    Chef/owner Takao Moriuchi's Buckhead sushi bar, TAKA, is a favorite among sushi connoisseurs for its affordability, artistry and quality. He consistently sources pristine fish and manipulates it into thoughtful dishes with whimsical additions, such as red grapes in his sashimi salads. Taka also makes home-style Japanese dishes such as the (off-the-menu) sticky natto salad, crunchy curry-laced homemade vegetable and potato croquettes, and a soothing chawanmushi (a steamed Japanese egg custard with creamy uni and bright green edamame at the center). less...

It’s possible to have a truly exquisite meal here, especially if you take the time to find out what special off-menu treats the chefs are hiding behind the sushi bar.

    MF SUSHIBAR celebrates the “magic fingers” of chef Chris Kinjo, who owns the restaurant with his brother, Alex, an equally talented artist who created an L.A.-style ambiance ideal for working chopsticks while wearing black. (They also operate the equally stylish Nam.) What to order?

There’s also a great sake collection. less...
