ANDERSONVILLE — The annual Taste Of Andersonville is back and organizers say this year’s lineup is better than ever.

The Taste kicks off 6 p.m. Wednesday and this year’s restaurant lineup will include two distinctive tracks: a “spoon route” and a “fork route.”

Each route will feature 17 tastings. If patrons want to sample from all of the restaurants, they can purchase “The Works” ticket, which gives access to all of the tastings.

Tickets, which range from $30 to $60, are on sale now.

“We are thrilled to have so many new Andersonville restaurants joining us for Taste this year,” said Laura Austin of the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce.

Hungry residents attending the Taste should sample from Bettie Lou’s, a restaurant debuting this year at the event, and the Swedish American Museum, Austin recommended.
