Sorry to report I haven't been to any of these. We live in the suburbs.
I did get a positive email from the Varsity. It is a car-hop hot dog place in Atlanta within walking distance from where you will be staying. It's an Atlanta institution, if you like chili dogs.
I asked about nuts, seafood and eggs. The chili, hot dogs and buns are safe for all of the above. The onion rings do have egg. And they do make chicken salad and tuna salad at some locations, so you need to be careful if you have an egg allergy/seafood allergy.
Fellini's is pizza is a good, local outdoor walk-up pizza joint, but it may be too cold to enjoy this weekend. But I have not eaten there since my nut allergy kicked in a couple of years ago, so you would have to call ahead.
Sorry, I'm not much help. We never made it to Veni, Vedi, Vici even before we had a child, and my allergies became so extreme.
Many of the southern-style restaurants a dripping with pecan-encrusted dishes, so be careful if you're avoiding tree nuts.
Stay away from Chik-Fil-A (peanut oil).
Good luck, and bring an umbrella and a coat,

Can't help you with this except to say that watch out for peanut oil in the South. They seem to use alot more of it than they do here.
Before my baby was diagnosed he had a ring rash that I was SURE was Lyme disease. In retrospect, it must have been the nuts and peanut oil from the southern soul food place we kept eating at. (I was happy to shovel the collards and sweet potatoes to baby).
What area is your hotel in?
