"Busy, noisy, ugly - but features some great destinations!"
Piedmont is sort of the ugly sibling to Peachtree, the main thoroughfare in Atlanta. You can take it all the way from buckhead down through midtown, but the ride is not always a pleasant one. Piedmont is ugly and it often is blocked by terrible traffic. Atlanta has spent millions of dollars to beautify Peachtree, but Piedmont remains as ugly as ever. One bright side is the number of great restaurants on Piedmont: Bones features the best steaks in Atlanta. Fogo de Chao is always an adventure. The Buckhead Diner is a great night spot! If you cannot enjoy the ride, it helps to avoid the destination.
