MARTA Friendly Restaurants

Atlanta---will be coming into the airport on a Sunday around 11 am and have nearly a 10-hour layover. Am looking for a relaxing and rather upscale (but not too!) restaurant close to MARTA stop that would be serving from 1 or 2 in the afternoon. Any cuisine is fair game but don't want to spend more than about $80 for two. Less is better. Perhaps a restaurant near something that would be interesting to explore after we eat? Galleries, museum, neighborhood? Or perhaps we explore first and then eat, allowing for a restaurant that doesn't open until 4 or so. Suggestions much appreciated.

  1. FYI - there is a current thread on this board that will probably be useful to you...if I knew how to provide a link to it, I would. (sorry) I bet if you do a search for "Atlanta, MARTA" it will pop up.

    1. I had an 8-hour layover one time and went to Little Five Points! I was a young, single, 20-something person, and I was entertained for hours. Not sure if it's something up your alley though.

      1. Arts Center Station
        Table 1280 at the High Museum sounds like a good match.

          Oh, yes, and you can catch the new Georgia O'Keefe exhibit while you're there.
