Urasawa in Photos, or, My First Post

Long time lurker, first time poster here.

What better way to start off on Chowhound than with a photo essay of one of the most famous restaurants in LA...

What was funny was that when Urasawa saw me taking out the camera, he asked if I was going to post the photos on Chowhound. I wasn't planning to originally, but look at me now lol.

            I have always longed to know what goes on inside L.A.'s sushi mecca. Now I know! And definitely want to go. Thank you so very much for sharing it with us. A couple questions - is it a set price or is there just a minimum of $250 per person (or is it more?) I doubt I could eat all that you were served, so I wondered whether people tell them when to stop or not.

              Thanks Megan! From everything I've seen, the "normal" set price is indeed $250pp. However, I've heard unconfirmed reports that it can go higher if there are "special" items, such as fugu. With regard to your second question, we actually told Urasawa to stop, but not because we were full, but out of courtesy (we could've finished his entire case of fish that night if we had kept going!). Actually, I found that it wasn't that much food and could have gone for a Double-Double afterwards, with plenty of room to spare. ;)

                Does the $250 normal price include drinks/sake?

                  Unfortunately it does not. Evian was $8 a bottle and I don't think they serve tap water. Take a look at the wine/sake list I posted for an idea of the prices. I believe we paid around $150 for sake while the Dom I brought myself; no corkage is nice.
