Select offerings of nigiri make up the core of the honkaku omakase experience at Sushi Hayakawa. CONTRIBUTED BY ANDREW THOMAS LEE / SUSHI HAYAKAWA
Sushi Hayakawa. Looking for arguably the most exclusive omakase service in Atlanta? Chef Atsushi "Art" Hayakawa personally guides just two diners each night through the multi-hour experience. AJC food writer Brad Kaplan described the experience in a recent story: "You sit at the counter, facing Hayakawa as he delicately slices deeply hued o-toro or precisely shapes the sushi rice so critical to each bite of nigiri...The honkaku (authentic) omakase stretches across 14 courses, driven by the market and the seasons, but always starting with a soup." The whole thing will set you back $185 per person.
