The Editor’s View: The 2018 Best of Atlanta Issue

It never gets old hearing where to find the best Caribbean food. Insert just about anything we spend our money on in the place of Caribbean food and you’ll get where I’m going with this; we always want the best our money can buy — experience and product alike.

The quality of an experience increases our depth and sophisticates our appetites for better. The saying, “You get what you pay for” is relevant when attempting to gauge the type of engagement you’ll have in exchange for your money but it’s more than that.

Not every brand is driven by the goal of establishing themselves as elite or employs the ideology that, first and foremost, the product should be supreme … one that no matter the price, distance or competition in the marketplace, compels people to return for it time and time again. It’s what draws many of us to shop locally and emphatically with the small businesses that undergird our communities.

We are always searching for the “it” factor; that extra quality that separates the good from the great. That’s what you’ll find in the 2018 Best of Atlanta. The best restaurants, hair salons, photographers, yoga studios, security firms, pet groomers and more. You’re welcome.
