Atlanta’s recent sushi restaurant boom continues with the opening of NoriFish, an omakase restaurant in Sandy Springs backed by Justin Lim and chef Sean Park of Okiboru Tsukemen and Ramen. Rather than relegating the omakase experience to the sushi bar, NoriFish offers all three of its omakase options throughout the dining room.
Led by Park, NoriFish focuses on omakase-style dining, where dishes served are left up to the chef and coursed out. Expect sushi like wild yellowtail snapper with yuzu ponzu, Serrano chili, and blood orange and striped jack fish with nikiri, pecorino Romano, and lime on the menu.
The restaurant currently offers three omakase options: the petite with nine items for $60 per person; standard with 12 items for $90 per person; and premium with 17 items for $150 per person. Fish is flown in weekly from the famed Toyosu Fish Market in Tokyo.
In addition to its three omakase menus, NoriFish features a selection of a la carte dishes such as yellowtail and salmon belly with crunchy rice, chu-toro and quail egg toast, and spicy fish tostadas, all with the option to add sturgeon caviar.
NoriFish joins a number of sushi restaurants now open or planning to open in Atlanta over the next year, including Kinjo Room and Mujo along Howell Mill Road and a permanent location for sushi pop-up Omakase by Yun.
Lim, the founder of hot chicken franchise Scoville Hot Chicken, also plans to open a second location of Okiboru Tsukemen and Ramen in the former Karma Farm space at the Aramore on Peachtree (once home to Holeman and Finch Public House) as well as a Korean steakhouse in the former Restaurant Eugene space at the condo complex.
Open Tuesday - Saturday, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
