Visiting the aquarium...

from NYC. Any classic southern fare nearby. Great prime rib would be a second choice.

Thanks in advance!

  1. if you just want casual lunch or breakfast, the Silver Skillet on 14th st is pretty close,and real Southern.Its realy a diner from the 60s,with the original waitrons.You can get prime rib anywheree, so dont waste your time with that.Maybe Mary Macs tea room would work as well.There is a Ruths Chris in the Embassy Suites close to CNN center---and of course for true Atlanta meal, go to the Varsity and get a chili cheese dog--much more memorable than a plain old prime rib---forget about it!!
