    With a new sushi chef Yoya Takahashi at the helm of the omakase counter, the level of sushi gets a major upgrade from the more roll-centric offerings on the menu. Takahashi's pedigree ensures a sharp eye of top-quality, seasonal fish.

    This high-end spot in West Hollywood has fantastic quality in their omakase, but also has some more "affordable" chirashi bowls that make this an ideal place to stop by during lunch.

    This no-frills spot in Hollywood eschews some of the more off-the-wall rolls and such in this area and stay true to simple nigiri, basic rolls, and sashimi. Friendly service, and a rotating selection of seasonal fish.

    The waits can be crushing at this popular Little Tokyo sushi spot, but it might very well be worth the excellent spicy tuna rolls, salmon skin rolls, and fresh nigiri sushi served in small confines.

    One of the original sushi bars in America, this popular Little Tokyo destination still makes very good sashimi and sushi. The yellowtail, salmon, live shrimp, and toro are especially well done here.

    The omakase here yields bluefin toro, uni, gizzard shad, and yellowtail. Chef Ike-san carefully crafts nigiri and other dishes right before diners, leading to a better than expected experience in this part of town.

    The rice is seasoned perfectly and the fish, hand-selected by Nozawa, might be as good could be at this price point. With locations in Brentwood, Studio City, Downtown, and Marina Del Rey.

    This pricey West Hollywood sushi spot stands against the roll-tempura-centric places in the area. The blue crab hand roll, unagi, toro, and uni are excellent. A purist sushi restaurant in a most unlikely location.
