Neighborhood Discovery: WestSide Midtown

Movin’ on up… to the WestSide.

Centered around Howell Mill Road between 10th and 17th street, the WestSide is becoming one of the next best kitschy-cool neighborhoods in Atlanta, which rivals (or happily reminds you of) other well-known industrial haunts a la the Meatpacking District in NYC or Soho in London.

From the gorgeous Anthropologie and Star Provisions family to the coveted Sid & Ann Mashburn stores, there is something for everyone in this understated part of town. Read on for an inside scoop on some of the best food spots in the area for whatever mood you’re in.
