BeltLine Food Trek
Whatever you’re hankering for, you can likely find it in Ponce City Market’s food hall.
This time of year, the Eastside Trail on the BeltLine can seem as congested as the Downtown Connector on any given Friday. But a crowd isn’t going to keep us away—spring in Atlanta is what we live for. So next time you hit the trail, make a point to trek from Ponce City Market to Krog Street Market, and hit one (or more) of these spots to refuel along the way.
If you start out with lunch at the Food Hall at Ponce City Market, you’ll have your pick of several top spots, including a Latin-inspired sandwich at Hector Santiago’s El Super Pan, one of the famed burgers at Linton Hopkins’s H&F Burger and fish tacos at Sean Brock’s Minero. Or just grab a sweet treat from Honeysuckle Gelato.
Start heading south on the BeltLine, then stop at Two Urban Licks and chill out on the patio that overlooks the trail with a glass of vino from one of the 72 kegs of on-tap. Or keep strolling past the Old Fourth Ward Skate Park and take a break at Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall. The restaurant just doubled its outdoor space on the BeltLine and now includes large teepees, Adirondack chairs and retro metal gliders, plus a number of communal beer tables. It’s also dog-friendly, so furry friends are welcome.
Once you reach Irwin Street in the heart of Inman Park, you’ll have your choice of restaurants. In the mood for Mediterranean tapas and wine? Hit Kevin Rathbun’s Krog Bar. Ford Fry’s Superica features his mashup of “Mex-Tex,” while Serpas True Food’s menu includes Louisiana inspired cuisine from chef/owner Scott Serpas. Of course, for even more offerings, head to Krog Street Market, where you can dine at food stalls and restaurants like Craft Izakaya, The Luminary and The Cockentrice.
