Will be spending several days in Atlanta in the near future and am looking for feedback on some food options I'm considering. Am especially interested in hitting some classic Southern regional cuisine places. Will be staying in Midtown by the Fox Theater and will not have a car, but am fine with taking MARTA and the bus as long as the area's safe to walk around.
1. Yeah, I'm going to try the Varsity once -- will stick to chili/slaw dogs, onion rings, a frosted orange, and maybe a fried peach pie.
2. for Southern regional, am considering at least two of Mary Mac's Tea Room, The Colonnade, and Thelma's Kitchen, all of which seem to be well liked on this board. Am seeing mixed things about Horseradish Grill and Flying Biscuit here.
3. looks like Cafe Sunflower is good for vegetarian dishes, Fat Matt's for BBQ, and Atlanta Fish Market for seafood.
Anything else that's a must?
