Each evening from Wednesday through Saturday, The Lobby Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead offers a special sushi and craft cocktail menu from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. The menu is a well-kept secret among foodies who live and work in the posh Atlanta neighborhood, but word is starting to spread. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s sushi menu is full of inventive rolls that draw inspiration from the hotel’s luxurious history, as well as its enviable street address — try the Ritz roll (spicy tuna topped with tuna and red caviar) or the Peachtree roll (smoked salmon, cream cheese and cucumber), or enjoy classic varieties like the California roll, crunch crab, spicy tuna or spicy scallop roll. Nigiri and sashimi plates are offered as well. And be sure to request the exclusive Carlton roll (spicy tuna and cucumber, topped with tuna, avocado, salmon and red snapper), a specialty roll that’s not on the menu.
Since nothing suits an upscale plate of sushi quite like a cold, handcrafted cocktail, the luxury Atlanta hotel has created a lineup of libations that pair perfectly with the sushi menu. A refreshing mix of cucumber-infused tequila, St. Germain liqueur, fresh lime juice and soda is a crisp way to wash down a delicious seafood roll. Premium chilled sake is also available by the bottle, and there is a tidy assortment of Japanese beers from which to choose, as well.
