... for sake flight pairings, or otherwise?
Are there any in LA/OC?
Does Q have one? (J.L.??)
I don't believe there are, but I will gladly stand corrected.
i've had some itamae that i respect suggest that sake should be reserved to consume with sashimi because sake is made with rice. some itamae do not share this conviction, but then the average itamae here really does not do justice to the rice they serve so i doubt it would matter here. itamae yasuda, the one who ran the primo place in NYC before returning to japan has been quoted as saying that sushi is 90% about the rice.
i personally choose not to have sake with sushi & stick with green tea.
