Atlanta Downtown Restaurant Week- July 24-30

The annual Downtown Atlanta Restaurant Week is slated for July 24-30, where diners can enjoy a three-course dinner for $26. For more info on the event and a list of participating restaurants, go to http://www.atlantadowntown.com/HavingFun_RestaurantWeek.asp.

Being a downtown workerbee, I definitely want to take advantage of this event. But, as nothing is jumping out at me as to where to go, I could use a little help. There is a part of me that wants to experience B.E.D., given the theme and all. But is that really where an out-of-shape, married 38-year-old really needs to be? Besides, I heard the food was iffy. I am also disheartened that most places fall into one of the following three categories: A) a chain I have eaten at way too often (McCormick's & Schmicks), B) overpriced hotel restaurants (too many to mention), or C) are places I would never spend $26 in to being with (Mick's). Please tell me there is a gem in this list that I am glossing over.

Why can't there be Buckhead Restaurant Week with Nava, Chops, Pricci, NY Prime, Blue Pointe and Hal's. How about Midtown Restaurant Week with Oceanaire, the Globe, One Midtown Kitchen, Mid City Cuisine and Table 1280? Or "Not Quite Midtown" Restaurant Week with Bacchanalia, Two Urban Licks, Rathbun's, and MF Sushi. Someone really needs to get on that one.

I saw the poster for that at Ted's this afternoon. We went there for a business lunch, and I must say i was underwhelmed. What grossed me out was that the vinyl tablecloths didn't even look wiped down. I think all they did was change out the brown paper they put on top! bleah!

Try Dailey's on International. I've been to Daily's downstairs, and that was pretty tasty.

We went to Pacific Kitchen last night and it was above our expectations. We consider that more of Inman Park than downtown Atlanta, but nevertheless were happy to see it on the list of restaurants. It was a quaint atmosphere (a converted house) off of a side street with a great patio. The raspberry creme brulee was out of this world. Good luck

Read your take on Atlanta Downtown. Very good. They should have a Buckhead Restaurant Week. Pricci's, Buckhead Diner, Atlanta Fishmarket etc. Throw in Fago de Chao and Ray's in the City and I would be a happy camper. I also read your take on Dantanna's. My brother when he was down here for a year and a half getting his Masters Degree swore by the place. The food was generally okay. I just think he had a thing going on with one of the waitresses!! Live long and eat happy!!
