Need dinner rec for Atlanta, near Sheraton on Courtland
I will be in staying at the Sheraton on Courtland St. and will be without a car. Is there any noteworthy ethnic or New American cuisine within say 1/2 - 3/4 mile walk? Links to restaurant Web sites would be helpful.
If you like Asian, there is a nice place near the Marriott called Pacific Rim. Good sushi and a nice selection of other things (Thai, Chinese, etc.)
Very near your hotel. A couple of blocks.
Might be pushing the limit of your 3/4 mile distance, but it would be a nice walk through Centennial Olympic Park, Spoon http://www.spoonatlanta.com/ on Marietta serves up high quality Thai food in a nice setting and nice prices.
Also on Marietta, closer to CNN center is Endenu. http://www.endenu.com/ The food has been hit and miss the couple times I've been but it has a great eclectic vibe and great decor.
I ended up at the Sundial for Sunday brunch. They just started a new menu, so the one online at http://www.sundialrestaurant.com is out of date.
I had a roasted beet salad which consisted of red and yellow beets, winter greens, aged goat cheese and an ice wine vinaigrette dressing (approx $7)
For an entree I had the grilled flat iron steak w/ mushroom jus. It was served with two poached eggs with Hollandaise sauce over a red potato mash -- red, green and yellow peppers (approx $18).
Everything was very good, and I enjoyed the view of the city.
I had dinner Monday at Ecco, and everything was great. There was an hour wait for the dining room so I sat in the lounge.
Arugula and canary melon salad with shaved parmigianino and lemon herb dressing (approx $8)
Chili braised pork with garlic and homemade pappardelle ($16)
Roasted strawberries with crushed almond semifreddo ($8)
Thanks for the recommendations!
Thanks for posting your experiences. One bad thing about the numerous "I'm staying downtown and don't have a car" posts is that most folks don't report back, so it is hard to know if the advice we keep giving over and over is any good!
I personally have enjoyed the Sundial and am glad to know there is a new menu. Sunday brunch there is a great idea. Ecco sounds good as well. Have yet to make it over there.
Thanks again for the info and enjoy the rest of your stay.
