With delicious restaurants opening up left and right in Atlanta, it can be hard to stand out. For Ponce de Leon hot spot 8ARM, that’s never been a problem. Executive Chef Maricela Vega has received critical acclaim for her innovative menu, featuring items like peaches and sunflower creme, preserved oyster mushrooms and tagliatelle.
Having lived in Atlanta for 12 years, Vega loves being part of the change and shift in the Atlanta culinary culture. She ensures 8ARM pays special attention to sourcing and especially gives support and acknowledgement for people of color by giving everyone a seat at the table.
