I am a foodie who lives in Atlanta. I love four-star restaurants and small portions. Lately, however, Japanese food has become my favorite.
Atlanta is low on non-sushi Japanese food, although omakase at MF Buckhead (www.mfbuckhead.com) rivals Masa in many ways.
I plan to stay in the City for a week and eat all the Japanese food I can. I would prefer to eat omakase at sushi bars/go other places with modest portions. I don't need the places to be fancy, but I also don't like to visit places who aren't exacting about the integrity of their ingredients.
So . . . based on this:
1. Should I stay somewhere in Midtown? Is that where all the good sushi places are located?
2. What are people's top ten high quality, no-expense-considered Japanese restaurants in the City?
3. is there any place that offers a traditional tea ceremony?
4. I will be taking this vacation solo due to the illness of my usual traveling companion. Would anyone be willing to dine with me and show me the ropes?
