Will be visiting Atlanta, Emory University for a conference, for a week next Sun-Fri from San Diego. No car, probably with colleagues in tow for some meals, but mostly solo. Meals, by and large, will be supplied by the conference, but I more than willing to skip conference food for a reasonable walk (up to 1.5miles) to visit some local chow. I'm sure there are local faves, but no need to suggest Mexican, Sushi, or Burgers - all are well over-represented here in SD.
My colleague traveling with me is South Indian and has already bookmarked a visit to Saravana Bhavan - good or bad, she's been before and it will be on the itinerary.
Otherwise, have scoped these places from the board - all more or less beside Emory or in Decatur - would be willing to rent a car 1-2 days for worthwhile quick food trips, but the conference is way too packed for any long excursions.
BBQ - Community Q BBQ / Maddy's
Local/Farm-to-Table - Cakes & Ale / Farmstead 303 / Floataway Cafe(?)
Breakfast - Flying Biscuit Cafe
Sandwiches - Super Pan Latino Sandwich Shop (looks a little far by foot, but looks really good/different)
Thanks for the help!
