It’s the dog days of summer and we’re having vivid fantasies of sun, sand and plates of fresh seafood. This is where Atlanta Eats comes in- we’re pretending this land-locked city is a beach town and making our fantasies a reality with our seafood guide. The suburbs are an underrated hub for beach-y dishes, so we scoped out the scene and decided to share insights with our fellow summer lovers.
