Hello. I'm from Seattle, but I have a 3 1/2 hour connection in Atlanta coming up on Wed. December 20th. I'd love to quickly MARTA to a great dinner spot and back. I should be able to board the train at Airport station at 8pm and I should be back at the Airport by 10pm. If I were to go someplace around 5 Points that would give me 40 miutes of total MARTA travel time, 20 minutes of total walking time and 1 hour to eat. Sounds perfect. I'm really excited to eat in Atlanta for the 1st time.
I'm looking for a place that is really great at about $15/entree (or less if it's great). And a place that's within a 10 min. walk from an Airport line MARTA stop.
Zagat's recommended this place quite highly:
Les Fleurs De Lis Cafe
57 Forsyth St (Walton St.)
Atlanta, GA 30303
I'm not sure I can cross reference the MARTA map with the map of the recent "top 50" Fall Dining Guide (http://www.accessatlanta.com/news/con...) but it seems like these restaurants might be near train tracks, if not MARTA stops:
Lobby At Twelve
361 17th Street Inside Twelve Hotel at Atlantic Station
Eclipse di Luna
764 Miami Circle N.E.
1123 Zonolite Road N.E., Suite 15
75 5th St. N.W.
Do any of these seem to be perfect for my purposes? Do you have any other such places you could highly suggest?
I would really appreciate your help. I hope to return to Atlanta for more time in the future, but for now, I want to get as much of taste of Atlanta as I can on this ambitious layover.
