Driftwood Bistro has been awarded the 2019-2020 “Georgia’s 100 Plates” distinction by the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s Tourism Division (GDEcD). The wildly popular nomination-based list of “Georgia’s 100 Plates” is featured in the fifth annual Explore Georgia Culinary Guide. The 100 Plates list is a collection of outstanding dishes from around the state that represent Georgia’s diverse culinary scene.
Since the inaugural issue of the Explore Georgia Culinary Guide, Georgia Tourism has designated “Georgia’s 100 Plates” as a way to provide visitors with locally sourced suggestions. Nominations from around the state are gathered via ExploreGeorgia.org as well as Georgia Tourism’s social media channels and evaluated by a panel of judges who curate the list down to the final designees. The list has been likened to recommendations that Georgians would share with family and friends, and it has received rave reviews from visitors as well as restaurant owners.
