YOUR PICKS

1) MF Sushi in Buckhead and Midtown

You say, “Hands down the best sushi is at MF Sushi, The sushi there tastes fresh in comparison to other places I even eaten in Atlanta. I prefer the location on Ponce. The Buckhead location is a nice place to take a gathering of friends.”

OUR PICKS

1) MF Buckhead

Dining critic Meridith Ford Goldman says, “MF Buckhead has done something that no other restaurant in Atlanta has ever done on such a grand scale. Its 8,000 square feet of jaw-dropping space has finally combined the big, bold Buckhead look that Atlanta loves with an absolutely incomparable dining experience. No detail — from the perfect thickness of the wooden chopsticks to the amazing sake list — has been ignored. But it is the sushi bar — and incredibly fresh fish cut perfectly — that is the beating heart of this restaurant.”

On a scale of 1 to 10, the best sushi in Atlanta may rate a 7. Maybe on a good day. Most Atlanta sushi blows (Mazui!). Haru Ichiban and Nakato are the best in the metro area. If the sushi man doesn’t speak Japanese, you aren’t eating top quality sushi. Atlanta’s lack of plentiful fresh seafood exacerbates the problem.

Best sushi in the world? Not Nobu or any of those high tone joints. In my opinion, Hibiki, an old timey place in Kagurazaka – a hilly, centuries old neighborhood in Tokyo, Japan. Indescribably delicious, super fresh and made with the best ingredients available to mankind. Take a native speaker with you and have the best meal of your life.

I discovered the BEST, FRESHEST sushi in Doraville – Sushi House Hayakawa. This restaurant serves the freshest & the tastiest sushi in Atlanta. It replaces the Soto Sushi restaurant in Buckhead 2 years ago. You will know how good a Japanese restaurant is by watching how much Japanese are in there. Plus you will see a bunch of familiar gourmet food customers in this restaurant. Good are excellent & is beyond written descriptions. You have to taste the creations from this chef.
