After Japanese chefs pick out their favorite seafood from the day’s freshest catch, Los Angeles sushi chefs get to be next in line with their choices. Home of the best sushi in America, the San Fernando Valley boasts “Sushi Row” a cluster of restaurants dedicated to serving only the most spectacular sushi found this side of the Pacific Ocean. Katsu-ya, Nozawa, and Asanebo are a sushi lover’s dream in terms of fantastic presentation, top reviews, and superior service from the waiters on up to the famous personable chefs. The hard to find, yet beautiful Japanese garden setting of Iroha tucked away on Ventura Boulevard transports you across the seas to a quaint town in Tokyo. Wander over to the Westside to sample the succulent sashimi offered by the long-established Sushi Zo, Mori Sushi, and Kiriko restaurants. Craving a sushi fix after a long day of designer shopping in Beverly Hills? Look no further than famed Chef Nobu’s Matsuhisa and the hidden gem, Urusawa. Steer away from the tried and true California rolls and splurge for the Omakase, Chef’s special selections, and your tickled pink taste buds will thank you.
