I've been doing a lot of traveling and when you travel all you want to do is come home...when you're at home all you want to do is travel. I'm trying to appreciate this home stretch in Atlanta after leaving Miami, Jacksonville, and Hoover, Alabama. From late night editing to flying in from different time zones, finding late night food becomes a priority.
Bon Ton is in walking distance of my apartment stays open to 2 am and serves New Orleans style seafood. Gumbo, Po' Boys, crab legs and all that.
My favorite place to post up for a comfortable meal that makes you feel like you worth something in life is Marcel in West Midtown. I try to blur out business crowd on the weekdays and focus on the old school boxing decor. It definitely feels like a place Rocky would eat after knocking someone out. ( Richer Rocky...not the poor Rocky.) It's really a french steak house with a 1930's vibe. I appreciate the dark lighting and they wrap up at 2 am on Fridays and Saturdays.
A late night neighborhood favorite is J.R. Crickets on North Ave a few blocks from my place. Billy Sorrels put me on to the Sanchez flavored chicken wings and my J.R. Crickets experience has forever been changed for the better. The midtown location closes at 2 am.
And when all else fails and you need a hearty good meal that isn't Waffle House...you take yourself to R Thomas on Peachtree...the main Peachtree. They've been doing things organic thanks to an owner with a heart and they go 24/7.
