Just finished a terriffic meal at Jinpachi in West Hollywood. Parking is a little difficult, but if you can find a space, it’s definitely worth it. We’ve been to many great sushi restaurants, here and in Japan, and this place is up there with the best. It’s traditional Japanese sushi, so don’t expect crazy Rock ‘N Rolls. Instead, perfect bite-sized pieces of pampered fish on luke-warm, loose-textured rice. Best to let Taka pick a few pieces for you. Very good and descriptive sake selections, great sashimi (we had the Octopus carpaccio and shimaaji), delectable desserts. Not for the sushi amateur, but if you can appreciate the subtleties of great sushi, this is the place for you.
