There is absolutely good food outside the perimeter. Kinyobee

If I'm recommending Japanese outside the perimeter, I'm recommending Bishoku. On Pleasant Hill you also have a better option than Kinyobee in Haru Ichiban, which is in a shopping center at the corner of Pleasant Hill and Satellite Blvd.

Any of you familiar with Shoya next to the Super H Mart on Peachtree Industrial? I've been there a couple of times on the suggestion of a friend and it seems pretty good, though fairly pricey.

If what you want is a pretty fun time with decent actual Japanese food then they're pretty good. At the end of the day though if you are going for the food instead of the izakaya experience, you're better off elsewhere. I find it's best with like 8 people.

Anyone up on catering?

I am going to get married here in Atlanta sometime in the next uhhh year I guess. I'm looking for decent/good restaurants that cater or take 50+ people for a reception. I have felt pretty meh about food options my friends have gone with from locations that are expensive and require approved caterers from a list. Our thinking is that for 50 or 60 bucks a person, we can just get a shitload of food from a local restaurant that does massive takeout orders. Alternatively there are some prix fixe menus out there that would be awesome.

We have a few ideas right now but what do you guys suggest? Nothing's too unfancy, one of our ideas is Taqueria Del Sol.

I am thinking about treating the bridesmaids and groomsmen at my wedding to a fancy schmancy dinner as their wedding gift. What's the best place under 75 bucks/person where you can get people to eat without being concerned with price of what they're getting? Prix fixe works. Alternatively, the best bang for your buck and I can get them something supplemental?

'without being concerned with the price of what they're getting'?

Of course any money that doesn't get spent is a nice bonus, but I don't want my friends to feel weird about getting the 30 dollar entree that they want instead of getting the 16 dollar entree that would be alright. I'm setting this money aside so I want them to get what they actually want, regardless of the price. Menus without prices on them would work, or prix fixe, or something like that.

If 75/pp is more than I need, then where do you think the best place for a table of 8 would be? My only experience with restaurants that only list prices in whole dollars is limited only to Ecco, Woodfire Grill, and 4th & Swift so far.

Nah, fancy isn't really a dealbreaker, food quality is what it's about. I don't care if you artfully smear seasonally appropriate puree of something on my plate, if it doesn't taste good it doesn't matter. If you could taste decoration, Ru San's wouldn't need a lunch buffet.

Really what I mean by fancy is that it's a special occasion for most of my friends including myself to eat anywhere with dishes more complex than what you'd find at Front Page News or Bone Garden Cantina - not that there's anything wrong with those places at all, I'm a big fan. My standard for a good gift is something someone would like but wouldn't regularly buy for themselves, and a really good dining experience hits the spot there in my opinion.

I'm definitely interested in Restaurant Eugene seeing as they have a tasting menu right at 75, but thanks for the other suggestions too!

I tried Sprig out today and drat if it wasn't better than it was priced. The highlight was a banana pudding for dessert that was infused with some kind of bourbon flavor and made with homemade vanilla wafers. I highly recommend it.

Okay, I had a godawful week and I need some foodie therapy. I'm broke so I'd like to stay in Lawrenceville-Snellville-Lilburn ish and not spend a lot of money. My favorite sushi joint closed (Kinyobee =( ) but really anything cheap and amazing is fine.

Umaido, Haru Ichiban, and Sushi Avenue should be near you, all reasonably priced in my opinion. Kinyobee was never all that good in my opinion. I live in that area too, what kind of food are you looking for? Specifically sushi?

I went to Chai Pani yesterday with a couple of people who lived in India for years doing archaeological field work. I had the fish curry thali, they had some uddapam. Good reviews, I thoroughly enjoyed my thali was didn't have enough room to finish. They really liked it an praised the authenticity of it although they didn't like the prices because they would pay like 2 dollars for one on the street. :P

The only low point for anyone was that they thought something was off about the Limca soda.

a+++ would eat again

I loving love Shoya. And here's the super secret, too- It might look like you're intended to just order a bunch of appetizer stuff, but the entrees are also amazing. I've seen a lot of people hype up umaido in this thread for ramen, and they're good if you just want ramen and happen to be in Suwanee, but for my money Shoya's ramen is just as good if not better (I prefer Shoya's noodles)

I keep meaning to go to Local Three, especially since I love Muss & Turners so much. If any of you find yourself otp you should definitely check them out, by the way.

We have a tasting scheduled next week at Sun in My Belly, to potentially have them cater our wedding. Funnily enough we got that scheduled before we actually made it out to the restaurant to eat, but I've heard nothing but good things about them from everybody I've talked to. I'm thinking of just asking them to do a chefs choice of stuff that would be seasonal in Oct. Anyone else had their catering?

Also, is it customary to have the catering do the wedding cake as well? I figure I'll ask about their cake options next week, but if anyone has bakery suggestions I'd like to hear them. We're not going for anything too insane or ornate, I really just want it to be awesome and delicious.

When I used a restaurant to cater my wedding (Taqueria del Sol) I used a separate bakery for the cake and there was no problem with that. They each have their specializations.

I owe one of my groomsmen his gift from over a year ago, and I'm finally gonna have the opportunity to buy him a fancy dinner this Saturday. I'd like to max out at 70 dollars per person, what's the good poo poo these days? Last time I asked this question the answer was Bacchanalia, Restaurant Eugene, and some other thing I can't remember. So far we've already eaten at Woodfire Grill and 4th & Swift. I actually preferred the latter myself, even if it was half as expensive. The only caveat is he doesn't drink and can't eat pork.
