Hide Restaurant Review

: Opened in 1979, Hide predated and survived the barrage of sushi bars rolling into L.A., thanks to its consistent quality and welcoming nature. The menu is old-school, and while the presence of California rolls is a concession to prevailing preferences, you won’t find a long list of everything-but-the-kitchen-sink rolls like at many sushi bars in town. The beer is not always served as cold as it should be and the sushi is not as refined as it is at the more expensive Westside sushi places, but the quality is good, the service is efficient and prices are reasonable. Considering the bamboo trim and Japanese tchotchkes, Hide could easily blend into a Tokyo side street.
