Late Night Dining in Mid-Town
I will be going to Widespread Panic's twenty-fifth anniversary show tomorrow at the Fox theater. We will be staying at the Georgian Terrace. I'm thinking about hitting the Majestic Diner after the show for some late night sober up chow. I would love to hear from any Chowhounds who have dined at the Majestic.
It was a long time ago, and I too was pretty hosed, so I don't remember much about my one Majestic experience. But I still think you could do better for late-night dining. Holeman & Finch is open until 1 or so. In the same vicinity as Majestic is The Righteous Room- think their kitchen closes before they do, but their food is pretty good (potato wedges!). Not sure how late Sound Table is open during the week, but their food rocks.
There's probably something else in the Ponce corridor I'm forgetting. Oh, yeah, Krispy Kreme. Just don't let anyone eat donuts who's too plastered and then barf all over (have a friend who got to detail another friend's car as a result of too many drinks followed by ill-advised donuts).
If you venture forth to Cheshire Bridge, Taco Cabana is open 24 hr.s. Their house-made flour tortillas are thick and chewy. I'll admit that we just get their green chicken enchiladas and that's it. Hong Kong Harbour is open late, but may just be until midnight during the week. And there's always the nearest Waffle House.

The Majestic is really more for the scene than the food. And the scene doesn't really get going until around 2AM on a weeknight. Holeman & Finch is top shelf, but you'll have to go to Buckhead for that. If you haven't been there, The Varsity, the quintessential Atlanta-24/7-greasy-food "must do," is a short cab ride from the Fox. If you're not from the South, you do owe it to yourself to try Waffle House. The closest one is near the corner of 5th and Spring Streets.
re: Newcomb Girl
Just got back to Georgian Terrace after eating at the Majestic. This was my dining day: Waffle House this morning in Macon(Hometown), late lunch at the Vortex. My meal at the Majestic was two eggs over easy with corned beef has and grits. It was the perfect antidote for my over indulgence at the Widespread Panic show. There are I'm sure better alternatives but it was worth the cab ride for me.
