Super Bowl bites: Get a taste of New England and Georgia at Austin restaurants

Super Bowl 51 descends on one of the country’s best food cities (Houston) this weekend. In honor of the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons, I’ve put together a list of Austin restaurants where you can get a taste of the two team’s regions. The following dishes nod to the foodways of Georgia and New England.
