Where Marvel stars like to hang out in Atlanta

Marvel's been busy in Atlanta lately, filming "Avengers: Infinity War" earlier this year before launching production on the next "Avengers" installment in addition to "Ant-Man and the Wasp." Meanwhile "Spider-Man: Homecoming" was among this summer's blockbuster releases and "Black Panther" is due out next year.

So .. where do all the super-hero stars like to hang out in Atlanta when they have a little downtime?

This sleek sushi spot in Buckhead is a favorite among visiting and resident diners of note. (Falcons QB Matt Ryan says it's his and wife Sarah's favorite date-nite spot). It's a go-to spot for Captain America and the Black Widow, too.  Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson dined there not long ago and feasted on crispy rice, avocado salad, shimaaji aburi, otoro tartare, a spicy tuna box and an Umi steak. Johansson sipped a margarita and Evans chose Jameson Irish Whiskey.

Especially when Cirque du Soleil pitches a tent, as is the case now. RDJ and Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor, each took in “Luzia: A Waking Dream of Mexico” by Cirque du Soleil recently. Performances take  place under the white and yellow Big Top at the Atlantic Station through Nov. 19 .

OK so maybe that was more of a one-off, but Chris Pratt popped by to check out the civic group's beer and wine festival

The venerable steak and seafood restaurant in Buckhead stays hopping with discriminating diners, famous and otherwise. Chris Evans enjoyed his meal so much that he launched his own line of currency there - sort of. Check out how he personalized a dollar bill to turn George Washington into Captain America!
