Japanese Restaurant Specializing in Grilled Eel

I'll be visiting Los Angeles from San Francisco in a week and would love to know if there are any Japanese restaurants specializing in grilled unagi dishes. In Japan I can go to an unagi restaurant that serves all grades of grilled eel served over rice or bento-style. Since there are so many Japanese restaurants in LA, I'm hoping a fellow Chowhound may have found such a place.

  1. Alas, the only all-eel-all-the-time restaurant I knew of in Los Angeles, which was in the Weller Plaza area, closed a decade or more ago. Both Izayoi and Sushi Gen, both downtown, do eel pretty well, though.

    Anyone else got hints?
