Asian, Japanese: Sushi Roku has been wowing locals and tourists alike in Los Angeles for many years, with the now-shuttered first location near the Beverly Center, followed by Santa Monica and Pasadena. All under the helm of master sushi chef Hiroshi Shima, Sushi Roku started the trend of super-sophisticated Japanese restaurants in Los Angeles, with its rock-and-roll sensibility in everything from decor to music – it's nothing like a traditional, quiet sushi spot. But the sushi and sashimi are always first rate (don't miss the seared albacore sashimi drenched in garlic ponzu) and the fusion dishes combining French and Japanese influences always satisfy. Be sure to try the signature Hanabi, spicy tuna on crispy rice. It's a fantastic taste sensation.

Gluten Free Fine Dining: Plenty of sushi and sashimi are naturally gluten free, but not a lot of sushi restaurants have tweaked their specialty items to accommodate gluten free diners. Consistently recognized as one of the best spots for sushi and Asian cuisine around SoCal, Sushi Roku has done just that and now offers a gluten free menu upon request. It includes their outrageously tasty yellowtail sashimi with diced chilies, tuna carpaccio with gluten free sesame soy and garlic chips, and a meat-eaters dream: filet mignon-wrapped asparagus. Locations in Pasadena and Santa Monica.
