Two New York City hounds looking for nice, casual and non-touristy restaurants for dinner on Thursday and Friday. Ideally, we'd find updated southern food for at least one of them. We are in Atlanta for a conference staying downtown. We can stray a bit, but won't have a car so will be dependent on cabs. We are Top Chef fans, but does it make sense for us to go out to Buckhead for R. Blais at Home? Or can we find something interesting closer in.
Any thoughts MUCH appreciated. Will take all good suggestions, we don't need foofy, just great.
