Although it is not in any way gourmet, there is nothing more "Atlantan" than The Varsity at the corner of North Avenue and Spring St.. It is a quick cab ride from your hotel. I suggest a couple of chili-dogs, a double order of 'rings, and a peach pie washed down with either an FO, a PC (they will translate for you) or a great big icy co-cola. Hope you are not prone to diabetes or arterial disease and if you spend more than $10.00 on a meal at the V, you are either starving or a glutton. Some better choices that would include a little longer cab ride are Pizza Antico Napoletana near GA Tech, I believe on Hill street right off 14th and I second the suggestion of Lunacy Black Market. If you want to spend some money and get an incredible meal, there is Miller Union , Holeman and Finch, Woodfire Grill or Abbatoir. DBA Barbecue in Virginia-highlands neighborhood is damn good and close to town. Hector Santiago's new sandwich shop below Pura Vida called Super Pan is only open for lunch Monday--Friday, located close to North Avenue and Highland Ave. just south of Ponce de Leon. This place is inexpensive and delicious beyond description. Atlanta is filled with great restaurants, just not so many in Downtown.
