Great sushi last night
4/5 Stars...Holy cow! Had my first (and not last) experience last night. Sushi was heavenly. I have eaten at many many sushi bars in L.A., but this one would rank right at the top. Delicious, fresh and bountiful. Chef couldn't have been nicer. Didn't care in the least that the decor was minimal or the fact we were the only ones sitting at the bar. So you ask why only 4 stars, it's the price. Of course being omakase, one doesn't know the price. We just ate and enjoyed. Well, the cost was $228, before tip and without any alcohol. So would I go back, absolutely, just not as often as I want to.

how many people was the 228 tab for? one person? two people? or three people? if for two or three people, it's not terrible for quality sushi pricing.
i went once a few years back. and it was good, though not as good in my opinion or even close to Zo (which i don't go to any longer) nor hiko.
but it is expensive like the others, i think it was close to one hundred per when i went there. but for the same style of sushi, Zo is eons better.
What do the rest of you guys think that have gone to Nishi-ya, Echigo, Zo, Hiko, Nozawa, and Sushi Wasabi, all of which are in the same vein/style/mimic of what Nozawa started way back in the mid to late 1980s.???
i've only been to Zo & Nishi-Ya from your list and i can't tell you which i like better, only that they're both different and i love them both. Zo is pricier than Nishi-Ya, and i like the comfort of Nishi-ya as i know what to expect there- pretty much the same routine and i love every piece of it.
