Dinner near Hilton Universal City
I've been drafted to find a great Sushi Bar or Steak and Lobster place for a business dinner for 5-6 people on a Wednesday night after a long meeting. Price can be on the high end. The Hilton is at 555 Universal Hollywood Drive and a short drive is required.
I would not go to Nozawa for a business dinner. Eating there is a hurried experience, to say the least. I don't think I've ever had a meal last longer than 15 minutes. They don't take reservations, either.
Better to go to Asanebo, which is just a little further down the street on Ventura. Or Katsu-ya. For steak and lobster, there is a Morton's in Burbank.
agree with the above poster. nozawa is no place for lingering business dinner. ASANEBO is very good. i also like TAMA.

they have cooked food as well as sushi and can be accessible to those sushi preferences on almost every level. katsu-san is a gem and a sushi master.
Well...we went to Tama and it was great!
3 of us went to dinner. None of us have had sushi that much and I think we were all sort of showed it. (for example, not knowing the response to the Japaness greeting on walking in)
based on reading this board I did know to get the Omina...(you know, the chief chose what you get). I got the $40 one.
I wish I could remember exactly what I got, but I liked them all. The one I do esp. remember is the monk fish liver. Very non-fish like. I would make a point of getting monk fish liver again.
Nice setting and friendly service. I'll go again next time I'm in the area or anythime I want good sushi.
Thanks for the chowhound advice!
Thanks a lot!! So,Asanebo or Tama for sushi. Or Mortons if we go with beef.
Are we being too limiting with only sushi/steak? Is there anything else we should consider?
