To help weary travelers arriving in major U.S. cities late in the evening on late or delayed flights, The GO Group, the USA’s largest ground transportation company, has researched attractive late-night-dining options in six of the major cities it serves.

“Missing meals makes business travel even more exhausting,” says John McCarthy, president of The GO Group. “If a flight lands late, it’s good to know there are non-fast-food places still serving.”


Here are the late-night dining choices of the GO Group’s travel experts:

Atlanta: Midtown Tavern, 554 Piedmont Ave., open from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday to Saturday, and until midnight on Sunday. It features a diverse American menu made “from-scratch.” To learn the daily pasta and dinner specials, visit www.midtowntavern.net/news.php
