Thank you so much for your interest. I had thought about Galatoire's but wondered about trying on a Saturday night. We will give it a try.

Thanks. Staying at the Roosevelt. Sat night, Sunday, and Mon night, Wed lunch will be out meals. Had reservations for Cochon for Sat night but they called back to offer only 6 or 10. We are driving in so I did not feel comfortable confirming 6. We like to walk but would like one out of the Quarter restaurnt but the main thing is to show my wife New Orleans. My favorite from 40 yrs ago was Mosca's but I don't want to drive there. Thanks for all the help.

Pitty Pat's Porch

Well Rock, my Mama died a few years ago or she would pu the big pot in the little for you (be glad to cook for you).

I am not an expert on downtown Atlanta. Milt (above) recommends Mary Mac's which used to be on of my favorites. I have not been there for several years. Walk to Peachtree, take Marta north bound to the North Avenue Station. Walk east to Peachtree, then north a block or so to Ponce de Leon, then east for a couple of blocks to Mary Mac's on the north side of the street. I is a meat and three type place who has been a southern cooking kind of place.

Also, take Marta north to Midtown, walk east on 10th St to Peachtree Street. Find the 999 Peachtree building and then your way in to Empire State South. New fangled southern cooking but it is good. Higher priced than Mary Mac's but comparable to most downtown restaurants.

I cannot remember the name of a local meat and three a few blocks out Marietta St from the Omni but I had some good southern cooking there. Maybe some of the hotel personnel could help.

Pitty Pat's Porch

Just had a post-counter post on another (sports) blog where the other guy took offense to my disagreeing with his recommendation of Pitty Pat's to a group of college students in town for a football weekend. Do you agree with me or disagree?

LaGrotta on Peachtree

LG Peachtree has been my favorite since my first meal there well over 20 yrs ago. You will notice little change. We dined there about two months ago for my birthday. Great evening. I support rcburli. Empire State South and Restaurant Eugene are more innovative and modern with their food and space.

Debate for a Foodie coming to Atlanta

Having read the thread, I would endorse this suggestions as a good way to enjoy foods in the area. ESS will definately give you a "new south viewpoint." Decatur squre is a good time on a rail line.
