Ray's in the City Restaurant Review

: Instead of the Chattahoochee River, which laps past flagship Ray's on the River, Ray's in the City looks out onto the ebb and flow of Peachtree Street. Depending on the table you choose, you can feel a part of the urban environment, or take a seat at the sushi/oyster bar or settle into a corner of the sophisticated space and just chill. Fresh seafood may be grilled, broiled or blackened, and served with a selection of fish-friendly sauces. Insist that your fish be cooked to the desired doneness, as occasionally the kitchen will slip up, and produce well-done tuna steaks when medium is called for. Chicken and steaks also are available for any non-fin fanciers. For dessert, target the Key lime pie, packed into a toasted macadamia nut and coconut graham cracker crust. The wine list has been enhanced and offers greater depth and breadth than it once did. It satisfies many needs, with selections largely from California, Italy and France, and including both reasonable values and big ticket choices, such as Screaming Eagle, and a lineup of large format bottles. Sak├ęs to go with your sushi and numerous dessert wines are offered. Happy hour from 3 p.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday at the bar only features half-priced appetizers and specialty drinks.
