It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of the new restaurants that open in Atlanta what seems like every week, but plenty of eateries worth celebrating have been longtime fixtures on the local dining scene. Take Henri’s Bakery, for example, which is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year. It’s moved several times since first opening on the corner of Peachtree and 10th, but it now has a flagship location in Buckhead, in addition to outposts in Sandy Springs and the Upper Westside. Another milestone celebrant is Souper Jenny, now ringing in its 20th year. Diners enjoy its delicious soups, sandwiches and more at the outpost in the Atlanta History Center and other locations around the metro area. And Taco Mac, known for its casual American fare and numerous “crafts on drafts,” is turning 40 this year. So the next time you’re hungry, consider stopping in to one of these stalwart restaurants and wishing them a happy birthday.
