a lot of hype over a sandwcih that's quite frankly not the best of Philly. It's like the Hard Rock Cafe of cheesesteaks... sure there's bright lights and a ton of celebrity sightings, but at the end of the day, the food just ain't that great. They don't chop their steak on purpose but most of the time I've been here, it was for a late night eat after a night of being out and about, so I don't need the 1-piece steak.. Bread's not anything crazy either. Don't hold up the line when you order!

This place was hot hot hot, when it first opened opened opened. Now, it has settled in as one of Atlanta's quality dining establishments. I have been here numerous times to eat, drink, and chill. But for some reason, the more I go, the less I like it. The service has never been stellar, but definitely above average. And the ambiance is cool, but it has to be the whitest restaurant in Midtown. I've gone in many times and been the only Brotha in the place. Once, no big deal, but 3 and 4 times is a little strange for Midtown Atlanta. I've seen more color at the symphony. Also, their vegan options suck. I can always at least create a vege plate at most places, but almost everything there is drenched with butter, cheese, or some variation of meaty creamy....well, you get it.....and I know that most like it. I would definitely go back for a liaison over drinks, but my desire to frequent this place has faded like a hollowing voice breathed into a canyon. BTW - I know 'ecco' is a reference to an Italian toast; I'm just a fan of homophones.

Easily the best Japanese restaurant I've ever been to. Tonight my bf and I had the $120 Omakase tasting menu, which consists of 8 courses. The first four are from the sushi bar, fifth is a palate cleanser, next two are hot dishes and last is dessert. Everything was so delicious and we were lucky enough to meet Morimoto himself! We were also lucky to get an additional sushi course and sparkling wine with sorbet, compliments of management. 1st Course: Bluefin Tuna Belly Taratare I love the mix of flavors and textures in this dish. The softness of the fish, crunchy bits, along with the sweet and saltiness of the sauce and spicy wasabi makes this so unique and yummy! 2nd Course: Kumamoto Oysters Very mild, tender and plump oysters served 3 ways. So delicious! 3rd Course: White Fish Carpaccio with Yuzu Soy and Hot Oil Mild fish with light sauce seasoning 4th Course: Yellowtail Salad with Yuzu Dressing Combination of flavors were so good! 5th Course: Cranberry Yuzu Soda Shot A palate cleanser with some fizz. Interesting, though I was expecting it to be maybe a little sweeter. 6th Course: 8 Spice Lobster Epice Wow, the spices from the seasoning is amazing! The lobster was cooked tender and comes with a yummy creme fraise yuzu dipping sauce. 7th Course: Kobe Beef Sirloin Cooked medium rare and was nice and tender. 8th Course: Chocolate Pumpkin Mousse So good I practically licked my plate clean! Can't wait to come here again!
