    Now, I'm not a sushi person, but my husband & friends are.

    That being said, we recently went to Tomo in Vinings (just BARELY inside 285 - it was a stretch for us to justify going there). It was INCREDIBLE. They liked it even more, since they love sushi, but even I thought the sushi was really good. The presentation is out of this world and really indicates the chef's attention to detail. The chef used to work at NoBu in Vegas.

    It is a tiny place though, so make a res or go early.

      Did you go to Taka, Global_Eater?
      I plan to have dinner there for the first time this Thursday. Soto was my all-time favorite sushi bar - I never experienced bizarro Soto-san behavior, and I'm a little offput by Taka's personal criticisms of Soto's mental health. But if the sushi is top-notch all is forgiven.

          Nakato on Cheshire-Bridge Road next to Woodfire Grill is consistantly good. Very nice garden out back as well.

            I second MF sushi...Its the best we have found after years of trying different sushi places. We've found that MF only gets really expensive when you end up drinking alot of sake- : )
            Try the albacore tuna tataki appetizer...is very fresh--Their Unagi is pretty good too-

              Taka. Taka. Taka.

              MF is good but very pricey. Taka wins on stellar dishes outside your basic sashimi and maki repertoire.

                Anywhere inside 285 ring. I was looking and thinking of MF Sushi. Thanks for any suggestions.
