THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Ozumo Restaurant Review

: Spare yet lovely in typical Japanese fashion, and with a touch of California gloss, this Northern Cal transplant is an outpost of quiet elegance in bustling Fashion Island. The extensive nigiri sushi menu is augmented by a list of specialty hand rolls and cold appetizers---our favorite being the big eye tuna tartare with avocado cream and crunchy spears of endive and gyoza chips for diping. Of the hot dishes, robata grilled meats reign supreme. Simply yet perfectly prepared, they're a traditional Japanese specialty, unlike the many fusion-style creations that appear elsewhere on the menu. Ozumo charges more than similar restaurants, but the high quality of ingredients and the elegant atmosphere is enough to justify it.
