near the world of coca-cola, is that midtown?
That's downtown. I'd check out Empire State South if you're ok with spending around $30-40. LINK
That's up in midtown, which isn't too far, but you can take Marta if you don't want to walk or have to drive and pay for parking. It's about a block from the midtown station on the north/south line, which is close to the world of Coke too.
If you want to stay near there though, it's mostly chains like McCormick and Schmicks. Dantanna's in the CNN center isn't bad and you'd be able to watch bball there. It's a pretty good sports bar, as well as Stats, which is close by.
Another option, if you have the time, would be to take Marta to the Decatur square(maybe a 15 minute ride at most). There are several great lunch spots there - Brickstore(amazing beer selection), Leons(great beer - Brickstore guys own it), 246(Italian), Cakes and Ale(Upscale American/Southern), Siam(Thai), Mac Magees(Pub)
