I am planning a first trip to LA towards the fall and I love sushi. I am looking for some great sushi restaurants that have particularly unique and creative specialty rolls or something different from the average sushi restaurant. Recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
rU looking for fusion sushi type places that are good at rolls, or actual sushi places?? if you're looking for the latter, i'd say try sushi zo, nozawa, kiriko, sushi gen, etc.
I'm not sure where you'll be when in LA but if you venture to the Valley, we like Teru Sushi on Ventura Blvd in Studio City. People also rave about the original Katsu-ya also on Ventura Blvd but I didn't like it as much as Teru. The best that I've had so far is Geisha House in Hollywood. VERY good sushi, great atmosphere, great service...I highly recommend it.
My favorite sushi is at Sushi Gen in Little Tokyo. However, it looks like you are looking for more of a fusion place that add avocado, jalapeno, and sauces to their fish. For that kind I like Matsuhisa, Nobu, and Katsuya.
