Oral Pleasures

In a time where mobile technology reigns supreme, it is common to see humans glued to their phones at the dinner table. But imagine a simpler time, when the dinner table was a chance for conversation and community. In this year’s Oral Pleasures, we hope to carry on and expand those traditions – not just to offer our readers a chance to sample the diversity of ATL’s restaurants, but to bring people together from all cultures to break bread and share food. If there’s one thing that we know, it’s that food is essential to survival. So why not eat something delicious?

— Lauren Leathers, Events Editor
