The numberless hordes in the surrounding high-rises have to eat somewhere. That may explain the constant crowds at the 200-seat Atlantic Grill. Yet another cog in Steve Hanson’s machine (Blue Water Grill, Dos Caminos, Blue Fin and others), it is cleanly designed and more posh than most nearby eateries. The food is agreeable, although it never delivers a knockout punch. Teriyaki sea bass over soba noodles is done better by plenty of other restaurants, and an intriguing-sounding maki roll of kobe beef, pineapple and jalapeño didn’t live up to expectations.
