GAYOT, publisher of award-winning restaurant and travel guidebooks, announces the expansion of the best-loved Restaurants series with the release of two new titles for 2001. Hot off the press, the first editions include:

Atlanta Restaurants (April 2001)
Washington, DC Restaurants (April 2001)

GAYOT Restaurant guides take diners into the heart of a region's food scene, from the hidden spots where the meals are impeccable to the hot new restaurants making headlines. From city to city, GAYOT's professional food critics rate restaurants on the 20-point scale-for years the most respected reference throughout the culinary world. Thousands of establishments-from fine dining rooms to local cafés-were meticulously researched and reviewed. Every review includes useful reference information, mouthwatering menu recommendations, uncompromising commentary and expert food ratings. Easy-to-use indexes help diners choose the perfect place to eat; restaurants are cross-referenced by neighborhood, rating, feature, and cuisine. Frank, enthusiastic and informed, these are more than guides to eating well-they're city-by-city handbooks to the good life!

Atlanta Restaurants includes restaurants, quick bites and gourmet shops from Downtown to Duluth, Decatur to Roswell, throughout the Atlanta metro area. Established dining rooms, trendy newcomers and ethnic eateries delight the senses-and the palate. From collard greens to foie gras, Atlanta serves up a wide variety of flavors. Hundreds of reviews tempt readers with a comprehensive look at the food scene in this very Southern city. Plus, expanded wine coverage includes wine tips, tasting terms, food & wine events, and winery touring in the South.

Washington, DC Restaurants offers reviews of restaurants, quick bites and gourmet shops throughout the capital, and beyond to the suburbs of Virginia and Maryland. A major restaurant scene, the capital and surrounding areas are home to top-flight restaurants. Virtually every cuisine under the sun is represented here. For an exceptional dining experience, a savory trip through the world's gastronomies, or a plain family dinner, you'll find it in Washington, DC Restaurants. An expanded Wine Savvy section includes a glossary of grapes and tasting terms, food & wine events, vintage chart, and a handy list of scores of area wineries for touring.
