The old- and new-money neighborhood of Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia, has become a fine-dining destination for both locals and Hollywood stars in recent years. The Japanese modern restaurant Umi is one reason why.
Chef Fuyuhiko Ito of Umi tells Where Hollywood Eats, “We opened up our door almost five years ago and almost instantly we got so busy. It was always a moment.”
According to Ito, the restaurant’s main focus, serving customers, is based on the Japanese hospitality method called Omotenashi, which promotes self-sacrifice in service to one’s guest. “Using this method, we create the best service and final product.”
