I would be very interested in recommendations for tempura. Is tempura ever served like sushi, a la carte at a tempura bar?
There's a great tempura bar at 1000 Cranes in the New Otani Restaurant in Little Tokyo. Cooked to order and you have the ability to choose the "Omakase" course in which the chef picks for you.
You probably don't want to hear about this, but there is a fairly awesome tempura bar at Matsuhisa. Very, very expensive, and only 4 or 5 seats--quite probably the single toughest reservation in town. You might give them a call anyway.
