black cod

I like the black cod at Shin Jung but sometimes Korean's a bit much-- I'd love to know of other black cod spots, especially mid-Wilshire on east.

    Try the black cod at Saito's Sushi on Sunset Blvd. east of Hillhurst.

      Northeast corner of Wilshire and Barrington, just west
      of the 405.....

          Am I alone in caring that black cod is on the Audubon/Monterey Aquarium list of endangered and/or polluting species?

          I love the versions I've had at Hong Kong-style restaurants but have been eschewing (not chewing!)it.

          I realize that bringing up such issues among food nuts can be problematic, but I can't help but believe there must be some kindred spirits out there.

          A Moist and most excellent Black Cod dish can be found in a little Chinese restaurant on Pico Blvd. in West L.A. Restaurant = Hop Li Chinese Restaurant.

            Isn't black cod smoked the same as Sable in delicatessans?

            I have had Black Cod many places and it is usually overcooked and quite salty. The best I have ever had was at Matsushisa. Not everything I had there was great and I am not a regular there. It was just so much better than any that I had ever had.

              I agree with Deborah. Matsuhisa has the best black Cod,perfectly cooked with a subtle, heavenly streak of dark sauce.
