Are there any public atriums in Midtown that allow you to eat?

I like to eat outdoors (away from my work) but I won't be able to do this when it gets cold...

Under Rockefeller Center within the underground concourse level is an atrium area where one can eat.

The Winter Garden, but that's way downtown. It's probably the largest in the city.

I did look there and most of these "atriums" are nothing more than building lobbies with no place to sit, or outdoor places with a 2' x 2' plot of flowers.

Yea, they list whether or not they're actual plazas or if they're enclosed. My guess for your question is "no" if you're restricted to Midtown West.

Some of the smaller buildings have them. You just have to explore the neighborhood. I've temped in Midtown for years and have been in dozens of buildings. I know some had atriums. They just weren't particularly memorable. I'm sure you'll find something.
