Japanese Foodie Vacation 2010

filleparfaite1 | Apr 25, 2010 06:15 AM

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 ( 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?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
