Inexpensive dining "experiences" near Marriott Marquis?
A group is traveling to Atlanta this weekend, and we'd like to eat somewhere "interesting" - not a high foodie cuisine (as we're on a budget), but an "experience". We're familiar with The Varsity, but is there anywhere else we need to check out near our base of operations, the Marriott Marquis?
Any thoughts would be most welcome
Lunacy Black Market is probably getting the most buzz in the downtown area right now that would fit your inexpensive experience criteria. It's about a 15 block walk from your hotel, but you might convince the hotel shuttle to take you there. There are some interesting options down Broad St., but most are only option for lunch. If you need lunch, I suggest Dua for pho, Blossom Tree (new Korean place on Peachtree), or Rosa's for NY style pizza. Dinner can be challenging downtown - there are a couple threads on this board about Downtown dining options that might help if you search "downtown".
