Pittypat’s Porch

What would Atlanta be without Gone With the Wind-inspired restaurants? Pittypat’s Porch in Downtown is named after Scarlett’s Aunt Pittypat, the most welcoming hostess in all of Atlanta. This restaurant serves only the best traditional Southern meals from Georgia Catfish to the Georgia Peach Cobbler, just like you would expect from Aunt Pitty, and some of the menu items have fun Gone With the Wind-themed names, too. Try their famous Fried Chicken or Larry’s Amazing BlackBottom Pie.

King + Duke

King + Duke, an upscale restaurant in Buckhead, is named after the two con artists in Mark Twain’s Adventure of Huckleberry Finn. From Chef Ford Fry, this restaurant offers a seasonal dining experience based around a 24-foot open hearth. Much of the restaurant’s menu involves open-fire cooking, with plenty of meat options from beef to lamb to fish to rabbit. Try the Lamb Loin or the Rabbit Croquette.

West Egg Café

West Egg Café is a fitting name for a restaurant on Atlanta’s Westside that serves breakfast all day long, but the name actually comes from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby and the wealthy West Egg village where Gatsby lived. The restaurant is known for its Southern comfort food, all-day breakfast, lunch, and weekend brunch. They also have a separate coffee shop area with a lounge. Try the Shrimp & Grits or the Fried Chicken Biscuit.

Twain’s Brewpub & Billiards

Twain’s Brewpub & Billiards in Decatur is named after Mark Twain, the American literary icon who wrote your favorite childhood classics like The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. The interior walls of this establishment are even decorated with pages from Twain’s books. This restaurant serves classic pub food like burgers and fish & chips as well as house-brewed beer. Try the Cola BBQ Sandwich or the Sawyer Burger.

OK Café

The OK Café in Buckhead is named after a café with a brief mention in Harper Lee’s classic To Kill a Mockingbird. This old-fashioned diner opened in 1987 and serves Southern comfort food like your grandma used to make. Here, you can get everything from breakfast to burgers to mouthwatering desserts. Try the Pimento Cheese Burger or the Turkey Dinner.
