    The past 3 years, I've seen a good many posts, comments, jeers, wishes, etc. all regarding sushi dining while at ProgPower USA, so I thought this warranted its own post.

    Glenn and I do not live in Atlanta, which sometimes makes restaurant recommendations difficult. But we have done our research and want our attendees happy! :)

    Sushi lovers may want to check out:

    Had the all-you-can-eat sushi at Shout! Somewhat limited selection, but varied enough for me. Fast service and a whole lot of sushi for a very reasonable price.

    If you're serious about sushi and are willing to spend a bit more for higher quality, I highly recommend MF Sushi Bar (http://www.mfsushibar.com/). It's not exactly close to the venue, but it's easily the best Atlanta has to offer. This was my wife and my "occasion" place for anniversaries, etc. when we lived in GA. Sit at the bar and ask the chefs for recommendations, and they'll usually throw some cool surprises your way. Damn I miss that place.

    Fair warning for those that go to Ra, it is a corporate chain restaurant and its like eating a night club. Theres super loud techno playing all day. Though they clearly hire their waitresses based how good they look with as little clothes as possible which is a plus in my book ;)

    Atlanta is not exactly a sushi paradise. In fact, I would not consider any of the recs so far in this thread to be amazing.

    If you have a car, there are options..

    Sushi House Hayakawa on Buford Highway is very good:

    If you are willing to go even further out and don't mind a trip to the suburbs, Haru Ichiban in Duluth off 85 is probably the best sushi I have had in the metro area.

    Thank you for the recommendations Jen. Since I am staying an extra day this year, I will have to check them out.

    All of the restaurants listed within this thread are within 3 miles of the venue, as the vast majority of attendees do not have a car and have limited time for dining. Also, I believe the average attendee doesn't expect to be amazed with their restaurant choices, but rather with the musicians on stage.

    If this is the place in Buckhead I think this might be the place me,Van Dyk,Crooks,and Lotesto went to
    easily the best sushi in Atlanta,in fact,rivals the best I have had
    and it is very expensive(I rang up a $95 bill myself,but worth it)

    The all you can eat Sushi at Shout! is worth it. As AMBR said, the selection is limited, but what you get is really good.

    Did you try that seared white tuna with truffel soy sauce I got like 3 orders of($10 a pop for 2 pieces,and every bite worth it)?

    I think I officially found my new place to blow large sums of $$ to replace the Cheetah
    and I get more out of it

    When we stayed at the Inn at the Peachtrees there was a Marta stop close by. Just above that stop was a few places to eat set up kinda like a food court at a mall... There is a sushi joint in there that at first I was frightened to consider eating at but there was a line of 10 - 15 people so I dared... and it was AMAZING and cheap.

    I have to make it a point to go back this year...

    Do you think it was Colony Square? They have a Moes, Chick-fil-A, Starbucks, Blimpie, Great Wraps, and Shout! (the place that has a $10 sushi lunch).

    This is where a lot of Japanese ex-Pats as well as travelling asian business folk get their sushi fix in Atlanta.

    If you time it right, it is not a crazy drive from the venue. Their Friday lunch offerings are typically in the $10 realm, and are very good. I used to live/work in Duluth, and this place was a weekly stop for me.

    I have never eaten at Shout! but I have dined often at its sibling Twist!, and can recommend this family of restaurants.
