westside sushi

I need recommendations from westsiders (Westwood, Marina del Rey etc and environs) for reliably fresh and delicious sushi - price is not an option. Thanks!

  1. top sushi joints on the westside, imo, are sushi zo and mori.

      of the two, mori will cost more $$.

      also, if you go to sushi zo, be aware that they offer just a couple of cooked items so everyone in your party will need to be ok with raw fish.

      i love them both, but for different things.
      at this moment, i love zo more, but it is an ever-changing vacillation between the two.
      sushi zo, imho, is a better deal, fwiw

        Please, PLEASE, don't go to Mori on a Sunday night!!! I know it's my fault to go on a Sunday night, but they shouldn't even open on a night when their fish is terribly unfresh. It ruins their reputation toally in my book.

      2. don't forget kiriko, sasabune, echigo

            Also Takao has wonderful cooked dishes - Lobster, great tempura, interesting seafood (see last photo), and Wagyu Beef from Kagoshima, Japan

        2. You definitely can't go wrong with Mori .

            1. Regardless where you go, you will get different grades of fish. You figure, there are only so many whole sale fish supply companies in DT LA.

              Get to know the chef and let him/her decide what you should eat for the day. That will guarantee freshness.
