New and Notable Sushi Mid-City/East Side?
I'm not opposed to going west - but would prefer to stay fairly close to home. I've been to R23, Sushi Gen, Sushi Go 55, Komasa, O-Masa, and many of the J-town staples. Looking for someplace new to try. We don't go in for the crazy-roll kind of joint, but we can't affort Urusawa prices either. Something with a traditional flair would be OK, up to around $100.00 per couple with drinks. Any suggestions are much appreciated. If you have favorite dishes, or details about the chefs and ambiance - that would be appreciated too.
I recommend Azami Sushi in the mid-city (Melrose east of LaBrea) area. Sit at the counter and let the chef know you're looking for "something with a traditional flair" as, IMHO, it can get fusion-y there.
