Thank goodness, Downtown Atlanta dining is slowly, but surely making a comeback. And this outpost of the legendary Ruth Fertel's New Orleans Steakhouse, does not let us down. Located directly across from CNN Center, in the Embassy Suites Hotel, it gives all the new tourists some place to dine, rather than going all the way to Buckhead. The filets, on sizzling platters w/butter are superb. The creamed lyonnaise potatoes are terrific. New Orleans seafood is available also. Start with the extra spicy jumbo shrimp cocktail. Any steak can be prepaired with asparagus, crabcakes, and Bernaise Sauce, on top. If you can walk back to your room at the beautifully expanded Omni Hotel across the street. We are locals, and just love to go to Downtown Atlanta, for one of the top steakhouses in the country. Service and wine pairings are tops.
Pros: Prime Sizzling Steaks, Drenched In Butter! Downtown Dining!
Cons: Parking Can Be A Hassle, If From Out Of Town!
