Mori Sushi Restaurant Review

: Chef Morihiro Onodera (formerly of Takao in Brentwood) is a purist and an artist. The minimalist Japanese restaurant was designed by the proprietors with fresh bright colors and blonde wood. Rice paper lanterns glow overhead. Figure this: Most tabletop items were hand-crafted, and all dishes are served on handmade plates made by the owner and head chef. Choose the bar or a cozy corner table as things get noisy rather quickly. Chef Mori believes that Japanese saké and Champagne go best with sushi, but a selection of beer and white wine is also offered. As expected, chef Mori prides himself on tradition blended with California touches. All dishes are either fish or vegetable, but the variety of fish is impressive. In addition to an assortment of sushi, there are the standard dishes you’d expect plus daily specials. Start off with seaweed salad or roasted eggplant and shishito peppers then continue with tuna tartare, monkfish or miso marinated cod. Omakase (chef's choice) menus are available for diners that desire the comprehensive Mori Sushi experience.
