Former Umi and MF Buckhead chef Fuyuhiko Ito to headline new Midtown sushi spots

Sozou and Omakase by Ito are expected to open in Midtown's Spring Quarter development next fall. Led by chef Fuyuhiko Ito, formerly of Umi and MF Buckhead, Sozou will be a modern Japanese restaurant with a robata grill and a sushi counter. An extension of Sozou designed for private dining, Omakase by Ito will offer reservation-only, 15-course, chef-driven meals.

Umi to open in April in Buckhead

In late 2011, Atlanta lost not one, but two of its most heralded sushi restaurants when the Kinjos brothers (Chris and Alex) closed MF Sushibar and MF Buckhead. Now, Farshid Arshid and Charlie Hendon—both frequent patrons of the MF restaurants—are hoping to bring back the same level of style and sushi with their new restaurant, Umi. Former MF Buckhead executive chef Fuyuhiko Ito will lead the kitchen, and Ito’s wife, Lisa Matsuoka Ito, will be the pastry chef.
