    Had lunch. A bit disappointing. Good, but not great sushi, carpatchio and sashimi. Did not have the Italian credo available which we had really looked forward to. Would try again, but not as a straight sushi experience. Sushi Sushi down the street is much betterr for that. At least based on this one try. again it was good.

      I have no idea what they're serving for lunch. Thanks for reporting back! Yeah, don't expect straight-up sushi, even though it's in the name.

        I'll hit it up for dinner, maybe not for the whole hog omakase, still gotta save up some dough.

        but espeically for the seared toro and foie gras dish, and that uni risotto, hopefully i can either reguest them or order them off the menu.

        thanks.

      It's called Yojisan Sushi. Do the omakase at the bar. The uni risotto is incredible.

      Your apology for your internet lassitude on this one is accepted.

        forgive my rudeness, j.l., but did you ever say how much the omakase was at yojisan? inquiring minds want to know.
        thanks.

          Apologies. I forgot to reply. It was $115 per person, food only, as I recall.

            J.L., that seems pretty reasonable for what you got.

            (kevin, apparently J.L.'s too modest to link to his review and the awesome photos, so I'll do it: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/849967)

          Uni risotto? Didn't see that on the menu. Is it a reliable offering?

            Omakase items are up to the Chef's whim, but I suspect you can ask for it...

          Yojisan Sushi from one of the Drago brothers on Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills. I am trying it tomorrow and will report back.
