Looking for a good meal with lively atmosphere in Midtown or near MARTA stop

Visiting ATL for one night with a co-worker/fellow foodie. We're staying at the Renaissance Midtown and won't have a car, so are looking for a memorable meal within walking distance or near a MARTA stop. Our only criteria are lively, non-stuffy atmosphere, and reasonable pricing ($30-40/pp before drinks?). Please help make our ATL visit memorable!

  1. I enjoyed Spice Market in the W Midtown. Very cool vibe and trendy atmosphere, great patio (if you can tolerate the pollen this time of year), and everyone loved the food. It would be a great place to unwind and have a slow weeknight dinner while travelling, in my opinion. We ordered a ton of dishes and shared everything. Server gave very good recommendations too. Can't speak to the wine selection - was pregnant at the time and did not partake.

      You could walk this, or it's a very quick MARTA ride.
      Outside eating as well.
