Hello Atlanta and fellow ChowHound users...
I will be attending a national convention in Atlanta the first week of July. There are a number of foodies in my party and one of our favorite things to do at this annual convention is to plan out our dinners for the week, getting as complete a picture of that city's best as we can. We were in D.C. last year and had a blast because of the outstanding recommendations from ChowHound. I'm sure the same will hold true for this year!
No cuisine is off-limits. We are staying right off of Centenial Olympic Park and will only have MARTA and taxis available as transportation. No restrictions on meal cost, but no one is a big fan of the $150 dinner. We did a Jose Andres chef menu last year and it was worth it, but wasn't $150!
We're interested in hidden gems, must-haves, etc. Folks are especially fond of Asian cuisine and real southern food, so hopefully the latter can certainly be accomodated. Any other recommendations are appreciated.
