Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

The McDonald's pictured above might be the ultimate achievement in fast food architecture. Located in Batumi, Georgia, this combination gas station/McDonald's/wonderland boasts pools, cantilevered glass walls, and a raked indoor garden. The building was designed by the Georgian firm Khmaladze Architects and was completed in October 2012. Architizer reports the designers' goal was "to create an iconic urban node." Looks like mission accomplished from the pictures below.
