Front Burner: Food News You Can Eat

genkiGenki Noodle and Sushi has opened a new location in the Prado Shopping Center on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs. I did not go to the opening party last week even though it had sumo wrestling and sake bombs, which as you know, is the very definition of a good time. (5590 Roswell Road,  404-843-8319)

In other news:

  • Food historian Andrew F. Smith, author of “Eating History: Turning Points in the Making of American Cuisine” (Columbia University Press) will speak tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Atlanta (1927 Lakeside Parkway, Tucker) in a program organized by the Culinary Historians of Atlanta. According to the program notes, Smith will discuss “the bold inventors, savvy restaurateurs, ruthless advertisers, mad scientists, adventurous entrepreneurs, celebrity chefs, and relentless health nuts” who have fashioned the “crackerjack history behind the way America eats.” Sounds interesting.
  • Cliff Bostock ate this. Yuk.
  • Midtown Atlanta Shop and Dine week continues through November 22. Participating restaurants are offering $25 fixed price offerings. Read all about it.

John,
Missed opening also, but as a regular at 5 Seasons I had to stop by to check it out after dinner. Staff and Mgmn’t. are outstanding for a new shop. They are still tweaking the menu for lunch, I was there around late dinner time & the manager asked for my opinion, I’m known around town as a bit of a foodie. While there, he provided me with one of their signature dishes, the Ginki Tuna Roll, a large center cut tuna fillet, seared in spices and presented sushi role style with a wonderful ponzu dipping sauce. in my 55 years I have been blessed with the opportunity of eating in some of the finest restaurants around the world. I pray it was not an anomaly, but I have to say that was one of the twenty best dishes I have ever put in my mouth. My only wish is I had forfeited a couple of pints earlier so I could describe it in more detail, but I think I will return this evening to remedy that. If that dish is any example of the rest of their food, this is a true diamond for Sandy Spring dinners. GO! Do not pass go and you won’t need $200.00.
