Sushi Near Cedars-Sinai (3rd and Robertson)
I am going to take a group of 8 out next week for a holiday lunch, and everybody wants sushi. Any suggestions on where to go that won't bring pain to my wallet?
is this a duplicate thread? i replied last night but it's not here...
anyway, my vote goes to Hirozen. very good sushi, and a bit less expensive than Roku.
I can't vouch for these -- but they are local & have lunch specials: Boss Sushi on La Cienega, south of Wilshire & Haru Sushi on San Vicente, south of 3rd street. (near the Mark Goodson building & LA Paella). (Thank goodness Matsuhisa isn't open for lunch. You won't be accused of being stingy!) Good luck!
Please check out Ajisai on Santa Monica Blvd and Palm in West Hollywood (across from the car wash). It is small, intimate, and the sushi chef is quite remarkable. They have a sushi lunch special that is around $14 or $15. You will have to call in advance, since they will have to move around the tables to accomodate a party your size. This is a much better value than Sushi Roku, and better quality than Sushi Mac. You can't walk from Cedars Sinai, but it is a short drive up San Vicente and just a couple of blocks East on SM Blvd.
My favorite in the neighborhood is Izaka-ya by Katsu-ya on 3rd. The quality of their fish is excellent and they have a large variety of dishes. Prices are reasonable for the quality, especially for lunch. Just be warned that it's very popular and gets very crowded.
