SUGARFISH, Los Angeles, CA

SUGARFISH Restaurant Review

: SUGARFISH in Brentwood is the second offshoot of chef Kazunori Nozawa's casual sushi restaurant. The dining room is larger than the first SUGARFISH in Marina del Rey, and displays a different décor highlighted by a soothing wood sculpture along one wall. What you won’t see is a sushi bar, since all dishes are prepared in the kitchen. There are specials and à la carte sushi and sashimi, but the easy way to go is to order one of the three fixed menus. The set menus are "Trust Me Lite" ($20), "Trust Me" ($30) and "THENozawa" ($40). But there is one rule you have to follow to assure the optimal taste of the sushi: eat it as it comes to your table and don’t wait for your friends or family to get their own. Why? Since Nozawa's style of sushi preparation features warm rice and very thin crisp nori, the heat of the rice will alter the nori if diners wait too long. Be forewarned: drinks are limited to sodas, tea, and a few beers, white wines, and sakes, and no dessert is offered. Other locations.
