Koi or Matsuhisa??

My wife and I are traveling in from out of town this weekend and have one night out without our one year old son. Where should we eat Koi or Matsuhisa?

  1. Matsuhisa for sure, unless you want to feel hip and tendy and sacrifice quality.

    1. If you can get a reservation, Matsuhisa. But, good luck with that.

      1. What are you looking for? Celeb-siting? Top-quality sushi (Matsuhisa is better than Koi, but there are better sushi places in LA)?

        1. re: Jwsel

          We have a reservation at both places and are looking for great food and a fun scene. Any suggestions besides these two?

        2. Pick a sushi bar in LA at random and you will probably have better sushi than either. On the other hand if you want a scene, it seems that Koi blocks the street with more valet parked Hummers than Matsuhisa does.

          1. if i had to i would walk by both and enter neither. there are hundreds of better places in LA
