3.5-hr ATL Layover - Best Value MARTA-Accessible Dinner?

nico_suave | Oct 26, 2006 07:44 PM

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
Healey Building
57 Forsyth St (Walton St.)
Atlanta, GA 30303
(404) 230-9151

I'm not sure I can cross reference the MARTA map with the map of the recent "top 50" Fall Dining Guide ( 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
(404) 961-7370

Eclipse di Luna
764 Miami Circle N.E.
(404) 846-0449

Floataway Cafe
1123 Zonolite Road N.E., Suite 15
(404) 892-1414

The Globe
75 5th St. N.W.
(404) 541-1487

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.
