ATLANTA (June 23, 2016) – Thanks to some of the city’s best restaurants, there’s no need to settle for humble hot dogs on the grill this Fourth of July. Whether your Independence Day traditions include feasting on barbecue or wearing red, white and blue, these Atlanta-area eateries are ensuring guests also stay devoted to dining out with the following fanfare:

Get red, white and bluesin’ at Bellina Alimentari. The Ponce City Market favorite has a live music series the first Sunday of each month from 4 – 7 p.m.  On July 3, enjoy food, libations and lots of great music. Bellina is also open for regular business on July 4.

It’s a Fourth of July Terminus City Takeover at Communion, the beer garden-inspired backyard behind Revival, Kevin Gillespie’s family-style restaurant in Decatur.
