This month, more than 30 million homes across the Southeast will get a taste of Atlanta’s thriving culinary scene. Dish Worth the Drive: Southern Eats Edition, a new syndicated television series, celebrates the red-hot food scene south of the Mason-Dixon line. The premiere episode, which focuses on top Atlanta restaurants will air locally on Sunday, June 14 at 2:30 p.m. on WGCL-TV.

“Atlanta residents have long known how diverse, rich and innovative their local culinary scene is,” said Andrew Wilson, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau (ACVB). “This show provides us a great opportunity to spread this message throughout the South.”

Host Steak Shapiro will highlight some of Atlanta’s most unexpected cuisine – grilled octopus, dim sum, and churrasco to name a few – at top food spots around the city, including St. Cecilia, Bone Garden Cantina, Gunshow and Serpas True Food. Shapiro will interview local chefs to learn how they incorporate fresh, local ingredients to serve up the best in Southern cuisine with creative twists on traditional meals.
