Kazu Sushi Restaurant Review

: This is one of those unheralded gems among dozens of forgettable sushi bars, as well as a few celebrated venues, along this stretch of Ventura Boulevard. Despite a few tables draped in white linen beneath some artsy photos lining the walls, the place looks like any neighborhood sushi joint. There are even those ubiquitous posters of seafood species mounted behind the sushi bar. But if you sit at that bar and request the omakase (chef's choice), you'll be rewarded with a standout selection of mostly traditional sushi and sashimi dishes. A meal might begin with miniature Kumamoto oysters, followed by toro sushi, freshwater eel, Spanish mackerel, monkfish liver with ponzu gelée and three kinds of caviar, a creamy blue crab hand roll and succulent orange uni. Prices can easily get into the Matsuhisa range if you get carried away, but this is one of those delightful places that sushi enthusiasts like to be the first among their friends to discover. There are, of course, plenty of saké options to pair with your meal.
