Sushinobo is the heir to Mt. Fuji Japanese Restaurant, a popular 20-year-old spot in Marietta that lost its lease on Cobb Parkway. The owners opened this new, much smaller venue in Smyrna, where there's not much else besides the sushi bar to draw your attention. "The volcano" maki roll included spicy tuna and yellowtail topped with lava-like chunks of crab in a spicy tomato sauce. The restaurant serves kushiage -- panko-coated, deep-fried, skewered goodies, and you can also order from a yakitori menu. The most interesting dish was "Magic Mushrooms," fat, fried white mushrooms stuffed with shrimp and scallops. This is a great, comparatively inexpensive place to sample a diverse Japanese menu.
Price: $$ ($10-$20)
