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...

MF SUSHI is still king in Atlanta when it comes to raw fish. 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. Regular sashimi and nigiri are perfect. And if you’re curious about, say, monkfish liver, but have never trusted any place enough to give it a try, you’re in for a treat here. MF has a wonderful sake list as well. less...

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? It doesn’t much matter — the menu ranges from the extremely creative to classically simple sashimi — but be sure to get the freshly grated wasabi instead of the usual paste. There’s also a great sake collection. less...

Atlantans can throw down on some sushi. We even snap up California rolls at Publix when we’re on the fly. But when it’s time to slow up and mindfully consume this gastronomic art form, we don our black and head to perpetually hip MF SUSHIBAR. Chris “Magic Fingers” Kinjo and his crew prepare sushi with reverence while brother Alex works the room (when he’s not overseeing their other stellar venture, Nam, that is). Try some unagi (smoked eel), a lithe slice or two of kampachi (young yellowtail) and splurge on o-toro (the pricy fatty tuna belly). Let the focused servers direct you to the freshest picks, but if the Godzilla roll is a special of the day? Wrestle that monster. less...

What one expects from RuSan's cooked entrees, one gets in triplicate from the vast selection of sushi delicacies. RuSan's can be counted on for adding nouveau touches to traditional Japanese fare so that the uninitiated can sidle up to the bar alongside the veteran and sample rolls with cooked fish and vegetable tempura or even escargot in garlic sauce. The atmosphere is completed by the endearing and irreverent shrieks of sushi chefs ready to educate or merely serve up boats of raw eel and smelt roe to those who know their wasabi from their ginger. less...

The closest thing in Atlanta to culinary group sex is sitting at Chef Sotohiro Kosugi's sushi bar. You will literally hear people moaning as they sample some of the most remarkable, delicately complex food in our city. We issue the same warnings we did last year: Call and make a reservation to eat at the bar (because table service is not good). Eat here once, and nobody else's sushi will ever satisfy you again. less...
