irori sushi in marina del rey?
anyone been to this sushi place? is it any good
Irori is great. I really enjoy the food as well as the ambience. I like sitting in the 'holes'. They have very fresh, tasty and creative foods.
On another note, does Sushi Zo have a lunch special? I had the spanish mackerel there as well and it was the best I've ever had.
I believe that the owner-chef at Irori was one of the long-time chefs at Hide Sushi on Sawtelle. Can someone confirm this?
When he left Hide, things really began to change at Hide. The last several times I have been there, the quality has not been the same as it was perhaps a year ago. I had a salmon skin salad that was sparse on the salmon skin. Also, the service is just okay.
after reading several threads and receiving personal rec from another foodie, i set out for Irori last nite with high hopes.
we had a great time, but contrary to common reports, the omakase ended at @ $65/pp and was fluffed with too many cooked dishes, majority of which were mediocre and EXTREMELY oversalted.
we loved the senior sushi chef and his profferings, we loved the room, the attentive staff and sushi/sashimi. i'm just curious about everyone's experiences with the cooked items. this place is just no Tama.
