love how the sleek, white subway tiling around the restaurant bears semblance to traditional New York delis. This restaurant is upscale and reservations can be made for dinner only. Offering breakfast, lunch, dinner, and brunch, this deli is definitely a place to visit any time of day! My personal favorite menu items are the pastrami sandwich and the matzo ball soup. Absolutely delicious!
2. The Sundial
The Sundial is very unique in that it is a spinning hotel restaurant, offering panoramic views of the city of Atlanta. Located walking distance from campus, this fancy restaurant is definitely a place where reservations are strongly recommended. A variety of food options are available, such as seafood pasta, lobster rolls, smoke house burgers, sea scallops, wood roasted salmon, and much more. Check out this place if you’re up to enjoying breathtaking views of the city in an elaborate restaurant.

Just a few minutes away near Georgia Tech, this family-run pizzeria never disappoints. In fact, it is known to be the seventh highest rated pizzeria in the US, according to TripAdvisor. Authentic pizza ovens imported straight from Italy, amazing atmosphere, and you can never go wrong with pizza! Super casual and no reservations needed.
4. West Egg Café
This popular brunch spot serves breakfast food all day and is located just three miles away from campus, in midtown. A very casual environment and no reservations necessary. I highly recommend the Georgia Benedict and the black bean cakes & eggs. Definitely a fun place to go with your family!
