As we know all too well, there is almost an endless list of sushi restaurants in the Los Angeles area. But very few have a chef who has learned French cuisine on top of the art of cutting and serving raw fish.

Because of this training, Japanese-born-and-raised chef Keizo Ishiba creates more elaborate sushi in his Culver City restaurant K-ZO than most places. The rest of his menu—small plates hot and cold, salads and desserts—are also a cut above.


K-ZO is our current Los Angeles restaurant of the week, and has earned a place on our Los Angeles Top 10 sushi list. And our collection of top 10 Los Angeles restaurant lists is nearly endless as well!
