I'll be coming to Atlanta in April, 2015, for a conference located at the Loews Hotel. I think that's what's called Midtown. Anyway, when traveling I like to know what foods are most distinctive to the area, and I also like to explore the foods of "ethnic" communities that congregate in various places (Middle Eastern in Detroit; Amish, Chinese and Italian-American in Philadelphia; Burmese in Fort Wayne; etc.).
The routine of these conferences is that we head out for dinners and sometimes lunches in groups of 4-12 persons. We can take cabs from the Loews Hotel, but on looking to the Atlanta boards, I see that the city is really spread out, like LA, so some proximity to the hotel is desirable.
Finally, I assume there are many terrific American bar-and-grill food restaurants, "fine dining," celebrity chefs, and the like, but I will not target them unless they're really distinct from the same kind of places that one could find in other major cities. I do tend to steer to the side and explore niches. In the South, I also always wonder whether BBQ or some expression of Southern cooking should be explored.
Also, I'm a cosmopolitan pizza fan and especially like genuine Napoli wood-fired pizzas.
Thanks in advance for any ideas. I know my query is kind of routine, but I have surfed the threads in this board and ended up feeling overloaded!
