What I Eat

After a hard day in the kitchen, chefs want to go have someone else cook for them. But where do they go? Lucky for you, we ask them, and the answers are almost always unexpected.

Wes James – Fat Matt’s Rib Shack

Wes lives in Decatur and likes to hit local spots like Leon’s Full Service, Iberian Pig, and enjoys family time at Taco Mac. If you want to see some other places to hit in that part of town, check out In Your Neighborhood: Downtown Decatur.

Jeremy Turner – Oak Grove Market

The Turners work a lot, so they don’t get to go out too often. But when they do, it’s a hit-and-run visit to Taqueria del Sol in Decatur.

Nick Oltarsh – ONE Midtown Kitchen

Atlanta has a lot of great chef-driven dining, so you might be surprised to hear Nick waxing lyrical about Fogo de Chao in Buckhead.

Joe Truex – Watershed on Peachtree

Joe gets away from the modern Southern of his own kitchen to take in Royal China dim sum, and pho from Lee’s Bakery which serves, as Joe calls it, “that bangin’ bahn mi bread” and Vietnamese crepes.
