    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 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...
