If you haven’t stopped in for a meal at one of Downtown Atlanta’s restaurants, this is the perfect week to do so. Twenty-seven restaurants — including Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, 30 Tables, Atlanta Grill at the Ritz-Carlton, Hard Rock Cafe and Thrive — are taking part in Downtown Atlanta Restaurant Week 2009 now through Aug. 9. The deal is simple: a three-course dinner for $25 per person (not including tip or tax). A full list of the participating restaurants and menus can be found at this link.
