SF hound looking for Atlanta restaurants in/near downtown?

wormy | Nov 2, 2012 02:31 PM

Hello, I will be in downtown Atlanta for a conference in two weeks. After searching these boards, I know my downtown options are limited, but was hoping to get a few good suggestions for restaurants that are an easy cab/metro/walk away from downtown hotels. I will be staying at the Hilton Atlanta on Courtland St.. We will not have access to a car, and are not looking for super high end restaurants.

1) I'm looking for a group dinner location that is easy to get to, not too far away, not too pricey and has a fun atmosphere. We have one vegetarian in our group and one person who has to eat gluten-free (celiacs). Right now JCT Kitchen is top of the list, but any other is Desta Ethiopian, for example?
2) Dinner for me - I don't mind a bit more hassle to have a good meal. What should I not miss in Atlanta? Fox Bros BBQ or Community Q? How far away is Gu's Bistro? (...I do love some good szechuan food)
3) Dinner/Lunch - hassle free: anything decent close by that you can recommend? A slice of pizza perhaps, or a bowl of pho? Food carts? Downtown restaurants culled from boards: Gladys night's chicken and waffles, Juke Joint, lunch on Broad St...
