We've been to so many sushi bars and would love to know your favorites. We don't mind traveling, just want something great. Any suggestions?
for omakase, i still like sushi zo best, but mine is a controversial position.
if ambiance means absolutely NOTHING to you, go to echigo in west LA and be sure to order their monkfish liver.
others on this board are very enamoured of mori sushi and kiriko.
Hide on Sawtelle is a no ambience, good value for large pieces place (NB: cash only).
On the other extreme, Asanebo in the Valley has smaller more exotic pieces at high prices.

Kanpai in Westchester is a pretty good neighborhood place. They have a wide selection of fish available for nigiri in the style with different sauces. They have a wide variety of cooked food and American style rolls as well if that's your thing.
