Midtown restaurant recommendations?

Need a recommendation for a restaurant in the midtown Atlanta area. Looking for great food and great atmosphere. Price isn't an object, but I'm not looking for a white table cloth kind of place. Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

    I like the Vortex for burgers (fun atmosphere, too), South City Kitchen, Tierra, and Tamarind Seed. I also like to sit at the bar (it wraps around the open kitchen) at 2 Urban Licks. That place is a zoo/scene on the weekends and loud but it's fun to watch the chefs cook.

      Vortex in little 5 is the real deal, don't be fooled by the one in midtown! Little 5 is very close as well. I think you will get better food in virginia highlands versus midtown. I would go for highland tap if you want steaks, 4th and swift if you want awesomeness, or try Agave if you want something unique to the east coast.

      check out Ecco and Veni Vidi Vici [No. Italian]. Ecco is very popular and can get a little loud, is less formal, good 'small dishes' options. Classy seafood at Oceanaire.
