Umi continues to draw locals and celebrities alike. Recent sightings
include SPANX founder Sara Blakely (whose shapewear empire is
conveniently headquartered across Peachtree), “Ironman” Robert Downey,
Jr. and Jaleel White, best known for his role as Steve Urkel in the ‘90s
sitcom “Family Matters.” Described as a “very nice guy,” White dined on
Ito-kase along with a few of the restaurant’s more exotic items --
monkfish liver and sea urchin.
