Hi Guys,

I personally stay far far away from citysearch. Just look at their rankings for top Chinese restaurants in LA. About 7 out of 10 places are seriously gringo Chinese restraunts and the rest of them are just plain mainstream. C'mon what about all the Chinese restaurants in the *real* Chinatown, the San Gabriel Valley? I think most of the reviewers never go east of the 110 fwy.

Anyway, Humuhumu, if you're not busy, drive along Ventura Blvd in Studio city, there's probably 3 sushi restaurant on each block. This does include the previously mentioned Sushi Nozawa. I believe Nozawa san is the one with the reputation of the "sushi nazi" and have thrown people out for ordering untradtional stuff like California Rolls. I've been here a couple of times, just sit at the bar, and accept his omakazi (chef's choice), which is will probably include tuna sashimi with ponzu and some spring onions.

I haven't settled on my own personal favorite, but previously it was a place called Tsukasa on the third floor of the Mitzwa Plaza in J-Town. The master there, Kawasaki san was a very excellent and graceful host. Often I would ask him to simply prepare me something unique. Tsukasa has changed names last year, and I haven't stepped in to see if Kawasaki san is still the owner.

I've been told that Z Sushi in Alhambra on the corners of Atlantic, Garfield, and Huntington is a real gem, if you're ever in that neck of the woods. I haven't sampled it myself.

Whenever you are in Beverly Hills, check this place out.
Expensive, but worth a visit.

Hey I ate at Matsuhisa! I was on a shoot in LA. Emeril was sitting at the next table, and Chevy Chase was eating there too.

I must have gone on an off night!
