UMI Sushi

My friend Lisa is a real sushi maven.  She travels a lot and eats sushi everywhere she goes.  Thus when MF Sushi closed, Lisa mourned, but she has been eager to try UMI Sushi, located near Chops at Peachtree and West Paces Road, where Fuyuhiko Ito (with his wife, pastry

Atmosphere: BoccaLupo’s humble exterior makes GPS a necessity for finding this hidden gem located towards the Inman park neighborhood on Edgewood.  The parking is located around back, and the outdoor seating area is relaxing and quiet.  I felt almost like being at a country club with a dash of hipster.

The General Muir

The General Muir: A Jewish Sensation I’ve been to most Deli’s here in Atlanta and I’ve obviously been to Katz’s deli in New York City, but The General Muir is different.  It’s a modern deli with a similar atmosphere to The Optimist in the sense that it is very open,
