MF Sushi Atlanta
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”more...
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...

For those who like it raw, there's nowhere in the city quite like MF SUSHIBAR. Fraternal dynamic duo Chris and Alex Kinjo first seduce you with the glamorous digs, then win your eternal devotion with pristine sashimi and creative, but not overblown, rolls. You feel so good after eating their food that this place can quickly become an addiction. But it's an expensive habit, so if you're on a budget, check out their less-pricey lunch specials. You've gotta splurge for the freshly grated wasabi, though. The difference will make you a convert forever. "265 Ponce de Leon Ave. 404-815-8844. www.mfsushibar.com" less...

With Buckhead's Soto closed (temporarily, we hope), the crown for the town's finest sushi passes to MF SUSHI BAR in Midtown. Chris Kinjo heads the intent-looking sushi chefs at the bar, while his black-clad brother Alex works the room. The menu consists almost entirely of sushi and sashimi. That's right - no sweet potato tempura, no miso soup and certainly no chicken teriyaki. It's Raw Fish Central. The selection is splendid, from unusual types of fish to intensely creative rolls with funky, tasty combinations. Order the freshly grated wasabi if available, and be sure to ask the staff to recommend an exquisite cold sake. "265 Ponce de Leon Ave., 404-815-8844. www.mfsushibar.com" less...

By now, most devotees of SOTO's rhapsodically original cuisine know the drill: Secure a place at the bar, scrutinize the nightly specials for intriguing concoctions (typically involving such diverse ingredients as sea urchin mousse, lobster sashimi and mango), and settle in for a slow-paced but deeply satisfying couple of hours. Ambience is nil, so absorb yourself in conversation over sake or set your attention on Chef Sotohiro Kosugi standing center stage, creating his tiny works of genius with the concentration of a Zen master.

3330 Piedmont Road 404-233-2005 Enraged impatience is a small price to pay for food that converts yesterday's sushi-phobes into today's groupies of Sotohiro Kosugi, probably one of the best sushi chefs in America. To avoid the worst service, only dine here if you can get a reservation at the sushi bar. Then sit back and feast on a nouveau version of classic sushi that might include a dash of truffle oil, a dollop of sea-urchin mousse wrapped with squid. The kitchen produces classic Japanese dishes but there are flashes of weirdness remarkable enough to make your tongue feel like a crouching tiger. 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...
