Have you heard? The Georgia Department of Economic Development’s Tourism Division recently released the 2018 state culinary guide, Georgia Eats, and Calhoun’s own Christian & Jake’s Bistro made the coveted “100 Plates Locals Love” list! Their delicious Rueben sandwich is highlighted for its “large amount of meat; perfect combination of flavors.”
In addition to the wildly popular “100 Plates Locals Love,” the fourth annual digest-sized guide features 10 flavor tours that showcase inspiring dining options, a gallery of the state’s most Instagrammable foods, unique festivals, and delectable recipes from a few of Georgia’s celebrated chefs.
Since the inaugural issue of Georgia Eats, Georgia Tourism has designated the “100 Plates Locals Love” as a way to provide visitors with locally sourced suggestions. Nominations from around the state are gathered via ExploreGeorgia.org and evaluated by a panel of judges who curate the list down to the final designees. The list has been likened to recommendations that Georgians would share with family and friends, and it has received rave reviews from visitors as well as restaurant owners. View the full “100 Plates Locals Love” list online here.
