Wife there on business for the week. Wondering if anyone had any suggestions on good food places. Staying at Embassy Suites. Most important thing is safety, but anything good within reasonable walking distance or short cab/Uber ride would be appreciated.

TIA for any ideas.

Maggiano's in Buckhead has excellent Italian food.

Best advice I can give (if you're staying in downtown/midtown Atlanta and you're talking about the Embassy at Olympic Park) is to hit the Chick-fil-A right there, then load-up the car, get on Peachtree Street and head north until you hit the 75/85 through-town north ... take that until you hit I-20 West then stay on that until you are as far away from Atlanta as you can get.

Otherwise go eat in Buckhead somewhere (you should have stayed at that Buckhead Embassy Suites instead) ... but avoid the Marta stations at night when the criminal thugs are using them for ingress and egress into the area before and after committing their crimes.

Max Lager's Wood Fired Grill and Brewery was pretty darn good when I stayed in ATL back in August.

It might not be what you're looking for, but The Varsity is a downtown Atlanta staple. If you're there for a week you should hit it for the nostalgia at least.

What'll ya have?

And if you go, don't get in line until you know what you want. Otherwise, when you get to the front, that person behind the counter will holler, what'll ya have, and if you don't respond, they'll look over you and take the next order behind ya.
The peach ice cream there used to be good, the onion rings might kill ya, but they're good. The dogs are hot and served by the millions!

Buy a little red wagon- - - - -can't carry enough ammo to visit Atlanta without one! Back when I was traveling 9 southeastern states to do automotive warranty claim inspections I stopped doing any business within 50 miles of ATL, 4 years ago.

My wife liked Mary Mac's tearoom, which by the name I expect you can guess is fit out to appeal to women.

I have had excellent oysters at The Optimist so if anyone going digs those it would be a good stop.

Also I think the original Cafe Intermezzo location is in Midtown, if you enjoy coffee with liquor in it.

Try the Blue Ridge Grill off Paces Ferry Rd. Good regional Southern food.

Never been, so, can’t advise.

Will refrain from smart-ass posting.

In all seriousness, I think Atlanta is one of maybe 3 or 4 US cities that The Michelin Guide actually rates places, so it’s gotta have some kind of legit dining options going on.

Worth a look. Expensive, but very good.

KG!

Haven’t been there in a couple decades, but a quick google said it’s still open and popular.

Fat Matt’s Rib Shack.

Used to be a pretty cool joint for pork and beer not too far from midtown.

I’m way wrong.

No Atlanta in Michelin.

Sorry, enjoy.

Best way to dine in Atlanta is to catch a commuter flight up to Charleston.

They don’t do anywhere north of NYC area on the East coast.

You might eat at the Varsity for nostalgia but certainly not the food quality. I gave it a 2nd chance and it was terrible then too!
The advice about taking plenty of ammo then getting as far north from Atlanta was as good as you’ll get.
Good luck to you!
