3 Omakase Musts in Los Angeles

By Rachel Cohen | March 18, 2020 | Food & Drink

1. Sushi Note

Opened in 2018, the 30-seat eatery from celebrated chef Kiminobu Saito has a seven-seat bar dedicated to serving omakase-style meals from Saito. Housed in the former Bizen space, the eatery also has a notable wine program from co-partner Dave Gibbs and beverage director Andrew Pattison. Sip and stay for a while! Sherman Oaks, 818.802.3443,

2. Q Sushi

The Michelin star winner helmed by chef Hiroyuki Naruke provides a traditional omakase experience in an intimate locale. While there are tables, the real action is at the 10-seat sushi bar where you’ll be served piece after piece of flawless fish. With only two seatings per night, a visit will require a bit of planning to assure a place, but we guarantee the experience is well worth the wait. DTLA, 213.225.6285

3. Sushi Ginza Onodera

Executive chef Yohei Matsuki serves Edomae-style sushi with fresh fish imported from Tokyo's Toyosu Fish Market and Niigata, Japan. Serving an omakase tasting menu exclusively, the $300 per person meal is sure to tickle your taste buds. The chefs use a variety of methods such as marinating in soy sauce, simmering in broth, and curing in salt or kombu sea kelp from several hours to a few days to perfect the umami flavors.
